FINLAND | Fri, 5 Jul 2013 | By mrniles | Views [248]

Its uncanny how when you stand at the bottom of the well, and look up at the sky, during the day time,...and the stars are visible. Its a scientific fact that the tunnel effect of the walls of the well act as a natural telescope and light diffuser. This ... Read more >

Finnland war für mich wie Nachhausekommen, sich wohl fühlen im Naturell der Menschen. Ruhe, Natur, Kargheit. Sehr schön, sehr kalt. Aber einen weiteren Besuch sicher wert!
