Return to Helsinki

DSC02550

Four weeks ago I walked out of an airport into what felt like an oven. Yesterday I got off a plane and walked into a fridge. In the first case I was in Abu Dhabi, but this week I’m in Helsinki.

I’m over here for the week with work but came over a day early so that I could have a look around. I’ve been here before, a short trip almost exactly three years ago (time flies!) when I also managed to tag a day on to the trip.

Being November it was going dark by the time I left the airport at 4 in the afternoon. But after checking into my hotel in the centre of the city I went for a wander and managed to take a few photos.
