To Stockholm we go

Tomorrow I’ll travel to Stockholm with my family. Aapo has been talking about going into a ship (that has Moomins), and Sanna has been interested in visiting Stockholm. Thus a ferry cruise to Stockholm was a no-brainer.

The ferry trip takes one day and two nights. Sanna has reserved us a bit bigger cabin with queen size bed, and extra beds / cribs for the boys. This was my only condition for the trip…

One day in Stockholm, about eight hours, is spent (hopefully) in shops. The Swedish crown is quite low compared to Euro, thus the pricing should be good.

Midsummer (in rain)

We’ve arrived yesterday to Polvij√§rvi to celebrate midsummer within Kalliola extended family — including my parents, our family and my sister’s family. Total ten people.

Currently, the weather is not favouring us. It has been raining since last night and there is no sight of change in the near future. Thus, I and Sanna have been working while children are playing with their grandmom.

I do hope that raining would cease soonish, so we could go to the cottage, have a sauna and go to dip in the lake. The water temperature of North Carelian lakes are above the average currently, so dipping might not be that icy cold — only about 15-17C…
