day 02: naantali (moomin-world) (0 comments)
on the second day of our scandinavia-tour we came to moomin-world, located in naantali, finland. in our tour guide (in paper-form, including tourist attractions and information for finland, sweden, norway, denmark, and iceland) it said "moomin-world" or "moomin-park", so we thought it's a park like disney-world, with all kind of stuff related to moomins, the tv series i enjoyed so much when i was a child, and zombiequeen had already seen a few times, including facts, news, background stories, making ofs, and dudes in cool costumes, acting as all the different moomin characters. well, it turned out it's more some kind of "hey, make my child tired please, that's what i pay (a pretty large amount of money) for"-park for parents. so we were the only couple there without kids. though not really the target group for this entertainment park, we at least enjoyed some theatre, showing some (most probably) funny moomin story. it was in finnish. or... we really think it was finnish, but maybe it was swedish. one character we enjoyed very much, which is some kind of a black furry troll, called "stinky". zombiequeen laughed out loud, and all other people - kids and parents - around, who most probably understood what the actors were talking about, stared at her in wonder. i guess the play was not intended to be funny at that moment, so no one else was laughing. the rest of the park was rather disappointing for adults (or, to be more precise, for austrian, childless moomin-loving adults), since all stuff was mainly for kids. although it was raining pretty hard all day long the park was rather crowded and loads of families were there. most of the kids did not care about the rain at all, and so did their parents. i think finnish people are not very influenced by the weather at all. i wonder what they wear in winter. afterwards we drove to tampere, which lies north to naantali. at the camp ground we saw our first cat on this trip. it was a cat that travelled in a camper and was outdoor on a leash. great idea, we could have taken lilo with us, meow!
