23rd of September. Finland again.
Leave the hostel to get to the post office when it opens at 10. Get there and yes they have my parcel. A quick ride to the port to get checked in for the 12 o’clock ferry. I arrive in Helsinki and struggle to leave. It was a pain on the way in at least then all I had to do was follow signs for Centrum. But now I have to link suburbs up. This is not helped by road works blocking cycle paths meaning detours. But after an hour and half I cover the 12km and am out of town. I need to cover some distance before sundown as I only have one day to get to the border. At 60km I call it a day as the light starts to fade.
