Sadly there was not much to do in Kittilä, it actually reminded me of those towns out in the Midwest that mainly exist for gas stations and food for people traveling through.... one blink and its gone. We had a leisurely meal in one of the only restaurants we saw. Luckily it was pizza, which is generally easy to understand what is what. Though the Finnish must love pineapple, because out of there 25 flavors of pizza at least 5 of them had pineapple on it.

So we had just about 90 mins while in Helsinki to get food, get to our next gate and make hotel arrangements for the next few days..... yeah that was not going to happen with a laptop with low battery power (why do airports hate putting electrical outlets in convenient places). But while chowing down on a Reindeer burger (sorry Rudolph) we were able to make last minute arrangements in Frankfurt for the night.... .giving us more time to decide once we arrived.
The last leg of the trip went smoothly and we were soon back Deutschland! One marvelous thing about the hostel that we enjoy in Frankfurt is that it is close to the Main Train station, which is close to the airport... ergo it is easy to get to when traveling. After a free dinner (thank you 5 Elements Hostel) Mariko and I decided that our next stop was going to be Baden-Baden.... a spa resort town!
