Itinery part 1 - Blunsdon to Moscow

Our journey starts on June 12th with an 20:40 flight from Stanstead to Helsinki-Vantaa airport using the cheap, but hopefully chearful, Blue1 airline. No, we haven't heard of them either. However, we're hoping that this picture qualifies as proof of their existence. Unfortunately for us, cheap means arriving into Helsinki airport at 01:35 so let's hope those airport seats are comfy. Luckily, the airport was awarded the golden pillow in 2006 by so we are optimistic. We'll then spend a day checking out Helsinki before staying a night in the Helka Hotel, kindly paid for by the Brysons. The next day (14th June) we'll get a train to St Petersburg where we'll stay for three nights before boarding an overnight train to Moscow, arriving on the 18th. We're staying in Moscow until the 20th of June (happy birthday me), which is when we'll jump on our first Trans-Siberian train and explore the rest of Russia.

Details of which can hopefully be found in part 2 of this itinery...
