It’s Never All Gonna Be Smooth Sailing, Is It?! Finndian Update Part 2

We had another fun filled day today, after a very restless night.

Trying to sleep as a family in one bedroom in a hotel is ever easy, but when one member comes in slightly sozzled from a great night out, the ensuing bumping around, and settling down is guaranteed to wake the little people up!

There I was requesting Hubby Dearest to be quiet, and Lil Man woke up, worried we were arguing, and getting divorced! After reassuring him, we settled down, to hear a little ‘poot’ and Lil Princess giggling and saying ” It was only me!”

All this at 3am!

It had been planned that we would visit the Helsinki Zoo today that requires a ferry trip, as the zoo is on an island. We went, but all like zombies!

The whole family crew was tired, as even my nephew had decided it would be a great idea to wake at 6am, instead of 8am.

But the trip was fun, and the zoo was great, even though a nesting Canadian goose decided to attack me, as I rummaged in my bag to get a camera out! It pecked the top of my head, and I was in a little shock for a while!

But we saw lions, tigers, leopards, monkeys, reindeer, emus and wallabies, bears and all other animals! The kids were tired, but they had fun. It was another hot day reaching over 23 degrees celsius today!

After we had eaten a quiet family dinner, Lil Princess was sick. Wonderful!

Not sure if it was something she ate, a bug, or heat stroke!

But we came back to the hotel and settled down for an early night. Then she was quietly sick again, in her bed! It was lucky I woke, what if she’d choked on her own vomit?!

The Hotel staff were great and changed all the bedlinen. But it means that I was wide awake again, so here I am, on my 3rd post of the night! Oh well, at least I caught up on my challenges!

We are meant to be going on a speedboat ride tomorrow… but it may not be all of us going, with my Lil girl feeling how she is. And I need to be up at 5am to check in online for our return flight!

I can already feel the yawns….

    23 C is hot here in Scandinavia. We have 24 C now and it’s almost 9 pm. That’s hot for being Sweden. I hope you all will be fine and that you will carry good memories from Finland.

    What if I say Sun touched 46 degrees here this may, would it make you feel a little calm? (at 23). BTW take care of lil princess. 🙂

    Hey, Sis! I hope, Lil Princess is already fine again. It is even worse when they get sick on vacation! But you really don’t waste a single minute! Have the picture of the zombie convoy in my head… oh, well! But I am sure you enjoy the time because you smile anyway 😉😘

    Oh, no, Ritu! So sorry to hear! I hate it when the kids are sick, especially when they are sick while we are away. Although all the cleaning up and washing is done by the staff of the hotel I do feel more comfortable being at home with them if they are unwell… Hope your little princess feels much better and that you all get some well deserved rest. Keep enjoying the trip!

      Thanks Sandra.
      Me and my little lady stayed back this morning to rest, the rest have gone on a speedboat ride. It is a shame as she would have enjoyed it, but we are so tired… Still. She seems brighter today ☺️

        She needs that rest for sure and you too. I missed out on a beautiful hike in Hawaii once because my little girl was sick. But you know what: Spending that time with her was so good too. She was so sad that she couldn’t go… but we made it “fun” too, cuddled a lot and watched movies 😉
