Worldcon 2017 Trip Day 5: Our Day At Sea

This trip on the Finnstar has been very nice. Comfortable bed in a cabin that is more efficiently arranged than our hotel room in Hamburg, good food — and I say this as someone who partakes of quality hotel buffets in Reno regularly — and good company with our fellow fans. It's been quite restful. Internet connectivity has been somewhat spotty (we knew that would be an issue), and consequently I haven't had bandwidth to put all of our photos so far online or to annotate them. I hope I manage to get that done, but experience shows that this is doubtful.

We're scheduled to arrive Helsinki tomorrow morning, disembarking about 9:30 AM. Our final meal at sea starts serving early due to the early arrival, so I anticipate getting to bed soon. Lisa and are both very happy that we arranged the trip this way. A couple of days of relatively enforced rest has been good for us. Like a vacation, even.
