I never finished editing my pictures from my visit to Finland in 2010 and now the cousins I visited then are coming to visit me. Their upcoming visit has served as good motivation to get those pictures edited. And a good thing, as I had nearly forgotten how interesting and beautiful Finland was!

This is an image from Neristan, the Old Town of Kokkola (Karleby) where a large neighborhood of traditional wooden homes still exists. It is a wonderful place to wander — my dad and cousin didn’t think they’d ever get me back in the car again!

This is my contribution to Travel Photo Thursday at Nancie’s Budget Traveler’s Sandbox. Head on over and see what she’s posted this week and then follow the links to images from around the world.

I would love to visit Finland!!

It's a lovely place just for wandering — especially on a summer day!

What a variety of color and texture you caught in this photo!

It's one of the things I love about Scandinavia — there are so many painted wooden buildings that provide a lot of color and texture. I love to do photography there.

That's how imagine the homes to look like. Have yet to visit but would love to explore the country.

My cousins live in a house that looks exactly like a Scandinavian house should – the old-style houses make the countryside look like a fairytale come to life!

Finland is high on my bucket list. I am enthralled by the architecture of the country. Lovely!
