In this little coastal town, you can go around and around

Greetings from Hamina, a little Finnish coastal town near the Russian border. I had a great time there visiting my aunt (who is also a talented painter btw), eating the best strawberry pastries ever, spotting the Moomin troll in Tove Jansson’s painting, greeting some drunken old sailors, and getting familiar with the history of this very beautiful Russian influenced town. It’s like a little secret place that not so many people know about; even the main road signs don’t point there, just to St. Petersburg. Strange but true. I also had my first encounter with a ghost whilst visiting this old smith’s house (the building behind me in the first picture), and I wasn’t even scared which is even stranger. Must visit this magnificent place again next summer!

Anonymous: Yes, a spirit. πŸ™‚ There was this cold air floating/moving in the smith's workroom and it was tickling and touching our hands making the freezing cold.Domennie: Moomins are the cutest! Thanks! The zipper vest is actually from a few years back but I've started to appreciate it more and more lately. :)Georgia: Yeah me too!

He was so cute, that drunken old sailor. πŸ™‚ Let's hope so too, so we can be twins! ;)Chloe: It was this cold air floating in the smith's old work room and it was touching and tickling our hands making them all cold. It was moving to different places within the room, like someone was walking. We also checked that there was no draft since the windows were all sealed. people witnessed it, so it must be real! I was so surprised that I wasn't scared but it was during daytime so that might have helped a bit. πŸ™‚ I woudln't go there night time, no no.KAELA: Thank you! πŸ™‚
