Stranded in Helsinki.
Our train from Saint Petersburg had a five hours delay, so we missed our bus connection to Porvoo where we were going to stay. No Finish telephone chip and a bad working internet connection at the
train station, plus that it is impossible to reserve a hotel room for the same night after midnight. I walked across the street to the Holiday in which was full and was told that there where no hotel rooms available in Helsinki due to a music happening. It took a little convincing but the young lady started to look for rooms for us and came up with the Holiday Conv Ctr what is somewhat away from the center of town. We were happy to take this for us expensive but none smoking room. Upon our arrival I showed the extremely pleasant, and efficient young front desk clerk my membership and we were upgraded to a beautiful suite, something my wife really needed after our very long night travel from Russia.
