Midsummer at Kaunissaari. Juhannus Kaunissaaressa

Kaunissaari (Fagerö) is island in Sipoo about 1 hour by boat from Vuosaari in Helsinki. The name of the island means 'the beautiful island' and the island is beautiful indeed. Updated information about the island you find here. I will put just pictures from our 'Juhannus trip' last weekend. We set up our tent by the sea. The Moon looked exceptionally big but my camera didn't see it, so it looks normal in the photo.

Have a nice Midsummer! Hyvää Juhannusta!

I have just came back from holiday in Poland. After more or less 10years spent in Finland I do not feel so much like being home there ... neither here. I guess many people that moved to the other country as an adult person share this strange feeling. I was thinking about voting - do I have actually right to decide about Polish issues when I do not live there myself? But I do not want to start heavy subjects right now, I would like to share photo I took from the plane yesterday evening while landing in Vantaa - SO GREEN Finland, so beautiful view.  No wonder why Finns celebrate so much these days - I wish a great Midsummer to everyone!
