Good morning from Helsinki....it seems as if we have truly carried the sun around the world with us, we have had lovely sunny days since arriving. We are off to Estonia for the day which I am very excited about.
I have so many images from Helsinki, so will upload 12 today...sorry folks but its the only way i will get through them and give you an idea of the city.
V1 is a view of the city from the harbour
V2 the Alexander 2 monument on Senate Square
V3 Uspenski Cathedral
V13 is for Jukka (kuvailija) from Finland ....What is the significance of all the tortoise's dotted around the walkways in Helsinki?

A very impressive set of images of what looks like a very beautiful city.
The light has been much kinder to you than in St.Petersburg.
I don't know much about Finland at all so this is very educational.
This isn't a holiday choice for many people - so very interesting.
Hope the rest of your holiday is great.

The TV programme "Wish You Were Here" with Judith Chambers comes to mind Coleen. Another superb set of travel photographs, each worthy of a vote. I particularly like image number one and ten. The sense of scale an proportion in image number ten is staggering.
