I want to tell you in detail about our road route in Austria in July 2016, focusing on the organization of the trip and share useful sources. The themes of our trip were mountains and, first of all, we wanted to spend more time in them, capturing, however, several cities.
Helsinki - the capital of the unusual. City all the time at the hearing: in his honor named the Moscow Helsinki Group, are regularly held various summits and meetings, hosted the Olympic Games and Eurovision. The existence of Helsinki is known to all, no worse than the existence of Rome, Paris or New York, but if Rome is associated with the Colosseum, Paris with the Eiffel Tower, and New York with the Statue of Liberty, the Helsinki the average person is not associated with anything.
The distance from Tallinn to Helsinki by sea - only 80 kilometers. Overland comes exactly ten times more, in addition, across the border with Russia, not part of the Schengen area, so it was logical that 97% of passengers between the two capitals rests on the ferries.
So, the train at 9.10 we went to Lausanne, journey time - 30 minutes, and all entirely scenic views. From the station exit and begin to climb the mountain - something tells us that there. Narrow streets, winding, calm and quiet. And ATMs everywhere (this I mean that in Geneva we have not found them).
This new year, I was the first time in my life met not at home and I liked it. The idea to go to Finland happened after I managed to buy tickets for the notorious home New Year Festival Helldone, founders and one of the members of which is a group of HIM. The festival is traditionally held in the oldest rock club Helsitki - Tavastia.
What do we know about Iceland? Most likely, only that there is a volcano Eyjafjallajökull, which erupted in 2010, left for a week without air travel all over Europe and in the pronunciation of the name is the leading news from around the world trained diction. And also the fact that it is cold volcanic island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, between Europe and America.
