Dutch papers don't mention anything about a tour or concert in Holland yet :(
I didn´t kill myself when things went wrong
I didn´t turn to drugs or teaching
I tried to sleep, but when I couldn´t sleep
I learned to write.
I learned to write what might be read
on nights like this by one like me.

Looks like a lot of speculation has been printed in the media all over Europe.
All we can do is to be patient and hope for the best.

All of a sudden I feel as if a Holiday in Helsinki around September 2nd was planned since at least Christmas.
Anyone else with symptoms like this?

Great news! I won't be able to buy tickets on Friday, though, so hopefully there'll be a presale...

Flights booked!! London Gatwick to Helsinki with Norwegian for £120 return, incl all fees. I'd have to travel to Heathrow for a direct flight to Helsinki in any case and it's well worth the extra drive to LGW for a super cheap flight. Just hoping that the 10kg hand luggage allowance will be enough for all my thermals and waterproofs!

Hi all, hi Jarkko,

finally I managed to book flights. It is a funny combination, but the cost is only 70 euro:-)

Arrival in the 1th of September to TURKU, late evening;

2nd September (or even in the night..) heading to HELSINKI - I would be happy to join you for the sightseeing - night: CONCERT (or what :lol: )

then I'm going to TURKU where have the flight back in the evening of 4th, so I could enjoy some nature, maybe meet some collegues
and do NORDIC WALKING together.....at last FInland is the homeland of my beloved sport activity (and work, that allowed me to collect some money and follow Leonard on the road again :)

Hope to see more of you there. Love: gallina (szilvia)
