A lazy Sunday outside of Helsinki, Finland

This was the train stop for 'Ainola' the former home of Finland's beloved composer, Jean Sibelius. This was as 'far from the beaten path' as one can get but it was about half an hour by commuter train from Helsinki. The walk to the house passed fields like this, woods and fields of wild flowers. Even today with increased building and development, it is easy to see why artist like Sibelius and many others chose this area for their home. I followed the signs that said 'Ainola.' and came to a paradise, the compound that is 'Ainola.'
