    Sounds like fun. The colors are beautiful in your pictures. I don’t know I could do a bike tour that late, but White Nights are pretty cool to experience (as a tourist). #citytripping

    I adored Helsinki and with 2 full days there, it wasn’t NEARLY enough! I’d go back in a flash! You were lucky to have the long days and nights! #CityTripping
