As the holiday draws to a close, today has been spent visiting anywhere that’s been missed out or places worth a second look. Lunch was taken in Helsinki’s fabulous old market and took the form of thick, hearty soup with crusty bread.
Rather than tire our already weary feet, we got a day travel ticket and did a few laps of the city centre by tram. This ticket is also valid on the Suomenlinna ferry, so we went back there and had cakes at Cafe Piper, which just about overlooks the sea.
On the way home I indulged myself and tried a Hesburger for the first time. It’s basically a knock-off of a Big Mac, but these burger bars are all over the place here, so I was a little curious. Walking in and seeing a man wearing half of his salad in his beard startled me, but I persisted. Just like it’s American cousin, after eating my Hesburger, I was hungry again in 5 minutes time.
