Our trip of a lifetime included a singing
engagement in Prague, Czech Republic
followed by visits to Helsinki, Finland
and Vienna, Austria. Unplanned bonus:
a brief layover in Frankfurt, Germany.
The new place on our bucket lists
was a visit to Helsinki and sightseeing
via bus and boat. We explored this
beautiful city and tasted so many delicious
foods. New to our taste buds were
sea buckthorn juice and lingonberry
juice. Each morning at breakfast were
small amounts of both which left us with
a feeling of well-being. Both have been
incorporated into our diets.
We allowed a few hours of shopping at
Stockman, the largest department store
in Helsinki. We viewed Finnish schools.
Our harbor tour passed by several small islands.
In winter, Helsinki has about two hours
of daylight but in summer, almost 24 hours.
People used motorized scooters up and down
hills, rode bicycles and jogged. This visit on
our bucket lists simply whetted our appetites
for more travel. What’s on your bucket list?
