Summary

The Best of Helsinki introduces travelers to the key sights of Helsinki, activities that can be as exotic as the unique culture of this Nordic country, and local favorites that include events, places and tastes that few foreigners know about. The book is a visual guide to the city, featuring plenty of maps and photographs for tour planning, for quickly absorbing the elemental information about the key places, and for navigating the city. 
Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is located by the sea, and surrounded by a geographically large, but scarcely inhabited country that leaves plenty of space for wild forests and clear water lakes. The metropolitan area is home for 1.3 million people, but the city itself is relatively compact and easy to explore on your own. Helsinki is a modern Scandinavian city dominated by the country’s unique culture between the east and the west, Nordic architecture, buzzing nightlife and bustling business. 
The Best of Helsinki provides valuable tourist information for the destination, and cultural tips from local people that help to make travelers’ stay in the city enjoyable.

    Peanut Butter and Naan - Stories...

    Fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants mom Jennifer Magnuson knew her spoiled suburban brood needed a wake-up call—she just couldn’t find the time to fit one in. But when her husband was offered a position in India, she saw it for what it was: the perfect opportunity for her family to unplug from their over-scheduled and pampered lives in Nashville and gain some much-needed perspective. What she didn’t realize was how much their time in India would transform her as well.
    
    A combination of Eat, Pray, Love and Modern Family, with a dash of Chelsea Handler thrown in for good measure, Peanut Butter and Naan is Magnuson’s hilarious look at the chaos of parenting against a backdrop of malaria, extreme poverty, and no conveniences of any kind—and her story of rediscovering herself and revitalizing her connection with those she loves the most. In India, after years of parenting under a cloud of anxiety, Magnuson found a renewed sense of adventure and fearlessness (a discovery that was totally worth the many months of hiding anti-malarial medication in her kids’ morning oatmeal), and started to become the mother she’d always hoped to be. Hers is a story about motherhood that will not only make you laugh and nod with recognition—it will inspire you to fall in love with your own family all over again.
