Today’s To Do list: Relax

Another beautiful summer day in Åland with nothing on our To Do list. Still I rolled out my yoga mat on the terrace for a good 1,5 hour practice while Barry was typing on his computer. The light breeze was rustling through the trees and the sounds of traffic were replaced by flying beetles and other wildlife. Some reading, good eating and just breathing in the fresh country air. Ice water with fresh mint and lemon, a simply perfect summer drink.                  

Country living in Åland

After a brutal 5AM wake-up call we had a wonderful morning on the boat to Åland. Time passed quickly with yoga, reading and people watching as the hang-overed Finnish youth crawled by our table on the sun deck. What awaited us in Åland was even better than we could’ve dreamed of. Jacqueline from Björnhufvud B&B picked us up from the bus stop in style in an cream white antique Mercedes Benz. The B&B itself is pretty much heaven on earth. We had a delicious home cooked dinner in the beautifully restored main house that combines old world charm and modern rustic luxury where all the objects have a purpose or a story; or simply bring natural beauty. We settled in the conservatory overlooking the idyllic estate. A piece of jazz is playing in the summer evening and there will be no alarm clock for tomorrow.
