Spring in Hankasalmi, Finland
Finland is known for it’s lakes and trees. In Hankasalmi, there are a mere 97 lakes. If you’re thirsty, this could just be the place for you.
My mum being from Finland, we visited there many times when we were younger.
This is part of the farm where she grew up, seemingly in the middle of nowhere but on a large lake called Niemisjärvi – try saying that when you’re drunk – where you can swim, row a boat and run across the ice when it’s frozen over.
Where is it exactly? It’s on Lake Niemisjärvi. See map below:
More to follow on Finland soon (keeping Mum happy!). Smiley face.
