Naantali (without sunshine)

Yesterday, the weather forecast promised a little (little, little) bit of sunshine today. So a friend of us invited me for a walk along the seaside at Naantali, about 15 km away from Turku, since we are all a bit desperate for sunshine right now.

Well….there was no sunshine. I am not sure about what to think about weather forecasts by now. This morning, it said “partly cloudy”. All I could see was a thick, grey layer of clouds, no parts whatsoever. Two forecasts promise bright blue sky and sunshine for the next two days. Somehow I doubt that, but we’ll see.

Anyway, Naantali is worth a visit. It is a nice little town with an old convict church. The main attraction during the summer time is the Moomin World and I can imagine the streets being terribly packed with tourists then. At this time of the year, however, the streets are empty and the Moomin World is closed (and so are the cafés). It was grey and windy, but great anyway! The good thing about the Scandinavian houses is that even on a day like this you still have some colour in your life. And hopefully we’ll be able to visit it again before we leave, maybe with a tiny little bit of sunshine…

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.
