    Hello,
    I guess you're leaving from Helsinki? If not, check out where the long distance buses have their stops - maybe they're even near you and you don't need to come to the centre of Helsinki where the buses leave.
    Also, the train goes for sure through Leppavaara in Espoo. You can board the train there.
    The long distance buses leave in a place called KAMPPI in Helsinki centre - simply go down the escalator OPPOSITE the yellow escalator (that goes to the underground/metro). You are there where all the buses are.
    You can buy something to eat in a small kiosk in the same area or above inside KAMPPI.
    You can buy the ticket inside the bus or in advance in the ticket office that is located in KAMPPI (again) next to the market ANTTILA (if you need shampoos etc that is a good place to buy them.)
    Enjoy Turku and Finland.
    Check the www.matkahuolto.fi for bus timetables and www.vr.fi for trains.
    all the best,
    Soili, a middle-aged woman in the south of Finland
