Postcard Travels with Roland Poland - Week 43 Finland

Roland Poland and Xui are visiting Helsinki for a trade fair and to round off their week, they head up country to do a spot of fishing.

He writes to his brother Malcolm,

Hi Malcolm,
Xui and me have been out in a boat on the water.
We started reminiscing how we first met, on the
Amazon river.
Remember how that fish bit me on the bum - well
Malcolm, I'm  still waiting for someone to kiss it better!

Here is his travel book for this week.

We have included views around Helsinki and sights from up country, elk and  the national animal of Finland, the brown bear.

This week's postcard is a landscape using stamps from A Stamp in the Hand and Stampscapes. It has been coloured with water colour markers.  Thank you for taking the time to visit us and I do hope you will follow the other travellers on our challenge (link in sidebar)
