Mikkeli is very much part of my childhood. My mother was born near it, so we ended in spending the childhood summers over there.

Mikkeli is situated on the lake Saimaa. A great place, a very beautiful area. I can vividly remember the words my nephew said, travelling by car for the first time to the area:
"Wau, what a scenery!" He was about 5 years old then.

    Mikkeli - this place will always have a place in my heart! I spent three months there in 1997. Finnish people I met in England laughed when I said I liked Mikkeli. But I found real people there and truly beautiful nature!
