The grand summer 2012 tour of Finland

For the first time in my life I took 4 straight weeks of holiday during the summer, and for most of that we stayed in Finland. We visited Porvoo, Nummi-Pusula, Parikkala and Nauvo, so one can say it was a grand tour of south, east and west of the country. The weather was mostly rainy, but it was still a great holiday. The pictures, as usual, in Flickr.

Unbeknownst to me before I moved to Finland, lakes can also have beaches 😉
Nothing else to do in the train
In long train rides you will find plenty of lonely pensive males in the bar drinking beer and watching the landscape go by.
