Summer in Lahti

My boys and I are very lucky and so grateful that we could travel to Finland, where my hubby is from. The city is Lahti, southern part of Finland, about 100 kilometres north-east of the capital Helsinki. It really is beautiful city.

The world famous ski jump.

Lahti Town Hall

Market place

The midnight sun

The lake, sauna, and the pine and birch trees


Man-made bird nest

Cute squirell

The blue berries

For me personally, as I grew up in a tropical country, this whole summer experience was just mind-blowing. The berry picking, mushroom picking, swimming in the lake, fishing, sauna, and the midnight sun. It was just gorgeous. Thanks again to Steve's family and friends (Vaari, Terhi mummu, Aili mummu, Siru and Seppo, Ninni and family, Pia and family, Ulla and Hannu, Jyri and Camilla and Alexandra, Timo and family, Ollie, and Kari).
