PHOTO GALLERY:
Our wedding vacation in several towns and villages in Finland
June / July 2005


Page Description

This photogallery consists of many photos taken during my and Malin's 5-week wedding vacation in Finland and Baltic countries starting from the 17th of June to the 23rd of July. We got married on the 25th of June 2005 in Pedersore church, Jakobstad, Finland. We spent the first 2 weeks visiting several towns and villages in Finland such as Larsmo coast (summer cottage), Jakobstad, Purmo, Vaasa, Kokkola, and Bennas (Malin's father house). The next 2 weeks we spent the honeymoon in Estonia and Latvia, while the last week we stayed part in Bennas and part in Stockholm at malin's aunt. This photo gallery do not include photos from the wedding, Estonia and Latvia, since these are found in seperate web photo-galleries. However in this photogallery there are photos taken during our voyage with the car from Bennas to Helsinki via Tampere, and back way home from Helsinki to Bennas via Jyvaskyla.

We spent an afternoon in the village of Purmo some 40km away from Bennas. One of the attraction sites is Fagerbacka which consists a group of 4 or 5 cottages which where conserved from several decades of years ago so as to have an idea of how life was in the villages long time ago. This photo shows an old sledge and horse cabin.

Another important site in the village of purmo is this large boulder which is known as Lostenen (=the stone of the Lynx). Large boulders are not common in Forest areas in Finland, so this large boulder is considered an attraction by Finns. Actually I never seen a larger rock than this in whole Finland. When you climb up the boulder you reach the level of the tree tops.
