I hope dear reader, that your winter is going to be as magical as mine is, and my advice to you at the beginning of the year is to do whatever you want as long as it is something you like, and with regards to the rest of the things…
It was horror all those years, at least this is how I perceived them at that fragile age, to the amusement of all the grown-ups around me which were so happy that the year is finally over.
It was shocking to see the same style of small blocks of brick, with terraces in front of each apartment, white windows with flowerpots and paved streets, framed by trees. I was expecting a more German style than anything else.
Can you guess what is the oldest city in Finland, dear reader? This is one of the cities that impressed me the most during our summer road trip. Still no clue? Last hint: it’s also one of the most important passenger and commercial ports in the country with more than 3 million people to reach Mariahamn or Stockholm.
