... This town was established in the year 1400. In the afternoon we returned to Paimio for a siesta and relaxed last day of visiting with our Finnish family.

Building up expectations, ...
... on board the ferry. Everyone but ourselves seemed to be ******, not just a little tipsy "let's do a few annoying woohoos" ******, I mean steaming ******, as in “I can’t even form a sentence before forgetting it and starting a new topic” ******. The staff seemed to be quite ok with these happenings so we just assumed it must be normal for the Finnish and went back to our off board scenery.
The ferry took 11 hours in total and in that time ...
