WHAT TO DO IN COTTAGE
The Finns love to be as close the nature as possible. In July when "Finland is closed" with summer holidays and all Finns are in their summer residences, you should jump also along ride . If you don't have "own home Finn" and his cottage to where you could go, you should simply rent cottage which are lot of available.
Then you should try this cottage life if this is "your case".
Here are really simple list what Finns do in their own " kingdom of cottage".
This Finns do :
2. drinks, beer, Koskenkorva,(Finnish origin vodka) white and red wine (these are only grades and marks that Finns know about wines)
4. working and preparing strange things in cottages
5. barbeque's, sausages,birds observing as well plants and all the rest animals which belongs to neibourghood of this cottage
6. to spend and entairn time and with friends in cottage including also foreign
7. just relax and waste time
8. read books and Donald Duck and watch tv and listened radio or music
(important things to do on visit Wooden c)
9. what ever between " the earth and heaven".
10. if this happened to be boring, go back to 1-2, if still boring, the cottage life is not your "case".
If you want to see your own cottage Finn as nature as possible, go to his/her cottage without any inform beforehand and you have unique occasion to see
your friend as " primitive... man or woman". This could be worth of seeing.
"Ancient Finnish saying.... as old as The Finns are".
If the alcohol, tar or Sauna don´t help, the sickness is to dead.
Finnish families go to sauna together when children are under 12 years or so.
So here you have unofficial Finnish family sauna rules and you might see some naked persons so this is not recommended rigorous person and also unders 18 years .
The rules are practical for everyone.
1 § Take your sauna time without any hurry.
2 § Help for yourself with all drinks and refreshment which here are and
you might take by your hands. Enjoy ....
3§ Nothing is so important.... and also this isn´t important at all.
( These roles are made in one boring day when worked as duty officer.
The copy was given also to one "customer when he asked this)
See real package from : Taivassalo page
How Ì´ll trap big pike from sea........
When saw in Red sea this fish I supposed that could be pike, but this wasn´t true then was barracuda and ... this is true.
If somebody tell you that in Finland you might get 200 kilogram weight fish from sea, I can tell you immediate this is definitely fish story-not true.
True story might be as follow (see picture), "I have got with three "cottage net during one week time from sea 200 kilograms Rainbow trouts and cleansed one trout was more than 2 kilogram."
In picture is also one Baltic herring in my hand and our dog Viivi tried to get it.
This is toilet, old Finnish made from wood.
This kind of building belongs to every Finnish cottage. If in new modern cottages comfort belongs real wc, this should build for sure and secure and with this way I suppose most cottages are nowadays still done.
Manuals same than sauna roles point 1 §, but opposite process than eating.
If here are magazines you might read them during session. Should be place at least ;" Donald Duck and Technical magazine . ( Aku Ankka ja Tekniikan maailma)
The Finn men when they are child go ahead fluent from Donald Duck comic to Technical magazine "Tekniikan Maailma".
"Suomalainen poika siirtyy lukemasta suoraan Aku Ankasta Tekniikan maailmaan ja sen takia pitäisi molemmat lehdet löytyä puuseestä".
Tässä saattaa olla alku; maailmanlaajuisen suomalaisen teknisen kehityksen innovaatioon.
"This might be the secret and fastest way to be complete as engineer for world wide Nokia Corporation"
In Finland there are about 5 million inhabitants and half million summer cottages and residencies, so there are also half million wooden c (puusee).
Summer time with birds sings, this is the place, with no harry, early in the morning, that you`ll later miss.
You should add this original place to your own experience.
This might run some dependency to you.
This is so unique experience that later would be inpossible to build up to your urban city this kind establishment -unfortunately.
In Finland tho most this kind of buildings are different.
The rye bread is one of Finns passion, what they miss in the world.
After this chapter number 7 session you might go ahead with eating this excellent bread.
