The perfect week in Helsinki!
I just had an amazing week. I took a plane to Helsinki to meet my girlfriend. After some research I found a flight for only €35 (and I had Free Wi-Fi onboard!!). My plane arrived one hour earlier than the plane of my girlfriend, so I had the time to already arrange the keys of our apartment and wait in the arrival-hall with a flower and a paper with her name :p
We had a studio in the center of Helsinki from ‘Citykoti Downtown Apartments’ (about one hour driving from the airport). It was a very very good deal and I would highly recommend it if you are planning to book a room in Helsinki. We had everything from a dishwasher and washing machine to a induction-plate, Free-Wifi-Router, towels and things like a waterboiler, an iron, a toaster, fridge,… More than everything we needed (inc. a perfect location), for a very good price!
We also went to the embassy of Belgium (quite an adventure) so I could get my Visa-Passport to make sure I don’t get killed on the Grand-RUSSIA-trip in April 😀 (to St.Petersburg, Novgorod and Moscow).
Our farewell couldn’t have been better. We took the Finnair-bus to the same terminal, where we dropped her luggage, and could take our time to say goodbye. We even had our gates next to eachother (18 and 19) ! Our planes were really standing side by side. I had my flight one hour later so I could see her lift off… IF IT WASN’T TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE OFCOURSE ! I almost always had a perfect view of the plane of my girlfriend but it was standing still a few times. She texted me that there were some mechanical problems with the engine. They even drove some stairs back to the plane to get the technicians on-board. Fortunately they could fix it and her flight was only delayed about one hour. She really overcame her fears with style and I’m very proud of her.
We are already looking forward to the next visit.
Kiitos Sofie for this amazing week with you!
