After almost seeing the sunrise the morning before I set out in the dark towards the foreshore at the south tip of Helsinki. I grabbed a tram from just outside the hotel.

It also means when you do eventually head out at a reasonable hour you have time to do tourist things before heading into the Grand Prix.Continue reading “Singapore – 2019 – Gardens by the Bay”
