Summer work always ties down to Finland, so the joy of traveling has to be found in few days get-aways inside this small but versatile country. This past weekend I navigated my way to Pori, where J’s mom lives. I’ve mostly seen that city as miserable and mirthless, but in summertime it really blooms.
Saturday we spent in a picnic-heaven Kirjurinluoto (small island near city centre) and in a local karaoke bar (J is a karaoke addict). On sunday we rested our sleepy eyes and visited a car boot flea market.
