PHOTO GALLERY:
Vacation in Finland Summer 2004
(Bennas, Turku, Larsmo, Jakobstad, Kokkola etc)


Page Description

This photogallery consists of many photos from the the small village of Bennas at the Western coast of Finland (about 100km from Vasa) and other photos from the nearby villages and towns like Jakobstad, Larsmo, Kokkola and Vasa. Photos were taken during my and my Finnish girlfriend vacation in end of June (1 week) and nearly 3 weeks in August 2004. I stayed with my girlfriend at her parents' house in Bennas (Pietersaari) which are all very kind and nice people. You will find some photos of the Hagglund family and many others from the peaceful green sites building around these villages or towns. There is a description about every photo and the photogallery in nicely presented with navigation buttons and photo thumbnails.

This particular page contains more general photo from Jakobstad, Larsmo and Bennas during our stay in June. The sky view photos are taken during our landing in the airport of Vasa.

This is one of my favourite photos I have taken in Jakobstad. It is a huge paper factory called Yyisa Forest. Malin's father used to work in this factory when he was about 20 years old. At that time the factory was called Schauman's factory and probably smaller.

Some farms and associated factories in the open countryside in Larsmo area. As it has been said by Malin's father, some farmers have small factories including large storage containers as shown in the photo to produce food for their farm animals, mainly for their cattle.
