Our fourth day in beautiful Finland brought us to the capital city of Helsinki. In the morning, we split up into several groups to explore different aspects of this vibrant and historic city and its surroundings. In the afternoon, we added new activities and repeated some so that everyone had a chance to see all the highlights. Some of us went foraging for wild foods in a nearby forest, some visited the famous fortress island of Suomenlinna, and others made the trip to the Mannerheim Museum, home of Finland’s most famous soldier and statesman.
