In the 1860s my great x 3 grandfather August Grandell took a ship from Abo (which is now more common ally known as Turku, Finland) he got to Australia and jumped ship.
In 2014 Mum & me took the overnight Viking Line ferry from Turku instead of jumping ship we disembarked the ship in Stockholm.

Goodbye Finland.....we love you
Before we boarded the boat we spent time exploring the Turku city centre mostly by foot, there was the Market Hall, the Cathedral, the river, hiking to find a windmill, laughing at crazy yoga statues, taking a tour of the city by a road train (train that goes on the road, just in case you thought we were in a truck), steps & more steps.
