Espoo & Helsinki, Finland
Our next adventure begins…finding our hotel. —- The frozen archipelago
Helsinki’s central rail station —– One of the few bus stops we landed at trying to find our way to our hotel. We finally
made it after a few hours…finally!
We tried to go to a game in Helsinki, but it was sold out..the first game all season —- 2 tickets, anyone? How can they not have any scalpers??
Here’s our room at the Radisson Inn in Espoo
Our venture to the bus stop…on our way to Helsinki —– One of the many ice rinks in Helsinki
There’s an interesting fire truck. Bright! —— On our tour through the city, but found another rink where a bunch of kids teams were playing Bandy.
Bandy appears to be a cross between ice and roller hockey with a bit of soccer. Looked fun.
It’s hard to tell, but that’s the Olympic stadium —- A soccer field next to the stadium
I’m guessing that sign says "Don’t wear a white shirt with a big red ‘X’ on it and walk out on the ice" — Downtown Helsinki
Espoo Blues vs TPS Turku
Lansiauto Arena, home of the Espoo Blues
Espoo is wearing blue, Turku white —- One player on each team was wearing a gold helmet
Mike Ribiero of the Montreal Canadiens
After a goal is scored this section of the arena goes nuts
Espoo & Turku After the game
Here I am out on the archipelago making a snow angel —- Posing in front of a buoy
I would’ve loved to have tried that, para-skiing —- A crack in the ice
