Showtime. After breakfast time to pick up our bikes. When paperwork is done we head to the west and drive like kings! At least we follow a part of the day the old Kingsroad. The road which went from Turku to St. Petersburgh during the days Finland where under Russia and Turku was the capital of Finland. Today Kingsroad is one of the biker's favorite roads in South-Finland! One great pearl on the road is Fiskars. Small lively artesan village!

To day is a special drivingday. You drive through the beautifull archipelago to Åland. Åland is a part of Finland but it has it's partly autonomy, everybody here speaks swedish and the roads are red. Finland's south-west arrhipelago area has about 40000 islands, so you do not see them all today but many of the! From island to island we go with small archipelago ferries. This day is quite long but easy. You have time to rest and enjoy archipelago on the ferries. At Åland we stay in Mariehamn, the capital of Åland. And the only city here. It is a very lively place in summer. In winter time the streets are empty.

Today you have kind of a day off. It means you can explore Åland on your own if you want! Åland is full of lovely small roads and it is not possible to get lost. You are always coming to the shore in an hour or so and there are always signposts to Mariehamn. One nice destination is Ecerö in the west, Geta in north and Lumparland in the south. In the city everything is in a walking destination. There is naturally a nice private boat harbor on both sides of the city!
