This morning the temperature was freezing -25 degrees when I woke up so I could not think any better way to spend the morning than getting inspired in the travel fair. Yesterday started the Matka 2016 – Nordic travel fair in Helsinki and it will continue until Sunday evening. I joined the fair with my school friend in the morning when it was only opened for professional (the fair is important part of my studies) and it was surely more nice to walk around when it was still not super crowded with people looking desperately offers for hot and sunny places where to escape this cold winter.
This was the first time for me in the travel fair even though it has been organized already many years. Somehow I have been in Italy many years in this time and always missed the opportunity. It was inspiring and definitely eye opening, and I got some great ideas for my studies but also for future trips. Example Stockholm got me very exited even though it is so close from here and easy to reach. I also ended up ordering Mondo travel magazine so this year the travel inspiration will be arriving every month from my mailbox.
The fair has more than 1000 exhibitors from over 80 countries so I can promise there is something for everyone. Also it is nice how widely Finland and its many amazing destinations are present in the fair. I hope u can get inspired with the pictures and later this weekend you find yourself in the fair- don`t miss it if you love to travel!
