As I mentioned in my last post, the Aland Archipelago is located between Sweden and Finland.

It is nothing short of amazing to move through the archipelago, from one tiny island to another on an impossibly quiet ship that seems to outsize many of the islands themselves.

Our rental cottage was located just outside the town of Mariehamn in a quiet little spot next to the sea. Given all of our reservations were made blindly, on-line, I was pleasantly surprised.

What a view!

As is customary in Finland, Aland and Sweden, the sauna was located next to the sea so that you can cool off after your sweat (THAT'S an understatement!) in the sea water.

Our rooms were small but comfortable (the kids pushed their beds together!)
