    kurzer Aufenthalt in Helsinki

    September 1 in Finland

    Da wir bereits gestern Abend in Helsinki angekommen waren, hatten wir heute noch Zeit für einen Spaziergang durch die Stadt bevor es auf die Fähre ging. Wie so oft in den großen Städten waren wieder mal viele deutsche Touristen unterwegs. Helsinki hat eine schöne Innenstadt, aber wirklich beeindruckt hat sie uns nicht. Da haben wir schon schönere Städte gesehen. Vielleicht lag es am Wetter und wir haben auch nur einen kleinen Teil von Helsinki erkundet. Nach einem Rentier-Hotdog fuhren wir um 15.30 zur Fähre, die uns nach Stockholm bringt.Read more

    Helsinki, Finland

    June 1, 2017 in Finland

    Planes, trains, automobiles and ferries! I have covered all forms of transportation so far, except ballooning. This is still a possibility. Today's weather featured sun, high winds, rain and hail. Forecast for Helsinki 7 degrees. Yikes, winter again. So glad I have stayed healthy so far; must be all the cheese I'm eating. Twenty minute trek to the hostel and a one hour wait to check in, followed by a one hour circle tour of the campus before I finally found my dorm. Totally wasted 2 hours. Dropped off my pack and hustled out for 3.5 hour tour of the sites and the city. All can be done rather quickly as it really isn't a big city. It rained and hailed three times and the weather changes every 10 minutes. No wonder this is the country of the highest suicide rate-enough to put anyone over the edge. I walked along the harbour front and was surprised by a moving object and lo and behold to my surprise two jack rabbits. So cute and so huge! Helsinki is very expensive and so I've decided to move on to Turku tomorrow heading west to Stockholm. Hoping to meet up with Tyler and Amanda in the next few days in Malmo.Read more

  • Day13

    We caught the ferry back from Suomenlinna and strolled through the markets. They sell everything at these markets, from fresh fruit and vegetables, reindeer pelts, clothes, hats, shoes, slippers, wooden products, souvenirs and a range of cooked food. The market stalls are there seven days a week, and they set up and pack down every morning and evening! It is a riot of colour, noise and aromas, and the seagulls squeaking and swooping to steal food just adds to the atmosphere.Read more

    Views from the Skywheel

    August 16, 2017 in Finland

    The views are a bit blue because the windows were tinted. Not a bad aerial view though.

    Helsinki Central Market

    August 4, 2017 in Finland

    I really enjoy these central markets. It seems most places have them. The largest I've seen was in Riga. This one in Helsinki is right at the harbor. The pics are outside and inside the market, and the last is my bowl of smoked reindeer soup that I had for lunch at the "Soup Kitchen." And that really is the name of the stall in the market.

    Helsinki Day Cruise

    July 9, 2016 in Finland

    I decided to take a ferry to Helsinki today for our day off. Arrived into port around 10:30 am and off to check out the sites. So far I saw two beautiful cathedrals and a cool market place. Going to spend the rest of the day touring. More updates soon!
