In Finland by AncientCat In Finland by AncientCat
Dammut, I wanted to title this as 'Lake Tohmajärvi', but letter 'ä' is not allowed !!!

In Finland, In Northen-Karelia, there's village near Russian border.
It's called Tohmajärvi.
This is part of the beautiful large (?) lake in there.

Tohmajärvi is really beautiful village.
Peaceful, lots of hills and really great landscapes.
People are so friendly if somewhat shy. =P
Lovely place to hide busy world.
If you ever get change, go and visit there.

Download it and use as Wallpaper. :nod:

I live in Finland, and I think our country is very beautiful. ^^
Here's not that much lakes in Southern-Ostrobothnia, but here's a lot of big fields and lowlands. :)
Very pretty shot, I love the colors.
Nory-Chan Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2011
Hmh, i don't know if i have been in Tohmajärvi. I live in Southern-Karelia, so there's no more than couple hours to there.
You know, Ruokolahti is also a beautiful place in summer :)

This is a nice picture, really brings out the summer feeling. And the colours of water... I love the spring and the summertime in Finland~
And I just had to comment on this, since I live in Tohmajärvi! :D I was so suprised to see this picture.
AncientCat Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2008
Yay! Thank you!
You're second person from, Tohmajärvi, who's commenting my photo. Great! :bounce:
I'm glad you like the photo.
I liked great deal of your village. Nice and beautiful.
I had a change to make a short visit in your country last year.
Hoping I can come again some time.

Shadowcat-chan Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2007
Pffft, I'm from Tohmajärvi. :D Nice shot. ^^
AncientCat Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2007
What! :o For real?
Lucky you... *Envy*
Shadowcat-chan Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2007
Yes, for real. I live quite near to the centrum.. I know a few other people too who're from Tohmajärvi in here. ^^
Eh, I'd prefer living in Joensuu or Turku..
AncientCat Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2007
Yup. It usually is prefers other place, then birthplace.
Only when you've been away enough long time, you realize the value.
I was born in Asia (Hong Kong), moved into Japan in age of 7, and then into Scotland in age of 15.
For long time I felt that I don't belong to everywhere, but now I miss Asia so much, I sometimes can't stand it...*sob* At the same time I wish I could return to Scotland, but I really CAN'T stand my family...:XD:
Shadowcat-chan Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2007
It's not like I hate this place or something like that, but I just love cities. Not very big cities tough, but little ones. ^^ Just like Joensuu.. I've always lived in Tohmajärvi, tough my parents are originally from Kitee. And I visit Joensuu nearly every week. ^^;
You'll just have to go visit Asia. ^^
AncientCat Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2007
I think I've visited in Joensuu some years ago.
There were river flowing thru' the city and lovely wooden buildings in riverbank.
Nice little island in the middle of the river.
Really nice city. It's easy to understand why you like it. :)
About visiting in Asia...well I'd love to, but I'm afraid I'd never be able to come back again...:XD:
Not so bad thing tho'...If I'll go into Hon Kong, my friends and relatives in Japan expect me to visit in there too etc...
*sigh* I haven't got enough time. And to confess; maybe not enough money either...:XD:
Shadowcat-chan Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2007
Yea, I love it too. ^^ And it's so green for a city..
Why should you come back? xD
AncientCat Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2007
Yeah,haha....If things only would e so simple^~^

Wait a were in Finland? It looks nice there!
AncientCat Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2007
Yup! I spent fewdays with Cat-san's friend in there.
Don't know what like cities are, for I had only three days.
So I only got quick peek to Tohmajärvi and Kitee in eastern borderin Northen-Carelia, but yeah, it is very lovely in there
