Stephen’s parents came to visit us over the last few weeks, and it was great seeing them! We spent a few days around Rauma, then took the ferry to Stockholm, and ended our trip with a couple of days in Helsinki. So much to see, so little time!
One afternoon, I went out to the Woodland Cemetery, a UNESCO site. It was lovely, but it was still a cemetery – I didn’t see why it deserved World Heritage status. The cemetery was split by a road, or so I thought. When I crossed the road to the other side, I found the actual Woodland Cemetery. I have no idea which cemetery I was at to begin with!
While in Helsinki, we went to Suomenlinna (the fortress island off the coast), as well as Seurasaari (the open-air museum). My back was absolutely killing me, so I left the camera at the hotel for the most part while we were there. I did take the obligatory photos of the Cathedral, though:
Part 2 of the family vacation will come in a couple of weeks, when my mom comes for a visit. So excited!
