Nous irons à Tampere, elle est la seconde agglomération après Helsinki. La ville industrielle de Tampere connaît un essor pratiquement continu depuis le milieu du Première Guerre mondiale, le sort économique de la ville devient directement lié au sort des armes et donc au sort militaire et économique de la métropole russe à laquelle est encore rattaché le Grand-duché de Finlande. Les commandes de guerre russe stimulent l’industrie locale avant que leur arrêt brutal ne stoppe net cette activité économique perturbée par les difficultés de ravitaillement liées à la guerre en Baltique. Tampere a été le théâtre de la principale bataille de la url= read more

Porvoo I had thought about visiting Rauma long ago, when I checked up the lists of UNESCO World Heritage sites in European countries. Of Finland’s World Heritage Sites, I have seen only the Suomenlinna Fortress, and the other few ones I’m not yet planning to visit. It was not a nearby town, and when I checked up the total price of getting there (from Petersburg) I thought it a bit expensive, but nevertheless made plans to go there. Finally, I had the opportunity of arranging a short journey to Finland. According to initial plan, my work in Moscow was to be finished by October 14 but I will have to stay till the end of October. However, when I was planning this trip I yet thought I’d be at home during this time. So, I bought ... read more

Huhhuh...lähtö Ranskaan lähestyy kovaa vauhtia. Viimeiset kahdeksan kuukautta olemme tienneet lähtevämme reissuun. Tällä hetkellä ainakin minä haluaisin vain päästä matkaan, jotta pääsisin tästä odotuksesta. Vielä kaksi päivää aikaa miettiä, mitä on mahtanut unohtua. No, emme onneksi ole lähdössä ensimmäistä kertaa pitemmäksi aikaa Ranskaan. Kaikki tulee järjestymään. Eniten odotan uuden kodin näkemistä. Olemme vuokranneet kalustamattoman asunnon, jossa ranskalaisen tavan mukaan ei ole yhtään mitään. Eli keittiömme käsittää vain lavuaarin ja vesihanan. Jääkaappi ja uuni puuttuvat täysin. Onneksi ranskalaiset ystävämme ovat lupautuneet auttamaan huoneiston kalustamisessa. Tällä hetkellä tyhjä asunto tuntuu inspiroivalta, mutta paikan päällä voi kaiken olennaisen puuttuminen jossain vaiheessa harmitaa. No, katsotaan miten homma etene... read more

Holiday Boy Route 1 Well its been a while since our last update about 4000KM to be precise!!!! We travelled all the way up to the North Cape the northern most point in Euorpe (that isnt actually the northen most point theres a piece of headland around the corner that sticks out a bit further but thats a 10KM walk to get there!!!!). The Norweigens have tourism sussed though its cost £35 in road tolls to get to the North Cape although I cant complain the road is amazing and even includes a 7KM tunnel under a fjord, that said you then have to pay £20 per person to get into the visitors centre which is a bit of a rip off. After that we headed into Finland as soon as you cross the border there ... read more
