Heading South

DSC00875

The weather has become autumnal in Finland, their very short summer is over and it is time for us to start heading south. We dallied in Helsinki for a few days. It has a very different feel to Stockholm, it feels more laid back and less aspirational. The cycle routes are brilliant with great routes into the centre and cycle paths all through the city. The routes are not well signed but there is an excellent free map available so you can work out where to go.
