Subject: Re: Finland
We are traveling from Paris to Helsinki July 27th, meeting a group, flying to Ivolo and motor coach to Kirkenes to board Finnish ship, Regina Christina for ten days to Archangel, Murmansk continuing on to complete in Bergen. What is the weather generally like - how warm and do I need really warm clothes? Will a polartec jacket, windbreaker and warm sweater (with silk thermals) do it? I live in Palm Springs and the going temperature is over 100-115c! Since we will be returning to Paris and on to Normandy we are trying to pack light but smart! Has anyone heard of the CASTILLE hotel in the 1st district of Paris ( near the Louve? Also recommended (not to touristy and medium fun restaurants in this area. Thank you, Darlene
