Hello my lovely readers. I think it is time I share some more of my vacation pictures with you. After the stop in Tallinn, we were on our way to Finland to visit my brother who is doing his Master's degree there at the moment. Since the ferry wasn't going directly to Turku, we decided we would have a couple of hours in Helsinki before we take the bus to Turku.
We arrived at Helsinki tired and spent hours looking for the station where our bus was to depart from. Turned out this information is only available online. Unfortunately for us, we had lost so much time we couldn't go see anything.
On the way back though, we had about 1.5 hours so we went down the street to see the Helsinki Cathedral and Upsenski Cathedral. They are both beautiful, aren't they?
It was a very long trip from Riga to Turku but we finally made it. It was quite cold the first few days but got warmer with time. Here are some of the beautiful places I visited in Turku.

I hope that looks like fun because it was. I will be posting about the different outfits I wore while on vacation soon, so stop by to see that. If you are planning to visit Finland, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Shopping can only be done until 20:00 on weekdays.
- Shopping can only be done until 18:00 on weekends.
- Most things are electronic or machine related. So do your research on where your bus departs from/ arrives etc as you may not find the help you need at the bus station.
With that been said, enjoy your weekend.
