Lappeenranta Wrap Up

A travel blog entry by chop49


Hoki and I were down to our last day in Finland. It had been an interesting trip, yet one that was always poised for disaster at the drop of a hat. My intent on going there was to see and spend some time with my two adult children. We also were staying at the home of my ex-mother-in-law.

After settling in, Hoki and I went for a walk through the fields towards the forest. The early evening light ...
