A Summer Place in Tampere

Other than attend Hanna & Dave's wedding we have explored some of Tampere, we were lucky to be treated to a city bus tour by Hanna & Dave yesterday while they had photos it was a great way to see the city. However before the wedding we hiked out to see the Pyynikki Tower, the suburb views over the lakes was well worth the climb. The reward (other than the view) was a coffee & special donut = yum!
Today we were treated to lunch and an afternoon at Hanna's families summer cottage, a stunning spot with a wooden house on the lake. Words & pictures do not do this place justice but it was nice to spend the afternoon sitting by the lake, feet in the water chatting to friends. I don't think anyone wanted to leave!
