Permit me to skip about half a day of our Nordics4 48 hour challenge to walk you through the brilliant Finnish city of Helsinki. Needless to say, I will go back and let you know what we got up to in the night after our evening of ‘treasure hunting’ in Helsinki but I just got too impatient to wait any longer to show you these photos.

Helsinki is such a great city and even more so when the sun is shining, like it did the very next morning. Thankfully, we had a little bit of time to spare before the next stop on our Nordic 48 hour challenge so we hotfooted it (and by that, I mean we caught the tram) from our hotel –Hotel Scandic Paasi right into the city centre – i.e. Helsinki Cathedral (which became a symbol of sorts to us that we were smack in the centre). In retrospect, I’m not sure why we took the tram – it was a very short 8 minute walk from the hotel (4 minutes if you walk like Lloyd) but hey ho…

Here’s a little tour through Helsinki via (a lot of) photos I took that morning…
