Back when I went to Hawaii and stayed at the gorgeous Hilton hotel, I found that a substantial breakfast while travelling really saved money and helped fuel my day (full of walking, hiking, swimming, and all of the other activities I had planned. Even shopping!). When looking for hotels for my Finland trip, I was keen to pick a hotel that offered a buffet breakfast over those that didn’t. Every time, I was really happy that I had made that choice.
Not only does a good breakfast help prepare me for the day, but it also helps me wake up! (Or maybe it’s just that morning cup of tea..) It’s great to be able to get dressed, go downstairs for breakfast, and then head back to the hotel room to finish getting ready or make the firm plans on how to spend the day. Usually otherwise I try to grab some groceries (which wouldn’t work great, since none of our hotels in Finland had mini-fridges) or am stuck getting breakfast late, once out and about for the day.
The buffet breakfast at the Centro hotel in Turku was also really generous, with loads of choice for cold foods (and a few hot foods too).
Yoghurt with tasty toppings
Just a note – these photos are from SEVERAL different breakfasts at the Centro hotel in Turku – we were there for a week, and so I had lots of opportunities to take photos of what we were eating each day.
Above, yoghurt with sunflower seeds, granola with dried apple, and sour berries.
