Touring Europe 2014
Belgium, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland and the Aland Islands, Sweden, Denmark and England
The ferry to Finland weaved its way through the myriad islands of the Helsinki archipelago on its way to the port. Helsinki was great, a lovely waterfront city. We enjoyed a tourist trip round the harbour and the nearby islands. From Turku we took a large ferry across the Baltic Sea towards Sweden, but stopped off on the Aland Islands. Yet another ferry, then, over to Sweden and to Stockholm. There were several other lovely places to see in southern Sweden, and we stopped by the water in several little harbours and ports. However, we had to keep moving by this time. We drove quite quickly across Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands, all countries we know quite well, and crossed the Channel back to the UK in late August.
