Leaving the Nordics

Finally the day has arrived – we are going Thailand! It’s been a long fall but at the same time time has just flown by and all of a sudden we are going on vacation! We started the day with a nice early morning run. Although it was approximately 6 degrees, moist and with a bite of cold in the wind it was really nice to run.
We had a very nice and good breakfast at Espresso House with Fredde’s parents before they waved us off at the train station.

We got a nice offer a couple of weeks ago to upgrade to business class between Helsinki and Bangkok which we after a lot of consideration finally took. There’s a first time for everything and we doubt we will ever get a chance to fly business again…
Even though we only had half an hour to spare in Helsinki we had to try out the lounge! It was very nice 🙂
 It was a wonderful and completely different experience to fly business class. We got a nice and warm welcome with champagne and got served a 3 course meal with various excellent wines to choose from.    
After finishing of “How to train your dragon 2” we tried to get some sleep. It was great with with flat bed seats but at 1.87m it was still a little cramped. Although we didn’t really fall asleep we managed to get 5 to 6 hours of rest/slumber which made us feel more or less rested by the time breakfast was served. Outside we could watch a gorgeous sunrise.
