We took the Greyhound at 7 am on Sunday, got to Toronto at noon, and flew to Finland in the afternoon. We arrived pretty tired but also excited. After all, this is Finland. How many times will I get to visit this place?
The only problem with Finland is… Finnish. It doesn’t look like any language I know and it really didn’t make any sense to me. Way too many “ö” and “ë” if you ask me. But fortunately, most people spoke great English so we were able to get around without too much trouble.
Helsinki is small but very nice. We walked a bit everywhere and ended up by the harbor and a small market. The two churches nearby were very beautiful… and the atmosphere was quite friendly.
And we are now in Beijing!
