Helsinki 15 June 2013
The pictured flower stall was a stand-out. Our hotel accommodation was really comfortable and the breakfast was magnificent. Pity the room was a bit small. we enjoyed our walks but we had only a limited time there. We will be back for a few more days later in July. It may nearly be midsummer but we and the locals needed to wear jumpers, jackets etc as there was a cold breeze coming off the Baltic Sea. Just about everyone we spoke to had a good command of English. It is a very tourist friendly place. You can see some of our photos in our picasa album and visit the "Helsinki First Visit" album.
LATER Sorry the Helsinki album is now shared - my mistake.
