Still Hoping for Helsinki Finland trip

Alex developed a fascination with Finland several years ago. He loved the band Apulanta and even had a Finnish flag on his birthday cake when he turned 12. Helsinki is on his bucket list as a city he wanted to skateboard in before he died. We would love to find someone with a Finland connection who could get Flat Alex to Helsinki. If you know anyone who can help with this, please let us know at Thanks, so much

Helsinki update!!
The son of my mom's friend travels to Helsinki regularly. He's there now and will try to get some pics with Flat Alex. If not this time then, hopefully next month. Miracles do happen.

South Africa

"Hi Jennie,
Hope you can use the pictures that I took with Flat Alex, it was not that easy as it is not safe to get out of the car when travelling in the game park.
As you can see he saw giraffe,zebra,kudu,lots of birds,elephants, but they were too far to photograph,and also lion which were waiting at the river for their dinner that night. Flat Alex camped out for two nights,and we cooked great food on the braai(barbecue),and I can let you know the menu if you would like that too. The game park is called Pilanesburg,and is a beautiful place to watch game, and is about 2 hours from my home. 
Well he really enjoyed the trip and he did see lots of game.
Wishing you lots more adventures with Flat Alex,all the best," Fiona   

Alex, there's a giraffe behind you!

"Flat Alex before the 90 sec zip line! The line to the right is Ron's. The little bitty brown platform on the distance is where we landed, after going up the line on the other side of the canyon and coming back down again! Super super cool! Flat Alex went the entire way with me!" Chris B.
