Helsinki November 2008
After a brief stay at home - a long weekend in Helsinki. Two full days in Helsinki plus travel days at each end. Trip booked via Expedia who suggested the Scandic Grand Marina in the harbour area. Fantastic city for a long weekend - probably even better for a longer trip. My travel trip (i) for Helsinki - get a Helsinki Card (covers all local public transport including out to Suomenlinna and more museums than it's possible to visit in a long weekend). Travel trip (ii) - when all the other museums have closed head for Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art; it opens late even on a Sunday, the building is spectacular and the collection is pretty good too.
