    We loved our stay here. It was convenient to Tram 4. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast had an amazing variety of choices. We also ate dinner one night in the hotel restaurant and it was very good. Someone had a lot of vision to turn a former prison into a 4 star hotel.

    We set off to see the Holy Spirit Church today as it had been closed due to a special service when we went the other day. It is very old and quite ornate with many paintings around the dark wood balcony. Ally had read about a hidden viewing platform on Toompea Hill so we also quick marched up there to look for it. We found it and enjoyed the view …

    Last day in Helsinki.

    Trip by the mighty no 4 tram to the Seurasaari Open Air Museum.

    This fine collection of old wooden bits has been brought from all over Finland and reconstructed on a charming island only 4 km from the city. Founded in 1909 there are over 85 buildings, churches, farm houses, stables, sheds and boats.

    We are staying in a hotel that started life as a prison.
    Great meal last night in the Jailhouse Restaurant including Johnny Cash in the background. No prizes for guessing the play list.

    Passed up the mushroom soup with reindeer but may still get to it.

    Have to admit that cost was probably the same as Graham and Helena's …

    Flight from Nice with Norwegian Air Shuttle, which sounds like a couple of blokes in a Cessna. But for those who like to know these things (TWLTKTT) Norwegian is the 4th largest low cost carrier in Europe And has something like 244 aircraft.

    3.5 hours later and we are at Helsinki Airport which has an enormous number of gates but not many …

    ... based on the interior appearance and whilst I have seen a lot from the outside, I haven't been inside that many. From the outside the building is largely just a large rock bank with a rectangular concrete entrance and a copper dome protruding above the rock. We waited 20 minutes before the next bus arrived hoping that there would be room as there were quite a few waiting. Fortunately we all got on and completed the northern circuit passing the Sibelius ...
