I lived in Finland for two years and I loved it. Leaving was difficult. Going back is always wonderful. It feels like going home.
This was a particularly special visit. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left I was spoilt rotten by my friends, especially my wonderful hostess, Marise (a fabulous cook who may soon become a fellow blogger!). My first day with its strawberry punch and champagne breakfast; pavlova and Bailey’s cocktails; saunas and girly preening, and eventual night on the tiles was the stuff of sheer indulgence!
Of course, I spent time wandering around all my old haunts in Turku and some new ones too. With its river and market square, it’s a great town to spend a summer’s day in.
On my final night we had a barbeque and just relaxed in the warm evening air. A perfect way to end my trip.
