Kicking Back, Being Slack in Finland!

I made it to Finland without much trouble. The ferry crossing was extremely boring and it was full of non english speaking truckies and retired german tourists. There was very little conversation for me. There were a couple of young american girls that stood out from the crowd like me though. Spoke to them a bit but they had just finished 6 months of Bible study in Austria so there was little in common... The weather was good and the sea was very calm the whole crossing. Very boring, very uneventful boat ride across the Baltic.

Reached Hanko 40 mins late. Which meant I had to wait longer for the train to Karjaa. Eventually made it into Helsinki about midday. Hung around the station for an hour and headed for Tampere. Travis (my cousin) was waiting at the platform and all has been good since then. Walked around the town a bit and then headed here a little bit outside of Tampere about 50mins walk apparently (have only caught the bus so far). That was Thursday.

Friday we did nothing until the afternoon when we went into town to do some shopping and get dinner at a danish place. The weekend was nice and slack. We had a bbq and played a couple rounds of Carcassonne. Other then that its just been kicking back slacking off either on the computer or infront of the TV.

Today I might acctually do something. I can borrow the bike and take a ride so I might investigte that option. See if I can make my way to town and back.
