Bond Speedboat London

Dreamed of living like James Bond in London?

Bond is officially back! Spectre looks set to be one of the biggest Bond films in history. But alongside Daniel Craig’s big screen return is another important co-star. The heart and soul of the 007 franchise – London. Proudly synonymous with Bond, London has been the backdrop for some of 007’s most epic action sequences featuring cars, helicopters and speedboats.

Visiting Helsinki, Finland

Helsinki Bikes

Find out what it’s really like to visit Helsinki in Finland.

A very grand overnight cruise transported our Busabout group from Stockholm to Helsinki. 41 EUR gained us a two-hour feast in the Grand Buffet (including wine). We gorged on everything from smoked salmon, to roast beef to chocolate mousse! Delicious! After dinner, we checked out the on-board entertainment, before dancing the night away in the nightclub!

On arrival in Helsinki there were a few sore heads, but with little over 24 hours there, we were all keen to explore the city.

Being so fond of Stockholm, I expected to love Helsinki too, but it had a very different vibe. As most of the city burned down in 1801, it was redesigned from scratch in a Neo-Classical style – full of big boulevards and grand buildings.

One of my favourite discoveries was Signora Delizia – a cute Italian café in Katajanokka, just around the corner from Moomin creator Tove Jansson’s childhood home. It used to be a tobacco store, and was full of quirky charm, plus the coffee was excellent.
