After conference amusements

Hanne and I went to the Turku Archipelago, where we visited some 20 islands on the Archipelago Trail.  A bicycle may be recommended, but we are getting old and lazy, so we had a rented car. The islands on the trail are joined together by 12 bridges and nine ferries, with boat rides from 5 minutes to one hour. It was magnificent!
