Day 37: Meeting Archie

Monday

Shopping to replenish water, milk etc and even better …. gin!  Slight contretemps with Sally the sat nav who tried to take us the wrong way.  Ended up putting on the mifi and using the iPad with maps to navigate.  Would have used a map, honest, (not de-skilling) but the Europe map we have has very poor detail of Finland and the guide book’s maps are also basic and only show main towns etc of interest..

Thus we used googleland to head south – to see Archie –  Archie Pelago ! He has 25,000 islands off the coast of Turku.   We navigated Pargas, Nagu and Korpo and we will stay tonight in a supermarket car park on a marina on Nagu. The supermarkets name – you guessed it! “K Market”!  We crossed bridges and used small ferries – those who know – think Tarbert to Killimer size.  We cycled for 21 ‘kinometres, sorry kilometres, and almost got lost…..  Now for pre-prandials and supper….

We have seen some unusual road signs ? but “Sexinapantie” ? We offer no comment…

Ferry!
