After a couple of days in Helsinki, we took the train to Jyvaskyla (pronounced yoo-vah-skoo-lah) to explore the traditional Finland countryside of forests and lakes. We did a couple of small road trips from there; one south to Korpilahti and another further north to Kuopio. Kuopio has a few all season ski jumps, where we enjoyed watching a few of the nutters! Even Barn said he wouldn't be crazy enough to try that sport........
We'll leave you with just a couple of suprising facts about Finland:
They consume more coffee than another other nation in the world (20m cups per day for the 5.2m population);
They consume the highest amount of ice cream in Europe!
