... 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.

When we finally all sat down for a late breakfast or early lunch, we had Tomi's mom's amazing homemade rye bread with mozzarella cheese, olive butter, ...
