Heat in Helsinki

When you think of Helsinki, hot does not come to mind. I arrived at 9am today and had to walk five minutes from the bus station to the Hotel Kamp, part of SPG’s Luxury Collection.

And let me tell you, it is hot! It’s supposed to get up to 90 degrees today and the sun literally does not go down. Sunrise was at 4:41AM and sunset is at 10:11PM. That’s 17.5 hours of daylight so it will be interesting to see what the nightlife is like.

For lunch I had reindeer meatballs which were rough and pretty much disgusting. And now I’m off to the fortress to see some history, i.e., go to the brewery located on the island.

From there, I probably should take a nap but I am relishing in one of the last days of warmth before the move.¬†Luckily my room came with a library, so I’ll have some books to trick me into sleep.
