So the topic of our third meeting was “Tourism hotspots”/”Places of interests”.
Antti therefore introduced us Åland, Hämmenlinna, the major cities and the 39 national parks. Especially Åland sounded quite interesting to me. Since I am a nature lover, I definitely have to add it to my “Finland – Bucket-List”.
I also prepared a handout with pictures of the most beautiful places in Vienna/Austria. Or more specifically, we talked about Schönbrunn Palace, the Vienna Donauturm, the Rathaus (town hall), St. Stephen’s Cathedral and last but not least … the Prater, our amusement park which includes the Wiener Riesenrad, a 212 feet tall Ferris wheel at the entrance of the park. I visited all of these places with my parents and relatives when I was a kid, and I can look back to very fond memories whenever I re-visit them. I think Vienna has quite a lot of remarkable places of interests, I have never really noticed it until I left my hometown.
