DAY 80 - AUG 29 - HELSINKI to VANTAA
I gave Helsinki a very short look on the day I came in and a little more on the next day when I left. It really is a very beautiful and vibrant city and deserved more of my attention. I may be getting burnt out on being a tourist. The highlight of my short visit was the humongous Helsinki Cathedral which I didn't have the energy to walk up a lot of steps and go in to see.
I was contemplating a visit to Saint Petersburg which involved a very long boat trip which I really didn't fancy. Then I was thinking about a big loop around southern Finland, but after looking at potential lodging, I wasn't excited.
Yup, definitely burnt out, so I booked an earlier flight home and a 5 night stay at a nice apartment in Vantaa, a short distance from the airport.
