Less than 24hrs in, and despite all our careful planning, we've already discovered something we need but don't have - Turns out hostels don't always have cups. We've managed to source milk, sugar and tea bags, and the kitchen even has a kettle, but there are no cups.
We're now 1200 miles(ish) from home as the crow flies, but it doesn't really feel it yet. Finland seems to be a lot like England so far, and everyone speaks fluent English. Probably a good place to start then, as we're easing ourselves into it.
