Helsinki, Finland -  

 Right, let's be honest, Helsinki is not a backpackers city. It really isn't! It's very expensive and in my mind more suited to a romantic weekend or maybe part of an actual 'holiday' in Finland, while exploring Tampere and Turku.

I docked in a city full of beautiful blonde women, expensive restaurants, high line fashion and a similar (no doubt cooler) climate to England. I haven't seen my shorts in weeks! My hostel sat between the Olympic stadium and the Finnair football stadium. Most times of the day there was some football to watch.

The supermarkets were reasonable, the hostel comfy but I'll leave the rest to the pictures.

Next stop, St Petersburg, Russia
