Where I stayed
What I did
There's not much to differentiate this place from any of the other Baltic States really, the writing is a bit different and it's viciously expensive here but that's about it.
It rained a bit this morning so I did my usual, that is not very much. headed off into Helsinki to do a bit of sightseeing in the afternoon. Ran into an Australian guy Paul, who is on an epic 19000KM ride from Australia to the UK, he is such a nice guy that he has brought his mother on the trip with him. Check out his website for more info-
We wandered around the city centre for an hour or so then stopped for coffee & people watching, it was raining a little so not too much was going on.
We found a church carved out of stone so had a quick look in there, after that not really much going on. There were a number of quite weird statues of half baby half devil kind of thing dotted around. Not really sure what that was about but I'm sure it's art to someone.....
So that's if for Helsinki, the most Northerly part of my trip....to celebrate I'm looking a bit camp in one of the photos...not sure why!
