Fortunately, the weather for today was as fine as possible, and thus allowed me to do a lot of exploring. First on the main streets, with their painted wooden houses and lots of green space, while I waited for the tourist information office to open. And when it did, the advice I was giving on how to spend a day in the islands involved mostly museums, which really were not the reason that had brought me there
Some time, though, I had to stop, when my legs and stomach couldn't do any more going on. And then I had to go back all the way, which was really tiring. A much needed 19 o'clock lunch and then some slow motion touring until I had to head for the midnight boat towards Helsinki.
The main town in the islands is a really nice place, with its very calm and slow atmosphere even in a summer working day. There is one fault with these islands, though, and it is that their people only speak Swedish... Come on, we are already in Finland! :P
