So happy I'm back! Perfect way to end the trip, unfortunately it is nearly finished :(

WOW! WHAT A TREAT! My last hotel for the trip is by far the ultimate best! It's so plush I want to move in here permanently. The photos will explain it best, which I'll upload when I find decent internet strength. Not only do I get a mega huge comfy bed, but it has a lounge area, separate toilet which is bigger than most of the bathrooms I've used this trip, and a bathroom that nearly made me cry it's so magnificent. It's bigger than the one at home and it has not just a normal bath, but extra deep & roomy with complimentary bath salts! Yay! One more night to feel like a Queen!

Today I was going to spend most of the time shopping, but because it's Sunday most of the small shops are closed, which is all the trendy design shops. Luckily though my hotel is in the centre of this shopping district so I'll have time before going to the airport tomorrow. I've had mixed feelings today....I'm so happy to be back in Helsinki but at the same time extremely sad it's close to being over. This place feels like home. I can actually walk around, knowing where I'm going, without using a map. I even helped two sets of tourists with directions. Now if only I could get a handle on this difficult language I'd completely blend in!

Well for my final night I've decided to go out for a special dinner. It's actually an Italian/Spanish restaurant. Yummy meal with a particularly lovely Italian white wine.

Back at the hotel and have finished most of my packing. It's 11.30pm and I've still not had my bath. Time doesn't stop me though because I've got a really long flight to catch up on sleep. Bath salts, loofah, dim lighting, music playing (HIM of course, their acoustic album) and a bottle of champagne from the mini bar and I'm set! Total indulgence and bliss.
