I am enjoying my time in Helsinki, however I have a few questions...
Trams: all of the brochures and visitor guides refer to machines where one can purchase a tram ticket but no where did we find a map or list of machine locations. Is there such a thing and if so can you share where they are? We ended up buying a one day ticket for 7 euros at the visitor center because we walked around for 30 minutes searching for a machine and we only needed a one hour pass.
Speaking of tickets, it did not seem that everyone boarding a tram even had a ticket or pass. Is this something that is not really enforced?
Also, we purchased another ticket to travel to Suomenlinna, but is it true that my one day travel pass would have gotten me there if I had known this? I am thinking there is a city run ferry as well as a private one?
Now a question on tipping at restaurants: everything I read ahead of my trip stated that tips are not expected in Finland, however we encountered credit card slips that had a line for writing in a tip, much like the ones in the States. Can you clarify the tipping procedure here?
