    Mate - It was an ordeal I tell you! ;) After me she moved onto the guy next to me at the end of the bar. He was a horrendous toad of a man and pretty grumpy as I recall. I remember feeling bad for her but after him she walked past me and gave me a wink so I blew her a kiss and smiled and she giggled. I was 40 at the time and thought "Lewy lad - You've still got it" :D

    Helsinki is cool. I like it. The party doesn't stop over there. Stockholm is cool too but on a more stylish way.

    Yep! Couldn't agree more. I usually go in winter. Both are beautiful but I prefer Helsinki. I knew a local that showed me and the missus around. I told him I was blogging the trip so take us to places that's a bit unusual. He certainly did that and was delighted to do so. Back then I was drinking so it all got a bit messy. The Finns are very cool.

    God this is a perfect reflection on the international break. On the Burnley Post match thread, airport lounges and allegedly boring Scandinavian cities are being discussed. If ever there was evidence that the international break was shite...

    There is nothing boring about Helsinki my friend. I was actually over there on business the weekend they decided to shave off the alcohol tax to reduce the import from Estonia just across the bay. At the time (2004 i think) the finns could import as much as they needed for own consumption tax free, and needless to say those ferries were pretty loaded when arriving from Tallin. The Police in Helsinki prepared for Mayhem that weekend and I am pretty sure you must have been put away for really serious crime if you were not released to free up some space for the expected drinking fest coming up. I had to ask my colleague if they redused the tax for one weekend only but he reasurred it was a permanent deal. They sure know how to celabrate important political calls those crazy finns.

    Qantas - I have to say is pretty poor in my opinion. In fact Sydney airport is pretty poor. I have never actually been to the business lounge though. It's remarkably small weirdly. I used to live in Sydney for 3 years and go back every year with my wife to visit her family. As such we are usually just in and out - No hanging around. With any luck you'll enjoy it more though. :)

    Incidentally while we are veering massively off topic - The absolute worst was United. I flew with them from Tokyo to Honolulu - By far the worst service, lounge and flight experience I've ever had! It was so bad it actually made me scared of flying for a couple of years - I won't go into details as it's late but suffice to say a loss of cabin pressure triggered the airbags things to drop down from above us. There was massive panic and screaming. The woman in front of me fainted and the smell of vomit was horrid! All part of a travellers experience though I suppose!

    Well that doesn't bode well!

    My daughter's partner also runs a luxury travel blog covering airlines and hotels - you would like it. P.M. me if you want a link.
    BTW We take care never to book any US airline ;)
