Hello David.........Thanks for you input and great information.
Tallinn is definitely on my itinerary. Plan to get there via train
from St.Petersburg and then take the ferry back to Helsinki. Will
check out both your ferry recommendations.
Emailed the Hotelli Helka in Helsinki for availability and rates.
(Their online reservations is in Finnish!!) I am single so I don't
require much as long as it is safe. And will check out the
Queens Hotel in Stockholm. Don't know which line I will use to
get to Stockholm, the Viking or Silja. Checking out both also.
I am aware of the Tourist Visa requirements the the support
'invitation' needed. There is a Russian Consulate in Seattle.
Plan to go there this week and check it out. (I live in Issaquah, a
suburb in the foothills 18 miles east of Seattle.) Getting my
Russian visa and accomodations with invitation is my priority
since it all seems a little convoluted.
Thanks again for your help.
