My 2nd host family live in Koivula, one of the outer suberbs of Kotka.

In Summer there was a lot of berries and mushrooms etc, I could walk to the forest at the edge of my back yard and pick some berries and eat them, not the same story with the mushrooms though, you can pick them but you have to know the right sort to pick as the others can be poisonous, I will leave the mushroom picking to the experts...

Random fact: Finnish mushrooms are really good quality, Italian chefs are known to pay big money to import them to use in their cooking.

I love spending time at Koivula river, it is a really beautiful place and I sometimes go there just for a walk or to think or write my journal.
