Well it's been go go go as we rush across Scandinavia, well we are now in a Nordic nation one that doesn't play football. That's that code we call soccer they are ice hockey mad. We are in Helsinki tonight the Capital of Finland.
Last night we took the ferry from Stockholm, we left a 4:45 pm and got to Helsinki at 9:55am this morning. The ferry is almost a cruise liner with 7 restaurants, an English Pub and a cafeteria. Duty free shops and entertainment.
Landing in Helsinki the weather looked a bit off and we even had a light sprinkle while doing a quick tour of the city.
As you can see the sun made an appearance and everyone in Helsinki was happy.
Tomorrow we have an early start as we have to be on the coach by 7:20 am for our drive to Saint Petersburg. The tour director wants an early start as the border crossings can be quite lengthy.
If all goes well we will start the city tour tomorrow evening.
When entering Russia we will probably lose communication with the outside world so will not be on online till the 19th Aug.
Cheers for now
