European Vacation day 5: Helsinki

Not much to write about todays events, mainly because there weren’t many.  After waking up we walked to the market for some breakfast.  I had a plate of sausage and potatoes.  Saori had a wonderfully delicious thin pancake with berry sauce and cream.  We enjoyed our leisurely breakfast and then strolled back to our apartment for a quick nap.

That quick nap turned out to be a five hour nap.  After waking up (again) we relaxed in the room, and then went back to the market square to meetup with  Tokyo University student that Saori had met while wandering around the previous day.

We chatted a for a couple of hours and had a couple of beers and then said our goodbyes.

Saori and I then made our way back to our room so we could work on making our hotel reservations for Prague, our next destination which we were catching a flight to the next morning.  It was an early night, and we went to sleep before 10pm.

So far, the most uneventful day of the entire trip.  But also, the most relaxing.

It; nice to go slow once in a while.  After all, that’ what vacations are for, doing exactly what you want, when you want.

Let’s see what tomorrow and Prague have to offer us.

    Much love, MOM

    So, doing a heritage tour, huh? Sounds like it’s a lot of fun, but I think you need to find a place for karoake, just to liven things up. Never been to Scandanavia, but it’s on my list (tho not likely Finland). Enjoying the pics and your musings, catch up with you later…

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
