... for Orla in a rapidly decreasing in size but very cool, child unfriendly flat. We decided to head out rain or no rain for a walk round the docks. We were not disappointed and there was in fact more rain along with other forms of weather such as wind! Orla loved it but we were less enamored is we headed to the trusty K market.

... inn at Helsinki airport. In the intervening time we did venture in to downtown Helsinki to take in some of the local culture. We were met with a shower of sleet and snow. The irony was not lost on me that we were still only 3 hours from the UK in the snow when we were meant to be on the other side of the world in 30 degree heat.
