My first trip to Finland was in summer, 2015!
Visited Finland for the First Time
Blue sky, white ships, and seagulls. Walked to the harbor market place in the Friday afternoon after the four-day academic conference closed in Helsinki.

About Vanha Kauppahalli
Various kinds of butterflied trout fish in the glass-front showcases.
Some fish are baked.
Curious about what kind of meat or game is canned...
Visited two-hours IC train trip town, Turku. Tuomiokirkko is the most venerable cathedral in Finland.
About Turku / Åbo
Looks like there was a wedding ceremony inside the cathedral. People are waiting for the bride and groom, and a twin kids are waiting for their parents to go home with, maybe.
This place is the reason why I wanted to visit Turku. The Sibelius Museum! ;D
People loves waterfront in the sun.
Buddy-buddy family in one bench... ; )
Nowhere in Turku.
Luostarinmaki Kasityolaismuseo (Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum)
Back to the cathedral, inside look.

I'm the one who marked the tracks!
Playing space for kids on the IC train is so cute! ;D
Donald Duck comics seem to be very popular here.
