Thought for the day…” Happiness is not a destination, it is a way of life”.
A photo from the Baltic Sea today and the Tallink Galaxy boat, which travels between Turku, Finland and Stockholm, Sweden. Although originally owned by Silja Line, the company was taken over by the Estonian Tallink Line. Although once it was a pleasant way to cross the Baltic, now prices are higher, and customer service lower. And if you are onboard with a lot of drunk Swedish or Finnish passengers (they go mad on buying the tax-free onboard) then the crossing can be far from pleasant. The boat is seen here heading towards Stockholm, near Oxdjupet,.
ALL PHOTOS ON THIS SITE ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.
Thought for the day…” Stop being afraid of what COULD go wrong, and focus on what COULD go right”
” Don’t Allow yesterday to spend too much of today “.
Did you know that divorce is legal in the world except for the Philippines and Vatican city. And did you know that the cashew is in reality a seed. Native to Brazil, the cashew is the seed of a cashew apple and contains a poison in its shell similar to poison ivy. So the shell has to be removed before it can be sold. And more trivia….The Vatican Bank is the world’s only bank that allows ATM users to perform transactions in Latin. Interestingly, Radio Finland broadcasts a program in the latin language as well. That leads nicely to the photo of the day, the Tallink Silja Symphony ferry seen here in the ice in Helsinki harbour, Finland. When new, it was the largest passenger ferry in the world, weighing in at over 58 000 tons. It was photographed here shortly before its departure overnight to Stockholm, Sweden.
