Naantali, Finland

Its a little resort town not too far from Turku. I took the bus there. It is very pretty, lots of wooden buildings, pretty gardens and the coast with lots of boats. A lot of the boats were for sale, each one with a price tag of over 100,000 euros and used boats too. There weren't too many tourists about but a lot of Finnish children because there is a Moomin island nearby and they are all going there. We knew nothing of Finland growing up so we weren't brought up with Moomins. I'm only just now finding out about them and am reading up about them and their creator, Tove Jansson.
