Every once and a while I like to take a break from the food, recipe and travel posts that I normally blog about. Recently I was contacted by Recoverywell.org out of Wilmington, Delaware.

As a blogger for the Helsinki Secret Residence, I was able to experience, as a local, the food, culture and beautiful nature of this city and its surrounding areas. Here in this post I share my Helsinki highlights with you all.
Jädelino is a quaint, friendly gelateria that serves top quality, homemade Italian ice cream in the the Teurastamo district of Helsinki. The flavors at Jädelino are very creative.
