Going to the beach in Helsinki - temperature: 1 ºC

March/April 2014

I must confess - Helsinki is still one of my favorite layovers in Europe... Even if the weather is a little bit hostile for a Mediterranean guy.

There are many sights and places of interest in Helsinki and one of them is the wonderful Temppeliaukio Kirkko - Church of the Rock.



Eating out at Ravintola Zetor is a wonderful experience and a nice opportunity to "taste" the spirit of Finnish countryside.

Despite the cold temperatures, the sun was shining most of the time. For my surprise there is a beach with lots of sand in Helsinki and it looks very nice. Even with a temperature of 1 ºC we went to see the beach!

We also saw many aircraft on approach to Vantaa Airport passing over the beach - including this Finnair's A330.

For our return to Lisbon, we had CS-TQD "Eugénio de Andrade".
