Needless to say I wasn't up for much today after the fun weekend in Helsinki. A bonus of checking out for the weekend though was that an executive room with a private sauna became available. So I upgraded to that when checking back in last night. My monday night consisted of unpacking and settling in. I had dinner at the hotel and then enjoyed the sauna before bed.

Attached are a few more pictures from Helsinki to make up for my lack of writing.

If you ever visit the Ateljee Bar atop the Sokos Hotel Torni you'll realize these stairs are tricky after a bit of port wine ;)

I told you it advertised a warm tent, +18 baby! Actually it was a bit too warm for me so I sat outside, haha.

A beatiful view of the defenses standing out against the sea.

The outer walls offer an amazing view of the icy sea.
