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:
On the left side: a Finn doing ice-swimming. On the right side: a German wondering why he didn’t stay at home with a nice cup of hot tea.
Also ich hab’ das auch schon mit umgekehrten Nationalitäten erlebt… 😉
Wären wir etwas besser ausgerüstet gewesen, hätte ich auch mitgemacht – die Aussicht auf eine heiße Sauna war zugegebenermaßen sehr verlockend 🙂
