After we left the ferry we spotted that map at the wooden harbour...
At the second day of our trip we had any free time at afternoon and we decided to go anywhere beyond Turku. We made lighting decision where we would go and we eventually chose one of small and fast ferries whose wharfed close us.

We travelled towards island that called Vepsä. This small rocky island is located about 20 kilometers from Turku and hidden amongst the other islands. Getting to Vepsä is possible only from water as well to the most of the small islands at the Finnish coast. Almost every islands are inhabitated and when we were sailed overthere we passed a lot of stylish wooden houses built just aside water.

Vepsä - we spotted a map with legend but everything was written in Finnish language. We felt a bit as tourists whose got to exotic country at the end of the world. The island is nice, nor overcrowded (some camping have been built there), at the most terrain there were any wood.

We came back at the evening and we spent second night in our blissful hotel. Next day we departed to Helsinki. We trabvelled overthere by bus, I still remember of cost for one ticket
