Hi there! I have lived in Helsinki, Finland all my life. We live in a quiet residential area just a few kilometers from the city center. We are an active family with three kids, 14, 16 and 21 yrs. We do lots of sports, dance, horse riding, racquet sports and travelling etc. We signed up with 9flats because we are usually looking for nice apartments instead of hotels while travelling. I think that you get the most out of travelling when meeting local people and get involved with local activities.
