Finland

A brief visit to Finland, to "tick off" a new country and to provide an unusual route into the following week's PTG trip to Estonia. I flew from Manchester to Helsinki, and got two buses to the end of the suburban branch at Vantaankoski. I was staying at the Holiday Inn at Ruoholahti West, so used the metro to get there. Later I did some tram routes and had a wander around. Next morning I caught the ferry to Tallinn.
