Back My Trip Next


My latest excursion was to Finland where I met up with my girlfriend Cristine and stopped to visit a friend of mine, Minttu. Finland is beautiful and reminds me of the northwest, although I hear they have even more intolerable winters than Seattle.

Porvoo -- where we stayed -- is a picture perfect Finnish town. It has a big church on the hill -- where Minttu's father, Timmo, is the pastor -- a lazy river along its banks and a quaint 'old town' where you can buy Finnish candy and visit an old style toy shop. Other than that there are plenty of bars -- including one floating on the previously mentioned river -- that can keep you busy if you ever get bored, needless to say, we had a great time!
