PHOTO GALLERY:
FINLAND : Bennas, Larsmo and Jakobstad
June 2003


Page Description

This photo gallery consists of my holiday in Finland in June 2003 where I visited my girlfriend Malin who was living there with her parents. She was living there temporarily, until we would travel to Malta after this holiday and live together at my house. We went to several nearby villages and towns including Bennas (her parents house) , Larsmo (their summer cottage), Jakobstad, Vasa, and Stockholm (last day).

In this page there are photos taken from Bennas (called Panainen in Finnish), the village where Malin have grown and lived up to about 16yrs where then she left to study in Jakobstad and Vaasa. Their parents still live there and I stayed with Malin and her parents' house during this holiday. Like many villages around here, Bennas is a quite, simple village with many space and forests and not overcrowded with people or cars, or large building or shopping complexes. There is also a Railway station which goes down to Helsinki and other important cities in FInland.

Bennas Railway Station in Summer. It looks very different in Winter as you can see from the other photogallery (Xmas in Bennas). This is very near to Malin's parents' house and it is a good advantage becasue we can go to many places in Finland with train, such as Helsinki, Obu and Vasa.

The railway itself - long as far as your eyes can reach. Was completely deserted at that time.
