Thoughts Sans Boundaries

First glimpse of the land of thousand lakes

Posted in Uncategorized by Aditya Moorthy on January 28, 2011

Just landed in Helsinki and encountered a beautiful and perfect weather. -3 celcius, sunny and mild breeze. Last February I was at the cold land of Russia and this year it is the Nordic country. Pretty much the same gang minus couple of guys. @nat, @aish, @scott and I.

Took this picture from the plane with bright sunshine just before mid-day above the Helsinki airport. Few pleasant surprises, English is spoken by most people I’ve encountered so far, restaurants have vegetarian options and the airport is just nice, small cozy and nice coffee place to sit and browse with free Internet!

Once @aish arrives, we plan to take the bus to the harbour and a ferry to Tallinn. Two days there and then off to north Finland and hope we catch a glimpse of the northern lights.

    First rule of sighting the fair maiden: don’t mention the fair maiden.
    Second rule: there is no second rule. Just Park your butt in the frozen land and wait…
