Restaurant day!

... pointed out a massive church and told us the name. It was obviously memorable. We found the design museum and paid a formidably east German looking student €20 for the 'small' museum. It was cool but a bit of a rip off. Kate hit the nail on the head with "worth €5". Down in the basement there was an installation by a Dutch artist.

... country has gone its own eclectic way ever since. This northerly capital is a vibrant, modern city, with many open parks and gardens, and some fine neo-classical buildings in the Senate Square.

So apparently cutlets are rissoles, and my Russian-born, Finnish-speaking couch surfing host knows better English than I do!

Around 6am I looked out the window this morning and it was totally white – thick fog – so bad I couldn't see the sea. Someone later said that between 3am and 4am the ships fog horn was blasting constantly but we didn’t hear that.

We arrived into port at Helsinki around 10am and we didn’t attempt to rush off – we’d had a light breakfast from room service and so we went down to the International Café and had a ...
