Floating in front of the northenmost medieval stone castle still standing, the castle of Olavinlinna, in freezing winter weather looking at the sky and stars is an experience to remember! Even though it was -15C it was not cold at all, on the contrary, due to the fact that the current was quite strong and some swimming needed to be done upstreams. Afterwards Arto served us some hot juice which was nice.
