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 and Kokkola, as well from the large city of Turku (Oubu). Photos were taken during 1 week in June and nearly 3 weeks in August 2004. I stayed with my girlfriend (Malin Hagglund) and her parents' cottage in Bennas (Pietersaari) which are all very kind and nice people. You will also find some photos of the Hagglund family.

Some more photos from the Botanical Garden beside the castle. [MarZ]

These are the same 2 kittens seen earlier in June 2004 who where given birth by Malin's parents cat - Maisu. These 2 kittens where then given to the neighbours and now they are a bit more larger at about 2-3 months of age. The neighbours showed them to us for a while during our stay. The kittens where very cute and playful running on the grass and exploring the near surroundings. They were also a good example of the phrase 'copy cats' one do or go exactly as the other one.

Here I am biking through the pathways and lanes in the forrests and countrysides. The high quality roads are not steepy, straight, little traffice, wide and also designed to have bike lanes so here it is a heaven for bikers. The phot here is however taken at a path in the forrests

Something different now, a chimney of a paper factory at Jakobstad pumping out these fumes into the sky. I am sure that the fumes are well checked by Finnish authorities so that they do not emit any toxic compounds, but still it feels that it is polluting the environment.

This is taken from Malin's parent house during Malin's birthday party. The strawberry cake was baked by Malin herself (well guided by her mother Gungerd). The 'Danish buns' where also made by Malin and came very good too. Then the spongy cake at the middle was made by Gonliss (Gungerd's aunt) and they where also very good (Probably she is the best cake baker of all Pedersore) !!! Greetings to Gonliss and her husband Olaf
