Ruissalo is an island next to Turku. My Finnish friend Leena was kind enough to take me there on Sunday. We had a relaxing time strolling through the nature reserve and having a picnic.

The water in the photographs form part of the sea. The area surrounding Turku is famous for it’s many little islands (see a map of the area). Ruissalo is a popular summer hang-out. I was wearing my puffy jacket, but there where people swimming! Clearly I’m not used to Northern hemisphere climate. Autumn here equals winter in Cape Town.
