Reviews of Porvoo experiences

Rauhoittava iltahetki rantalehdossa

Ja tietysti snacksit oli myös hyviä (rakastuin linssisipseihin etenkin) ja Aulin itse tehty tee maistui myös. Iltapalaa söimme auringonlaskussa. 🌅

Mielenkiintoinen ja erilainen tapa lähestyä paikallishistoriaa. Pidin myös oppaan tavasta kertoa ja rytmittää tarinoita.
