So, back to the Helsinki trip: we're leaving on January 7th and we'll be back on January 9th. We did compare three different types of transportation: bus, train, and plane. We decided to go by plane 'coz going by train and bus takes a LONG time (10-15 hours one way) and the cost aren't that much of a different anyway (esp. if you calculate the time difference - going by plane only takes about 3 hours both ways).
I think I'm going to buy a one-day Helsinki Card so that we don't have to pay by cash whenever we get on a tram or bus or metro there. It is valid for 24 hours and usually when buying the card you get some interesting offers: like getting a discount to go to a museum or something like that. I just read the other day that we can buy the cards online and then when we arrive at the airport we can grab them from one of their representatives in the airport.
While browsing online, I really liked the fact that there's even this online Reittiopas (route guide) where I can just put "from" and "to" which addresses and what time I'll probably be going to that address from which address and when I click on the button, appears a few options on what types of transport (bus/tram/metro) I have to take to reach that address and how long the approximate time to get there. Pretty cool!!! So I know already which transports I have to take to get to the Indo Embassy from our hotel he he he...
So now I'm broke after paying for the plane tickets ha ha ha ha...today I created a few designs again at Zazzle. Here goes if you want to see them (I'm planning to create a new blog for me to post my Zazzle products 'coz I feel like I'm bombarding my readers in this diary blog of mine):
