The night train from Tornio arrives late morning in Helsinki – time for a lunchtime meeting with activists, and then an afternoon ferry to Tallinn, and an evening meeting with activists there.
There is no land border here, although there is the vague idea to tunnel between Helsinki and Tallinn so as to connect Finland to Rail Baltica, something I will examine in discussions in both cities. The only way to do this part of the trip on land would be to route via Russia – and that is politically impossible, so was not considered.
