One of my favourite places in the world!

Yes I love my creature comforts and I love my technology but I also love escaping back to a life that is pretty basic. For the last 10 years now, at Easter,  we have left the 'city' and headed for the country, specifically our 'summer' cottage. Now as Easter time varies we can be confronted with varying amounts of snow and a lake that may or may not be frozen. There will be no running water, frequent trips to refill the log basket, the annual Easter egg hunt and a lovely cold beer after sauna. Bliss!
Hopefully these photos will give you a little taste of our Easter!

Roll on Spring!

  1. It looks absolutely lovely! I love the idea of an Easter egg hunt in the snow!

  2. My best friend Anne is just back from three nights in Hyvinkkaa and I am very jealous. I miss going to Finland to visit her as she now lives here in Colchester, having followed me to the UK! I loved this little insight into Finnish life and the beauty of its nature. Thank you for this post. Lovely smiley family too! xx
