I've looked in the timetable of the Finnish Railway and planned some stops on the way.

But I wonder:
  • Do you need to reserve a seat in the trains? Than I can't stop as many times as I wanted.
  • Do you know if there's a "ticket" for traveling multiple days? Or do I have to buy a ticket each time?

No, you don't need to reserve a seat, at least in most of trains. You can just buy the ticket from a ticketseller in the train, but you don't get a seat for sure, if all the seats are taken. I haven't heard that there would be a multiple day ticket for long-distance trains, and didn't find any information about that.

I've been looking at your dot maps, and nobody has one dot near of Helsinki. This "Porkkala" dot is possible to get on summer from Porkala Marin, by car. Are there people who are coming by car to the meeting and are willing to drive also some other EBTers to this place? By way from Helsinki to Porkkala there's also the dot of Kirkkonummi, and of course we can make a bigger trip if we will. :)

The Porkkala dot is already on my "to do" list, but it's probably the first one I visit when in Finland. I'll return my car before the meeting, so I won't be able to take people there.

1 and 2 cent coins are not in use in Finland. I can still try to get you those from a bank.

How many of you are coming already on Friday? And what time?

We can of course eat together also on Friday. How many of you would like to attend?

Another choice is just a bar visit in the evening.


I thought about some place in the middle centrum for the meeting place of Saturday. Have to think what would be the best place to meet, but somewhere in the Kamppi area.

On Saturday we will meet at 10 am.

Okay, one good place for Friday in the middle centrum would be Vltava (https://www.raflaamo.fi/en/helsinki/vlt ... nuId=46718). It's located next to the main railway station. It's not possible to make a reservation there on Fridays, but I think that there'll be space for us.

Some suggetsions, either at the plaza in front of Kamppi shopping center/terminal or the traditional meetingplace beneath the clock of Stockmann.
