Savonlinna


After the Arctic Circle we headed south. We had a campsite at Kerimaki lake near a big wooden church.  We saw lots of geese heading south for the winter.

Then we went to a castle called Olavinlinna in Savonlinna. It is built on a rock in the lake, and there in some of the castle rooms you can see rock sticking out of the floor.  The floors were very uneven. The castle was built by Erik Tott, and was named for St. Olav. We climbed right to the top. There was a room for the ladies and a room for the men. The toilet stuck out the side of the tower and if you stood underneath it you would get poo on your head! The tops of the towers were round, not like English castles.

Then we drove to Helsinki, but the car wasn’t very well and we needed to order some parts.
