  • Imagine the excitement and intrigue as you wander around the city, guided using a printed map and a list of photo challenges. The aim is not to click the most obvious shots, but to get unique perspectives based on your interpretation of the task, creating a unique bonding experience with your loved one. As the day progresses, so does your understanding and synchronization with your partner till you instantly get what the other person is thinking. This date is sure to provide you with laughs, surprises, and many memorable moments.

Preparation steps:

  • For this adventure, it’s essential to plan ahead. Do some research on Helsinki’s landmarks and prepare a list of creative, fun photo challenges, making sure they are varied and require different perspectives or poses from both of you. Print a map of the city and mark each location that will be part of your tour. Pack a bag with a camera (or use your smartphone), a bottle of water, some snacks, and prepare yourself to have fun. You also need to dress comfortably as per the weather, considering you'll be mostly walking or using public transit.

Some tips:

  • Try to create your photo challenge list ahead but don’t reveal it until the day of the date for the element of surprise. Make it a point to take breaks; perhaps stop by a local café or a picturesque spot to relax, chat, and share your experiences of the day. Remember, the goal is not to complete all challenges but enjoying the process and the city. Embrace your creativity, and don’t be afraid to be silly. This is about having fun together and exploring the city in a new light.
