…busy morning on day one proper in Helsinki – wandered the streets a bit getting the lay of the land, had breakfast in Esplanadi park, caught the ferry to the Suomenlinna sea fortress where I was adopted by a South Korean tour (thus all the pics!), had fried squid with garlic mayo from a market stall for lunch and then rode the tram for a while taking advantage of my 4 day ticket…knackered now but have scoped pub(s) for later!
…nice morning riding the rails (well the trams!) Took advantage of my dayrider ticket and rode the entire route of one tram getting off whenever it looked interesting. Watched a bit of a schools footy cup final, helped some lost Brits, got lost myself looking for the Olympic stadium (you’d think it would be easy!), booked a boat trip for tomorrow morning, went to the Cathedral and the morning market…now a break before popping back to the conference for the last 2 keynotes..
