Today we arrived in Helsinki (another country to add to the evergrowing list!!). After a short walk into town we headed straight to the fish market to catch a boat over to a Sea Fortress called Suomenlinna. The boats returning to town left every hour so we decided one hour would be enough before heading back to the city and seeing more beautiful buildings and churches. We even saw a marching band before heading to the outskirts of town to see the old Olympic stadium (nothing spectacular!) and some bizzare statues and rock churches before our day was over and time to head back to the ship. Quite a lovely city to walk around again!
