The overnight ferry to Helsinki left Stockholm at 4:30 in the afternoon and was a beautiful journey through the islands just off the coast. It was dark by the time were out on open water, then landed in Helsinki at 10:30 the next morning. We walked through the markets and found a great bakery/coffee shop to sit for a couple of hours, make our sightseeing plan, and wait until we could check-in to our room. Like Stockholm, it was a very clean and friendly city. I loved shopping at Marimekko!
