... The express bus link to the central train station is well marked and cost 6.5 Euros. The ride took half an hour. It was a sunny day and although it was about 1:30 pm the sun was not high in the sky and had that pre-sunset look. Around the airport I saw granite rock outcrops similar to our Muskoka or Parry Sound area . The highway into the city was much like any developed country with lots of commercial buildings bordering the route. The presence of ...

... conversational Finnish did not disappoint, though I suspect my turn of phrase may be akin to Dickensian English.

Another UNESCO World Heritage site. The"fortress of Finland" has been described as "the Gibraltar of the North" and you can certainly understand why. Considerable fortifications and numerous large cannons spread over 2 Islands, along with about ...

... du Roi, où j'étais enfin seul pour mes photos -- victoire!

Le départ est arrivé bien trop vite, parce que j'ai vraiment, vraiment aimé Suomenlinna. C'est un endroit qui me correspond d'une certaine manière, un de ces endroits où je m'imaginerais bien vivre, être bénévole au musée les weekends, profiter de la mer et du calme. Futurs amis finlandais, si vous avez un travail et une petite maison pour moi sur l'île, c'est le moment de m'en parler! :D
