Old Porvoo

Porvoo is famed for its old town, old wooden houses, the spirit of medieval time. Every summer it is a must for me to go there and now since last few years I always camp there some nights beside the river "Porvoonjoki" right front of the old town.

I used to go there every spring for my first motorbike drive around easter, year after year while waiting after a long winter that the spring arrives. It came a tradition that my bike got the first ride to Porvoo and me drinking a coffee in one of those river cafes. Golden memories :)

My bike and me "some" years ago and already as a kid I just loved bikes!

So back to Porvoo again... Porvoo is a city located 50 km east from Helsinki, it has a nice atmosphere, loads of design products, handcraft items and of course touristic things too, since in summer days it gets plenty of day tourists. Buss loads of people are coming to visit Porvoo during their days in Helsinki. Its historical side is charming, narrow alleys, small boutiques near the river but in winter its changes to a sleepy village!
