PHOTO GALLERY:
Summer Vacation in Finland (2004)
Bennas, Vasa, Larsmo, Jakobstad, and Kokkola


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.

This particular page contains some more photos from the large town of Vasa, where there are many students since of the various colleges and universities found here. [MarZ]

Another photo from the roof of the water tower showing the village of Vasa. This is wide view of the southern area of Vasa showing several apartments, flats, and the pale yellow warehouses complex with the kotipizza logo. There is also a small/medium sized lake, ideal for a refreshing bath, or as Malin used to do, go jogging around. Also visible are tall chimneys (probably some important factory) station tower and historical large noble houses. Note also how many trees there are in street among the building.

After descending back the stairs from the top of the water tower, I and Malin took a warm coffee and portions of fruit cake from this well suited cafeteria at the base of the tower. The owner dived down under the desk on taking the photo. Although his old age he was very fast becasue I did not note that he did hid himself, when I looked back (after the photo) he was standing there as cool as a cucumber.

This is a wonderful photo of Malin and me standing before the back part of the large church of Vasa. The sun was best for photo from this back side of the church, which after all it is also beautiful as or even more from the front view of the church where there is the main door an the tall tower. The church is in the middle of park-like area covered with evenly cut moan, some trees and several benches to rest and meditate!.

Some kids playing, tossing themselves, jumping and having fun in this play room of a buffet pizza+pasta type restaurant. For 8 Euros you will have a buffet of Salad (big variety), pasta, pizza, soup, tea, chocolate, coffee, soft drinks, water, and ice cream. This is what I call non expensive good food, there is no place in Malta with this service at that price. So Finland is not that expensive if you search for a while.
