Back in 2015, Jane and I went to Finland for the first time. I’ve often said that Scandinavia is a lot like Canada (and Alaska) with much of the same geography, if not the same scale. We set out from Denmark and caught the ferry to Sweden to drive to Stockholm for the ferry to Helsinki. If you’re reading this blog, you’re about to join us. 😉
The Swedish ferry was no bother. We’ve sailed on it a few times and even gotten used to waking up in the cabin when everyone else has gone! And then driving off for breakfast. I’m pretty sure this lake is Vättern in Sweden.
We can be a bit too relaxed, though. And we kind of, sort of, totally missed the ferry to Finland! We just watched as it sailed without us! In my defence there was lots of road works and a tonne of traffic in Stockholm that day. But still, we failed to think of the distance and hours needed to get there. Eight, I think?
All was well though, and we caught the next ferry to Turku, rather than Helsinki as planned. Relief and smiles all round!
