Day 3 - Helsinki

A travel blog entry by sezzawilliams


So after a night of catching up we had a semi sleep in waking about 8. We took our time gathering our things then headed out for the day. First up, we walked to the city centre. Walking through Esplanade Park and getting coffee at the Kauppatori (Market Square). We then strolled through the Kauppatori towards the Ferris wheel. We took a 15 minute ride in the wheel which gave us a beautiful view over Helsinki. Luckily it was a beautiful morning and ...

Sightseeing in Helsinki

A travel blog entry by herbguhl


We knew Helsinki was going to be a rather cool and cloudy 12 degrees in the morning, but we weren't quite prepared for the strong wind when we disembarked. But this is our most northerly port of call on the cruise, at about 60 degrees latitude, same as the border of our Northwest Territories.

A travel blog entry by pandasphere


... we started wondering - if we happened to leave 10 minutes earlier, what would have happened to my luggage? Better not to think too much I think, and instead devote my energy to writing a verbose complaint to United!

Plans for tomorrow are pretty light: hitting up the hotel sauna, figuring out a ferry to take to Tallinn, and spending some time wandering around the (surprisingly) small part of Helsinki we haven't seen it. We've done good here so far!
