Trips abroad will never be boring again. I might even name my moose. Any suggestions on an appropriate name?
|In Finnish pubs you get tomato and mozzarella toast on rye bread. Bliss. Good food and a great evening with H1 & H2.|
|Struva! A sweet weird looking thing Finns eat to celebrate the 1st of May. Luckily H2 invited me over so we could make a head start ...|
All done! It's a fun but messy thing to eat.
|Better take a walk afterwards. But maybe not a dip just yet. These jetties are used for rug cleaning in the summer. Or at least they used to be, in most places it's now illegal to wash your rugs straight in the sea.|
|It might be time for spring and summer, but there sure is something magical about the blue light a winter evening.|
|On my way back to the hostel.|
|Final stop of the trip, my brother's house. I do have cute nephews ...|
|A visit to the near by playground. Wheeee!|
|And then the parents had to have a go of course ... I felt nauseous just looking at them go round and round and up and down. Brrr.|
My flight was delayed by a dent in the aircraft (alway nice to know you're sitting in a slightly faulty plane) but I did eventually get back home to London. I've heard rumors about warmer weather here soon, so bring it on!
|Helsinki Cathedral trough the tram's electric network.|
|Alexanterinkatu, the main shopping street in Helsinki, slightly abandoned. Named after Alexander I of Russia.|
|I wouldn't mind one of these houses set on an island.|
|But until I can afford that, I might just have a drink at this pavilion instead.|
|Clash of architecture. The Uspenski cathedral.|
|Okay, so spring hasn't reached all of the city yet ...|
|But soon this ferry will take sun worshipers and tourists alike to Suomenlinna.|
