Day 43

Day 43 Stockholm to Helsinki
-Tuesday August 10th

Hang the expense!! Finally booked a cabin for an over night ferry trip. I'm sure Debbie missed her airseats as we made our way to Helsinki!
I had no idea that there were so many islands between Stockholm and the Baltic - apparently there are around 30,000! (see the Google image) The ferry slowly threaded its way through the wooded islands and rocks. It actually took over four hours to reach the sea. The islands became a patchwork wilderness after the serene waterside holiday shacks disappeared into the distance. The sunset was stunning.
Pleased to say we broke some international rules and successfully smuggled a bottle of red on board!! Check the newspapers tomorrow!

Debbie weighing up whether or not she would have preferred airseats.

Visited the Globe stadium with its crawling cable cars before we left.

Late the night before - view from the 'Gondolen Tower'.
