House in Vaasa, Finland
We have a really beautiful house. It is four kms from city centre, but our area is looking like old finish countryside. Our garden is large with 3 000 m2.
Our car is Toyota Avensis Verso with 7 seats and plenty of room for luggage.
In our house first floor is place to stay, while you are awake. Kitchen and dining place are a large combination.
You can also find a wooden owen from our kitchen. If you love to eat fish or meat, it tastes delicious made in the wooden oven.
Outside in the garden I also have smoking owen. At least once a week I make some smoked fresh fish in the owen.
The middle part of our house is made 1921. We have built some extra in two different times in 1998 and 2002. We like oldfashioned style and materials found from nature.
You can't find any artificial materials from our house. We also like classical finish furniture.
In uppstairs there is three sleeping rooms, a bath and room for children to play.
We have computer with free internet and wifi, which covers all of the house and even in the garden.
The nearest swimming place is just 1,5 kms away from our house. We have a gardening house, where there is tomatoes and salad. Also we have strawberrys and appletrees on our garden.
On winter time you can start nordic skiing from our front door. You can also try skating or ice fishing. It is just 5 kms to the sea and good fishing places.
I also have some friends who can take you out to sea to fishing or to just spend the day watching the seaside.
We have at least seven bikes. I have a mountain bike but also a racebike. Off course we have bikes with chid seats on.

Our Destination Wish List
Vaasa is on the sea. It is surrounded by sea. There are many things that you can do in Vaasa. Of course most of them are related to sea.
There are 11 thousand students and four different universitys in Vaasa. That is why Vaasa is quite international city.
The airport is big if you compare to other same size cities. You can take a flight to Vaasa from Helsinki, Stockholm or Riga.
Ryanair is flying to Tampere, which is 230 kms from Vaasa. It is good connection also.
You can go easily from Vaasa to Lappland, which is the major tourist attraction in Finland. There the sun never goes down on summer time. Nights are full of light.
On winter time there is snow in Vaasa. You can walk on the sea, drive with car on sea or make a hole and go swimming to the sea. It is so lovely...after you come up from the ice cold water.
On summer Finland is full of happenings. Near Vaasa in Pori (200 kms) is a great jazz happening. It is in july, and if you do not find a place to sleep in full city you can drive back to Vaasa. Dark hours in july are only from 02.00-05.00.
There is an amusement park in Vaasa, but also a greater one about 80 kms from Vaasa. It is called powerpark(fine internetsight)and there you can for example drive a race with miniformulacars.
In august we becan to pick up blueberrys and mushroom from woods. Did you know that fishing, wandering in forests and picking up berries and mushroom is available for anyone in Finland.
So you can pick up your own mushroom and make a wonderful meal. Or taste blueberrypie with vanillasauce.
You can also try your luck with fishing. Sea is easily reached as it lies everywhere in Vaasa.
