Starting the journey with a couple of cocktails.
View from ferry.
The famous cappuccino. The rest of the world was partying hard, but I just had to try the cappuccino they had in the bar. And wonderful it was.
Arriving at Helsinki.
Lesson learnt: do not wear jeans when it’s 35 degrees outside.
"Our" ferry looked something like that, except that it was red on the outside. These passenger ferries that traffic in the Baltic sea can take up to 2,500 passengers and they are filled with bars, restaurants and duty free shops. Since my brother (see below) is working on one of them, we bumped into some of his friends and hang out with them.
Helsinki Railway Station.
One piece of little brother. The suitcase is from Primark: I got it years ago for 10 quid and it’s still whole :D
In Helsinki you can catch the train to two of the most exciting cities in the world: St. Petersburg and Moscow.
