I have mentioned in previous posts that I got some travelling opportunities by accompanying my dad to dancing competitions. I think Helsinki was in 2000 and I did some sightseeing with my dad and the other dance people. There are memories of a funny harbour cruise. Maybe alcohol was involved but it was a funny group and we laughed a lot.
After the first day, I had one more day for Helsinki where I walked around in this beautiful but Nordic cool style city. On my last day I went to Turku by train to see something else. It was mostly train riding… 3 hrs each way?… and only a short time walking around the station and along a river.
