Trip to Geiranger, Norway (Part 1/3 – Savonlinna to Geiranger)

Finns are quite precise about the snow, since they have experienced it more than many other countries (yes, it’s an understatement). This one […]

Saturday, October 6th, 2007

I was to talk about the islands of Suomenlinna, with references to history, and precise description of the place, but I realized that Wikipedia does it much better than me :) Instead, I’ll post a few pictures, and confirm that this is quite a popular place, even for Finns. The place is ideal for a […]
