On mothers day I decided to get on my bicycle in Turku and explore the bishops castle (Kuusiston piispanlinna) and the wooden church in Kuusisto.

The environment is a little bit different than in Vaasa. There are more hills and there is a possibility to go 250 km by bike and explore the Turku Archipelago. The islands are connected by ferries and the route I took today is actually the starting point for the Turku Archipelago biking tour.
