Finland is called the country of the thousands of lakes. If you don´t live nearby a waterway round the year, you look for the place nearby the waterway at least for a summer. Lakes are for swimming, for rowling or sailing, for skiing or skating and ice fishing and so on. If some people are wondering to see us swimming in the lake in the summer, they are usually wondering even more to see us skiing or skating , even walking on the lake in the winter. That looks scary!
Whatever you are doing: swimming, rowling, sailing, fishing, skiing or skating, when you just stop to see the amazing view, you can just relax and enjoy looking it. I think many of us are also showing these kind of things to our visitors and friends from abroad. These things are pretty familiar to us but they can be really exotic to the people who come from far.
