Highlights of a day in Helsinki, Finland while on a family cruise in Northern Europe.
I have just posted a trip report on the day that we spent in Stockholm, Sweden while on a Baltic cruise in the summer of 2009. We had only one day to explore the city so we had to make some hard decisions about what we could see in such a short period of time. What we discovered is that Stockholm is a strikingly beautiful capital city that warrants a much longer visit to fully appreciate everything that it has to offer.

As the days lengthen and the temperature rises, our thoughts begin to turn to spring and the many spring festivals that celebrate the coming season. The Canadian Tulip Festival is one such celebration which will be held in Ottawa, Canada from May 6-23, 2011. The Canadian Tulip Festival is now in its 59th year and has grown to become the largest Tulip Festival in the world.
I have posted a trip report about the time that we spent in Copenhagen, Denmark during our 2009 summer vacation. We spent three days in the city prior to leaving on a 10 day Baltic cruise and one day post-cruise. Copenhagen is a vibrant capital city that provided a wonderful introduction to Europe for my children. The central part of Copenhagen is compact and easy to navigate on foot and there is a wide range of activities available to suit any family from palaces to amusement parks to canal cruises.
