My Xmas Holidays in Stockholm + Bennas - 2002/03


Page Description

Here are many photos from my wonderful Christmas 2002 and New Year 2003 holiday together with my endless love girlfriend (Malin) in Sweden (Marsta & Stockholm) and Finland (Bennas). For the first time in my life I experienced snow, and also made a personal record - the coldest temperature my body ever had been to (= -32C !) Despite the temperature it was a beautiful Xmas holiday, and the kindness and warmth of the people here cancels every cold

In this page you will find some sceneries of Bennas during this cold month of late December. Bennas is about 100km North of Vaasa and in the map it is same longitudinal level with south of Iceland.

Bennas train station front door. Bennas is the name of the village in Swedish, while Pannainen is the same name in Finish. Completely different names even if it is a village name. Another example of village names: Uusikaarlepyy and Nykarleby... guess which of them is the Finish name?

Photo taken from inside Malin's house. Houses are well separated from one another, with plenty of space, large gardens around the house and trees everywhere. Very RARE in Malta !!!

Sunshine at last!!! It was sunny only for 2 days from 11 days I stayed in Bennas. You might think the sun is setting soon, and that it is about 4pm, but it was just 1:30pm. The sun rises at about 10:00am and sets about 3:00 here in Bennas.
