I’m going to be away for the whole next week, travelling in the home country. The weather got bad already before the trip, coincidentally on the same exact day (yesterday) that I got the last confirmation for the trip…
Our aim is to visit Asuntomessut in Heinola, some 130 km up north from Helsinki. Asuntomessut is an annual fair for homes (asunto = apartment, domicile, dwelling, flat, habitation, home, house, residence etc., and messut = fair). Maybe habitation fair could be a good enough translation.
The next thing would be finding lodging somewhere in middle Finland. Funnily enough, there are no big cities between Jyväskylä and Oulu, and that would be the best area based on distances — we are visiting Oulu on Sunday.
The rest of the week is still a bit hazy, but we are going to trek for a day in Kuusamo, if the weather is decent, pick some strawberries and attend a wedding. Very Finnish summer holiday plan.
