Sunday afternoon activities

Since we had a cultivated Sunday afternoon last week, we decided to have an outdoor afternoon today. Ruissalo, an island right outside of Turku, can be easily reached by bus and has been on my “to-see” list for a while. The weather wasn’t that great today, but hey, who knows if it’s getting better, right? So we went there, knowing that the bus only leaves once an hour.

As soon as we got there, it started raining and snowing, and it was quite windy too. However, there were so many people on the bus who got off at the last stop that we thought this is what people do on a Sunday afternoon. We shouldn’t be sissies and just enjoy a walk in the rainy weather – the little one was sleeping anyway. Well, as soon as we arrived at the seaside (the bus left to return in an hour), we figured out why the people didn’t mind the weather:

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.

    Wären wir etwas besser ausgerüstet gewesen, hätte ich auch mitgemacht – die Aussicht auf eine heiße Sauna war zugegebenermaßen sehr verlockend 🙂
