Northern Finland here we come!

Now its time to explore  northern Finland. Google maps is my navigator, and this time I chose the way via Jyväskylä. 

We had change to start our trip at 3 PM after full day, so no way I could drive many hours(even that this daMOO has all help from the #Berlingo). 

So I had good night sleep at #Jyväskylä, on public beach (#Köhniö)  If you ever travel with van here in Finland, and dont want to use official camping places, in some public beaches has toilets, and of course full bathtub.

About the beach; Toilets were quite ok, little full, but there was paper, changeing rooms for take clothes off and yes you can have your swimsuite on. No-one  was there without clothes. I was quite amazed how many people there was, and just drop in to water and then leave. Like common hobby in Jyväskylä. 

I got little swim too and then happy time with netflix in Berlingo and good night sleep❤️. Perfect I can say.

Hot Air balloons and happy ride

In Lithuenia one stop was Kaunas. 100 #HotAir Balloons Fiesta 100 #OroBallionu Fiesta

We got change to work: Berlingo was good to find right departure and landing places and then I had change to work with getting balloon up and down and packed. Great work and thing to do. I’m in love ❤️.

Once I had a change to get one 1 hour ride, and can you even imagine we landed to field where cows were having their supper 😂. 

Those hot air balloons,  it was like you are not in this world at all, you are in fairytail. From the ground or the sky, happy, beautiful and  soft fairytail. Sounds, air and visual view; you are part of something where you can feel home in the fairytail. MOOism feelings.

Cow parade

Next stop with cows is Ventspils. Its a small town on the west coast. 

And there is cows- in sculpture form. They have had #cowparade there in 2012.

On the road again!

Boat to Estonia Tallin And right away to Pärnu and .. well Pärnu wasn’t anything to stay for us, so we drove a little bit further... from there was one hotel about 50 km south. 

And what a great choise that was, cos on our way there was old Kosmonauts holiday centre "Kosmonautika Holiday Centre". It used to be a holiday destination for long-serving cosmonauts. 

And there was some Highland cattle. Lovely ones on windy shore.


Somehow I fell I want to go back there. 

Lebanina hotel has some bungalows.

Basic ones, and cos the weather is so cold and windy- warmer is a life saver.

Price is cheap, breakfast included and so is morning Sauna. 

I think this place can be like heaven in REAL summer time. Sound landscape ❤️ and the view.

Berlingo is now equiped with stove!

I did some serious compairing about real tandem cooksets with real gas. Got even small 5kg gastank, and went to great gas owens store in Vantaa #Kaasuvalo.

I told what I’m looking for and asked some help- well got help indeed- I should have different compartement for that kind of gastank etc- and my dear Berlingo shold be registered as a camper too(Finland)- its not, cos I’m using it as a normal car also. 

So I thanked him and started to think about having gas stove on my apartement- It can happen. Thank you I will be back.

Next plan is to go to Partioaitta and find something there. Partioaitta is outdoor gear shop famous to be favourite to Scouts (I was Scout several years in my child- and younghood).

I have now Trangia in the Berlingo, but I wanted to have something more effective (Need to have my coffee) and some style more for urban outdoorist and cowist, like I feel to be nowdays.

And I found it: Primus Onja Stove... 

So today I have just gathered some cooking ware and dreamed to go on the road again.

First contact!

Berlingo wanted to watch from the distance-

I dared to go closer.

Dared in deed...those cows were so big with great horns. 

They were curious, like finnish cows seems to be always(in Sweden, no way that social and curious ones) and the same minute we stopped, some of them started to come closer. Very close indeed. Huj. I was talking to them "that never mind me, just wanting to take some photos, never mind me...."

I wonder when the first angry farmer comes to me and says that "don’t you talk to my cows grazy woman"🙈.

"Umh sorry, I just trying to be and impress idea of an artist, kind of, grazy, well maybe."

This place was called #rajaharju and they are producing milk for #valio- called #valiomaitotila.

All the Valio farms has their own logo with this design:
