Turku, Finland - 15th April 2014

By: jinxed


Hello

We were walking peacefully in a forest, when suddenly we noticed a monkey peeking from a hollow stump of a tree. He seemed friendly, so we went to talk to him. It turned out that he's Qah and he's a toyvoyager too. We invited him to join us.

It's spring in Finland, too. Look at these flowers. They're growing here and there in small groups among all the old, fallen leaves. Beautiful.

Huge old tree had snapped in two and the upper part had fallen down. The damage seemed to be quite recent, although the tree is very old and hollow. Perhaps the tree had finally gotten tired of standing still.

Unfortunately it started to rain and we had to rush back to jinxed's before getting soaked.

Best wishes,
Mr. Moose

Turku, Finland - 22nd April 2014

Hello

Teddy and I met Gozer, Emil, Hanne Hü and Qah at Koroistenniemi, where they were watching the view and examining the remains of old buildings. We gathered on a big stone that's probably been one of the foundation stones of a church that was located there a long time ago.

We talked a lot, enjoyed the nice weather and had fun, but nothing lasts forever and soon it was time to say good bye. It's time for Gozer to continue his journey.

Turku, Finland - 30th April 2014

Hello

Tomorrow is the first of May, which in Finland is called vappu and we're going to celebrate it. The celebrations start tonight, even the shops are closed earlier than usually and tomorrow is a national holiday.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-85pYnUmpRvg/U2egsXV8SiI/AAAAAAAACjE/i0BriXdiwbc/s800/image.jpg

The roots of vappu can be found from pagan spring celebrations and later it became the worker's holiday. Whatever the reasons for celebrating are now, the Finns gather their friends and/or families and do something fun. Like going out for a picnic and probably getting drunk, too.

Silly costumes are a part of vappu, too. Unfortunately we didn't have any, so we took some silly photos instead.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-mf8fT3s9-TA/U2eguWgG8rI/AAAAAAAACjY/I5PnOULYdms/s800/image.jpg

The weather isn't that nice, so we decided that jinxed's balcony is a good enough place for our picnic. So, that's where we went with our balloons and serpentine. Teddy brought us some traditional vappu snacks: crisps, funnel cake, doughnuts and mead.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-pfbotf2jYYQ/U2egsV5TYJI/AAAAAAAACjA/JRQcP8T6WRU/s800/image.jpg

We ate and drank a lot, maybe a little too much.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-ZVPsqEd8k8U/U2egsMiSCqI/AAAAAAAACi4/9G_xTTZnB9s/s800/image.jpg

But who cares, we had fun.

Greetings,
Mr. Moose

Turku, Finland - 7th May 2014

Hi there

Samppalinnanmäki (mäki = hill) is one of the seven hills of Turku and there's a nice park, too. That's where we went for a walk today.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-6q-IurcMJls/U2pSER5EHqI/AAAAAAAACkk/QXrht4AGcuM/s800/DPP_0278.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-J2pVlphGtuk/U2pSQDNBfpI/AAAAAAAACmM/VRXQL6m-5FE/s800/DPP_0291.JPG

This old cannon is a memorial for the cannoneers, who were in the Winter and Continuation Wars on 1939 - 1945.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-_qTUpOYXr1E/U2pSQ5BIaAI/AAAAAAAACmY/PgleQmXrw3A/s800/DPP_0292.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ZLcsiWysWG4/U2pSIF1QE0I/AAAAAAAAClM/SuIhAYcy_0Q/s800/DPP_0282.JPG

Hey, look. It's another memorial. This one is for all the veterans of Winter and Continuation Wars.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-GymQcDnGTE8/U2pSIqi3ldI/AAAAAAAAClI/SczbHUz12nw/s800/DPP_0283.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-gELwznfbtPs/U2pSR2mjzwI/AAAAAAAACmg/oWFspfFcXFw/s800/DPP_0293.JPG

This statue is a memorial for G.A. Petrelius, whoever he was.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-gkmub7rg0u0/U2pSJXADw1I/AAAAAAAAClU/-2HjyfTtzfk/s800/DPP_0284.JPG

Here are some nice views to the town center.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-SoednLiUfPA/U2pSLo1DuwI/AAAAAAAAClk/applsgU-7WE/s800/DPP_0286.JPG

The building here is restaurant Samppalinna.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-GWD2ZHyzc3Q/U2pSaEt8afI/AAAAAAAACnk/qUEHK2f9kzY/s800/DPP_0303.JPG

This one's for the independence of Finland.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-tIWqHQY9Za8/U2pSMv1cQnI/AAAAAAAACls/oG4-Hq-gPK4/s800/DPP_0287.JPG

Here you can see a small part of Aurajoki (joki = river). The red building is Pharmacy Museum and Qwensel House. It's the oldest surviving bourgeois home in Turku, dating back to the early 18th century. Turku is a bilingual town and Åbo is its name in Swedish.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-UXsQ4MwUFdI/U2pSbvLM3lI/AAAAAAAACn0/MPnOMqLJbfg/s800/DPP_0305.JPG

Here's a view from Aurasilta (silta = bridge). The nearest building is the town hall.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-IPLhfxVuqhs/U2pSdJ7qyHI/AAAAAAAACn8/4XgA2TsVy7I/s800/DPP_0307.JPG

There's a nice cafe in Qwensel House and we decided to go there.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-hWSeGhcsZJo/U2pSeRuO_YI/AAAAAAAACoU/JXWK1Aaxhes/s800/DPP_0308.JPG

Then it was time to say goodbye. Emil won't return to home with us, he'll start his journey towards new adventures instead.

Hey,

today we had a short walk and guess what we found? A boat in a garden. We were so surprised. And we don't know if it is decoration, or if the people forgot that they had a boat in their garden.
We also got to smell some flowers, which was really nice as well.

Love
Mr. Moose

Hey,

so today we all watched the Eurovision Song Contest together. It's a song competition Europe has every single year. This year they had a guest country - Australia.
We had snacks and watched it for a while but then were tired.

The winner is this video here (CLICK). A really great song from Sweden.

Love
Mr Moose
