Back to Helsinki

Silja Symphony in Stockholm in afternoon light:

Big tax-free shop:

Coming into Helsinki with evidence from 'the night before' arranged on the window ledge:

Viking XPRS:

Chilled dock workers:

Viking line funnels:

Princess Anastasia:

Belle Epoque Helsinki:

Me with the wonderful architect and interior designer Vuokko Ranin (Laakso), creator of so many outstanding passenger ship interiors in the 1960s-90s period:

Frozen departures from Helsinki:

Kalle made Karelian stew for dinner - and very fine it was too after a day spent mostly out in the cold:

Even Ville the cat was impressed:

Mr Kalle Id, who strangely prefers eating kitchen paper to Karelian stew. Top bloke and everything, but really he does have some odd habits like that.
