This morning we hired a car for 1 week from Tampere and arranged it so Rina can drive - keeping her happy as she thinks she's in control.
We are traveling east to the Russian border and then north slightly and possibly end up doing a big circle here in the south east of Finland. We took the motorway to Lapeenranta with a few detours and Katrina had a great time driving the really wide carriageways which make one lane into two if you wish to overtake as you normally keep to the outside of the lane. Interesting.
The day has been very hazy being a combination of heat haze as well as smoke from the Moscow fires
Strawberries have been delicious and we're making sure we get our fill before the season finishes.
After a short drive around Lapeenranta in the morning we traveled further east and then up to Punkaharju for the night enduring a really hot hazy day. Very thankful we have an air conditioned car as this is quite unbelievable for Finland.
