... and some lovely Finnish cakes? It was in fact 1990 that Gwyneth and I first came to Finland to pioneer links between Physical Education at the University of Plymouth with the University of Lapland, later Gwyneth completing a year at the University of Jyvaskyla. We drive on through the rain and are now sitting in glorious sunshine at about 8pm in a lovely campsite - Saynaniemi, near Puhelin, not too far from Tampere. A lovely end to the ...

There are other, slightly more elaborate, things on the menu and some of the steaks that have come out look pretty decent. Its a ...

Fighting boredom

A travel blog entry by joahonen

... a bit of a photowalk by the lake (by myself) and sat in one of my fave cafes for quite a while, because I didn't fancy getting soaked by the bipolar weather. Sunshine and pouring rain, pouring rain and sunshine. Now I'm heading to my friends', as I decided to extend my visit by one night at their place, just so we could catch up properly.

In other words, I fought the boredom and I won. My wallet may not be thrilled, but at ...
