Where I stayed
Eurohostel - Helsinki

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Made it to Helsinki without a problem! Send grandma to transfer area, found the bus to the city, rode it to train station, took tram #4, found the hostel and here I am :)
Hey, the have free morning sauna here, even though it's fairly hot outside :)
Time to take a shower, have a snack and explore the city!

Update: Helsinki seems like a nice place so far :) I walked around, took some pictures and then hopped onto an evening boat tour. There is a ton of islands around here for sure! All of them are covered with forests and cottages. There are even islands covered with saunas :) Overall the tour was pretty interesting, but the tour recording was too quiet and I had to strain my hearing all the time. Also, at some point a rowdy group of about 20 people spontaneously started singing acapella, very beautifully too! In the end the tour guide recording was shut off :)

Was the recording coming out of a speaker on the boat?
Where were the singing people from? :)

You can't wear clothes in sauna %) But they are separate.

Yes, it's much better when they give people those little headphones.

>Where were the singing people from? :)
Slovenia, I think. They said they give concerts all over the world, in US too :)
