In the last 15 months the piggies have traveled from the US to: Ireland, France, Italy, Tunisia, Hungary, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium, Greece, Poland, Portugal, Ukraine, the Republic of Georgia, Azerbaijan, Morocco, Spain, and finally, their final stop before returning to US soil: Finland!
Finnair offers a flight from Prague to New York with a 24 hour layover in Helsinki. So, the piggies decided to enjoy Helsinki for a few hours before returning to America.
Helsinki didn't have much to offer in terms of hostels. So they stayed in this historic Olympic Stadium.
This view on the walk to the city center was reminiscent of Norway and Sweden
oh no! Big bad wolf
It was a good evening out. They got drinks with a Finnish guy from the city and talked a bit about traveling. He let them try a liquorish tasting liquor (ironic as that sounds) and a mint flavored one. They actually liked the liquors one better despite usually not liking liquorish and loving mint but the mint liquor tasted too reminiscent of an incident sophomore year of college....
The next morning was the morning of the trip back. Nervous but excited to see friends and family after so long away, the piggies packed their things and said goodbye to Europe. For now....
