day 01: the arrival (0 comments)
after spending the night in munich at zombiequeen's (aka karo) aunt and uncle, we got a ride to the airport by them. there we bought a bottle of wine at the duty free shop for my godfather, which we will hopefully meet later in stockholm. the bottle of course got sealed in a transparent bag with special labels to prevent an act of terror. after the duty free shop we went to the gate where we were awaited to get on the plane. it seems we were a little late since they already announced a "very last and urgent" call for us. in fact it was the first call, i'm sure because whenever there was a call i was listening very carefully. but anyway, we hurried to get on the plane, which then had delay anyway because they were having troubles with loading the luggage. oh well. about three hours later we arrived at helsinki, again with a little delay since the landing lane was flooded due to heavy rain showers, and so the plane had to fly a round over the airport. for the first time ever there was someone waiting for me with a sign with my name on at the airport in the arrival hall! ok, finally i'm important - yuhu. it was the girl from the car rental company, called anna-maria, that fetched us there and drove us to the headquarter where we saw a fine video with a crash course on how to maintain and operate the camper that will be our home for the next three weeks. the instructions had strong visual support by a finnish girl - uh, she was blond and tall. one could definitely see she had great fun at the film shooting (or maybe she was just drunk)! thoroughly and well instructed we hopped on the camper, started the engine and drove to our first camping site where we parked our camper and took the metro to the capital of finland, namely helsinki. an absolutely beautiful, but small town with loads of parks and green areas. the strange thing about helsinki was, that there were absolutely no people on the streets, there were plenty of free parking lots and almost no cars (except for taxis) driving on the streets. and i'm talking about saturday evening/night on a warm, nice summer day. it almost felt like walking through a ghost-town. on our way home we passed by a super market (at approximately 22:30). quite exhausted we went to bed for our first night in a camper at about 00:30. fortunately we could keep out the lights with sunblinds, since it was still light outside - comparable to 21:00 in austria.
