Hi there! While I was thinking about my next blog post I realized I haven,t shown you the photos that I took in Rauma yet. Well, the second day of November seems to be just perfect for finally writing something about this wonderful town.
I,d always wanted to visit Rauma. I once saw a lovely documentary about this town located on the west coast of Finland and ever since then I,ve been in love with this place, so when my dad asked me what would be our road trip destination I answered, "Rauma!" without hesitating for a second. After driving through beautiful golden oat fields we arrived in Rauma ready to spend two days there.
Well, Rauma is charming. The old town just fascinates you with its cobbled streets, wooden houses, marine decor everywhere, lovely shops and cafes. What is really special about Rauma is that people still do live in the old town which is a unesco world heritage and they always make sure their windows are decorated nicely with all kinds of toy sailboats. So cute! No wonder I couldn,t help bringing home my own little sailboat that I bought in one of the adorable souvenir shops.
Have a lovely weekend!
