I know it’s been forever since I’ve wrote a Weekend Blog post (or any blog post for that matter!) but I’ve had such a great week that I felt I needed to document it!

So let’s jump straight in…

After our two days in St Petersburg, we sailed to Helsinki; the capital of Finland.

As we docked quite far out of Helsinki, we had to take a shuttle bus into the city centre. We decided to take the day quite slowly after our busy two days in Russia.

I have to admit, we were feeling pretty flat after our first day in Russia. I really wasn’t looking forward to our second day there, and of course Tyrone was dreading the lunch situation happening again. We made sure we picked up some cookies on the boat just in case.

On our second day we had a different tour guide and she seemed to be a lot more understanding of Tyrone’s dietary requirements. She also turned out to be an amazing tour guide and had a real talent for making Russian history more understandable!
