        This is a great hotel and very centrally located with restaurants and shopping centre close by. All the things we wanted to see were within walking distance. Staff were friendly and helpful.

        There are some things about Scandinavian countries I had forgotten, and Helsinki is a nice place to be reminded. The door to your hotel room opens outwards, rooms are efficient and functional and hotel breakfasts looks like a summer BBQ with a variety of meats, fish, cheeses and pickles.

        The centrally located hotel was a throw-back to the …

        Unexpected Stopover

        A travel blog entry by mickq1 on May 16, 2016

        What was originally going to be a two day stopover in Tokyo has now been changed to a one day stopover (hopefully). Those that know us would appreciate that we see the journey more important than the destination.
        Consequently our flights started in Manchester this morning, and have ended in Helsinki tonight. Hoping to connect with our Sydney …

        Found the voucher for our city tour this morning and set off to the Esplanade Park to find where to exchange the voucher for the tickets. We walked the whole length of the park but didn't find where to speak to anyone. In the end someone pointed us in the direction of the tourist office and BINGO. We were told where to catch the bus and that the …

        The bus came to pick us up and take us to the …

        ... I paid very close attention to where I was walking but it seems that that was not the case. Excellent planning skills meant that I had my phone though, so I stood outside a McDonalds and used their free wifi to get google maps up and get myself back on track.

        So I started walking again but something just didn’t feel right, I hadn’t seen these buildings before so I asked a woman who looked local (whatever that means??) and ...
