Turku

Like you noticed already in previous post, photos are from different seasons. Currently we are supposed to have winter here, but there’s really not much snow.  They were supposed to hold 60th ‘Pirkan hiihto’ cross country skiing event (length 90 kilometers,  route is going very near us) last weekend, but for the first time in history they had to cancel it because of the lack of snow!

Turku is the oldest town in Finland, situated in south-west coast, about 170km from Hämeenkyrö.
