    Sibeliuse monument

    July 30, 2017 in Finland

    Kõmpisime monumendi juurde, et see kõige ägedam skulptuur ka üle vaadata. Võimas oli küll ja.
    Hotelli tagasi tulime tiiruga, natuke mereäärtpidi ja kõrvaltänavaid. Leidsime teepealt ka poe kust mõtlesime, et võtame igaks juhuks hotelli joogivett kuid seisime 2min veeriiuli ees ja ei saanud aru, milline vesi ilma gaasita on. Küsisime lõpuks teenindaja abi. Huvitav et neil ei ole vee pudelitel teistes keeltes tekste. Väljusime poest ka suurele Indrekule kingitusega.Read more

    Just across the pond

    August 31, 2017 in Finland

    I was up early this morning to get the ferry to Helsinki. It never occurred to me that I needed to pre-book my ticket or get there much earlier than a half hour before the ferry was due to leave. So I got this strange / put out look from the lady, the check-in actually closes 20min before sailing, lucky for me!!!

    It's a big ferry and going across there is barely anyone one it. There is a heated outdoor area at the back and they even have a Burger King!! And the duty free alcohol range is amazing. Going back to Tallinn it wad busier and full of eastern European men, I figure truck drivers. It's only a two hour ride, and we even left before sailing time!! Efficiency for you. The ride is smooth the water is fairly flat, I guess it doesn't get that rough due to it being a bay.

    Helsinki well it's pretty, though was grey and raining. I didn't get to see much but I liked what I saw. I walked around the old harbour area, so many nice buildings. There was this lovley old indoors marketplace, full of little permanent stalls selling all kinds of food including caviar and reindeer, I didn't have either. But I did have this nice fish soup made on a tomatoe base, was yummy.

    Around the harbour there were stalls selling food as well as variety of hand made things and souvenirs. And of course I had to by something, this painting of a bear by a local woman. I think the bear is Finland's national symbol.

    The Russian orthodox church is so opulent compared to the main Lutheran one which as you can imagine is plain as Jane in inside.

    All the buildings are massive, big imposing things. Thought pretty enough.

    I came across the Merimenko shop, I was in heaven, if only I could have bought this amazing duvet cover, oh well. I'll settle on an apron. I didn't realise it was from Finland.
