A Relaxing Voyage Past the Fjords

Day 08 /// Sweden and Finland

Least Bugs on the Windscreen of the Trip: Finland
Most Peaceful Day of the Trip: Sweden

Day eight was another hard traveling day with no scheduled interviews. After spending some time in the morning exploring Stockholm, we drove the minis onto yet another ferry, this one bound for Finland. The three-hour ferry ride gave us one of our longest stretches awake but out of the cars, as we relaxed and interacted with other ferry passengers while enjoying the beautiful weather that made up for the previous day’s deluge. As the mostly empty ferry passed through fjords with their thousands of tiny islands, the team captured some amazing photographs.


After arriving in Finland, we had a few hours’ drive to the capital, Helsinki. Nigel was very strongly struck — after over a week of periodic stops to clean graveyards of bugs off the windshields of the Minis — to not observe any bugs whatsoever in Finland.
