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
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.
