Finland - The secret paradise in the forest!

A cottage by a lake, totally silence, a hot sauna and cold beer, is just what you need to reload your batteries and heal your soul. I found myself deep in the ancient forest in northern Finland. As Lonely Plane`t describe Finland on its website; the country offers natural beauty, lots of elbow room and the fine art of the sauna. By the sunset I soaked up the magical atmosphere in the largest unspoilt wilderness in Europe.

Something for the X-files?

Boomerangs used in the Stone Age in Finland!

At the Kierikki Stone Age Centre, I really was really amazed to find boomerangs displayed in a museum. This centre is located in Yli-Ii, Finland, and tells about Finnish Stone Age life. Since I mostly associate boomerangs with the Australian Aborigines, I didn’t expect to find boomerangs here, but it made me aware of that boomerangs and other similar items have been used many places around the world.

Wether is summer or winter, the Finns like it hot.
