My original plan was to go to Ahvenanmaa by
car for a weekend. But after a deep and more detailed research I came to a
conclusion that two days is just not enough. It’s doable in three days, but best
is to have at least four. It also means that it will need a bigger budget as
well. Long story short, plan A went right out the window. And for some unknown
reason I haven’t prepared any plan B, which is completely out of character for
a control freak like me.
Why I chose Hanko? Well, I’ve never been there before. Plain and simple.
I’ve already written posts about Jämsä and Kaipola, and if I’m not mistaken one of my first blog posts was about my experience in Nordic walking here. And in those posts, I highlighted my favourite places in Kaipola, Pitkävuori and lake Päijänne.
Kotka has been on my Finnish Bucket list for quite some time. I’ve been there only once, back in February of 2013. But it was a short visit and I hardly saw anything. Yet I’ve heard many positive things about this city, and I desperately wanted to come here again, preferably in the summertime and find out whether it is as beautiful as people describe.
“To visit Tenerife and not to see the Mount Teide is like to come to Rome with no intention of seeing the Colosseum”, that’s what I thought when I was checking Tenerife travel brochure in the morning. So, on the last day of our vacation we finally went to see the famous Peak up-close. Spoiler alert: best decision ever!
Originally, I was planning to write a post about the things I like to do in Finland in the summertime. But as soon as I started making the list, I realized that it will take me forever to put it all together. Finland is a big country and there are simply too many places to write about in one post. That is why I’ve decided to divide it in few parts.
There are three Tallink hotels in Tallinn: Tallink Spa & Conference Hotel, Tallink City Hotel and Tallink Express Hotel. I’ve stayed in all of them more than once. And in this post I would like to share my accommodation experience.
The weather was gloomy, and there was not much to do within the four walls, so I thought it might be the perfect time for a road trip adventure. And when you live in Finland it’s easy to arrange. All I needed was a car and a driver. Luckily, I had both.
