It's clear that in the short trip from Russia to Finland, we have entered a different world. Being hungry right off the train, we quickly found a cafe close to the station and walked in. We are used to struggling through menus in other languages and this one was in Finnish. However, what happened next did not happen for the last few months - a smiling gentleman approached us and said, in a slight Scandanavian accent "would you like me to translate for you?" Whahhh? It was true - we are now in a different and more familiar world.
The issue right now, however, is exactly which part of this world we'll see. Right now we have a place to stay tonight in Helsinki and that is the full extent of our future plans. Before us lies the whole of Europe and where we'll go next depends on which hour you ask us. Currently, we're considering at trip to Finnish Lapland - inside the Artic Circle. From there, maybe Sweden and/or Estonia and Latvia.
