We were going to Kodiksami ....... near Lappi...... but that can be confusing too as Lapland in Northern Finland is also known as Lappi so when we add near Rauma  they understand. But that  will be  another day.

We had a pleasant drive from Ryttyla to Kodiksami where Rina had spent seven
months as an Au Pair when she was here previously.  Cousin Tero had
loaned us "Tim" the Tom Tom who will hopefully keep us from getting too lost. Rina set it to avoid all motorways  so "Tim" took us along some very pleasant country roads even if they were narrow. Just had to take care and fortunately we didn't come across any Finnish rally drivers.  By keeping off the motorways I could call for a pic stop  and take photos of scenery that is so different to home.  Sometimes after stopping I would discover  there was  more beautiful to come but have  digital -  doesn't matter .....  just keep on clicking ...... rina says I'm a clickaholic.

We were welcomed very warmly by Jorma,  Birgith and their family.  They  moved into their new home early last year  so we were made feel at home in their old house just close by, literally a stones throw.  It was great to spread out a little and sleep in till we were ready to wake up because we have been going to bed so late. The sun only sets after 10.30 and with so much light  it has been hard to settle  as it is easy to lose track of time.

PS most of the photos have  extra comments

have you come across the emusive moose? We never saw one when we were there even though there a bit like our kangaroos in crossing the road at dusk. Take care on the road as it's dusk all night!
