Finland: A Brief Stop in Rauma

Rauma, FinlandAfter Turku, we took a quick stroll around Rauma. Old Rauma is a UNESCO World Heritage site because it is the largest unified historical wooden town in the Nordic countries (about 600 buildings). While the buildings and cobbled streets were thoroughly charming, the bulk of the Old Town was a boutique shopping/dining area. I’m not really one for shopping, but if you like cute shops and boutiques, it might be your speed. However, I’m still glad we stopped and took a look around.

 

Even More Retro Cars….

Reykjavik, Iceland The latest batch of snazzy retro rides: 1. Mercedes 200 series mid-1980  2.Ford Fairlane or Galaxie  1961-1964  3. 1966 or 67 Ford Mustang  4. Porsche 911 Targa (1990’s?). Many thanks to my dad for identifying all these pretty cars for me. The Benz is my favorite. My dad used to drive a not so spiffed up ’85 350 diesel, so this orange one made me smile and think of him.
