Sellainen ol’ Viipuri… – an unusual trip to Karelia.


I have the best colleagues ever. They also happen to be the best travel company ever.

I tagged along with them to this ’round the Ladoga lake trip and it was truly fascinating. It gets more and more mesmerising with every day passed after the end of the trip. It won’t be long until I’m back in Karelia again, that is for sure.

My thoughts are with the Karelian evacuees, their families and with the people who have no choice other than seek happiness in sad remnants of what once used to be a rich (economically as well as culturally) region.
