Travels in Finland and abroad

Mainau – flower island / Mainau – isla de flores / Mainau – île aux fleurs / Mainau- ilha das flores

In English:

Mainau – flower island

We have made many road trips to Germany during our life. Every time our trips started from Helsinki to Travemünde on board of Ro-pax ferries Finnpartner or Finnlady. These ships take trucks, cars, vans and passengers. Cabins of different sizes and prices are available for passengers. Traveling by boat is like a vacation, relaxing, eating and drinking. The meals are delicious and are big enough for everyone. I remember especially desserts from these trips. Weight rises easily and dieting is a different story.

Our final destination In 2007, was the town of Lindau. It is situated by the big lake called Lake Constance. In German its name is Bodensee. Lake Constance has borders with Germany, Switzerland and Austria. We drove around it and one our main stops was in Mainau. Also, we drove to Switzerland and Liechtenstein and we visited to some small towns by the lake. If you ever make a road trip in Germany, then remember that Mainau is absolute worth for a visit. I shot my photos with these cameras: DMC-LX1 (8.4 Megapixel 16:9 aspect CCD) and DMC-FX7 (5.0 Megapixel CCD). When reading the number of megapixels, you will laugh – I presume. You have to remember that in In the old days, these cameras were the top of pocket cameras. Nowadays some cell phones have 108 Megapixel! Think about it how development has proceeded.

Welcome to travel around the world with my music!

After travelling in Japan, in USA and in Finland. Now we jump to Sweden. I selected you Twistin’ Patricia presented by Jerry Williams and The Violents.

Mainau – isla de flores

Hemos realizado muchos viajes por carretera a Alemania durante nuestra vida. Cada vez que nuestros viajes partían de Helsinki a Travemünde a bordo de los ferries Ro-pax Finnpartner o Finnlady. Estos barcos llevan camiones, automóviles, furgonetas y pasajeros. Hay cabinas de diferentes tamaños y precios disponibles para los pasajeros. Viajar en barco es como unas vacaciones, relajarse, comer y beber. Las comidas son deliciosas y lo suficientemente grandes para todos. Recuerdo especialmente los postres de estos viajes. El peso aumenta fácilmente y la dieta es una historia diferente.

Our final destination in 2007 was the city of Lindau. Está situado junto al gran lago llamado Lago de Constanza. En alemán su nombre es Bodensee. El lago de Constanza tiene fronteras con Alemania, Suiza y Austria. Lo rodeamos y una de nuestras paradas principales fue en Mainau. Además, fuimos en coche a Suiza y Liechtenstein y visitamos algunos pueblos pequeños junto al lago. Si alguna vez hace un viaje por carretera en Alemania, recuerde que Mainau merece una visita. Tomé mis fotos con estas cámaras: DMC-LX1 (CCD de aspecto 16: 9 de 8.4 megapíxeles) y DMC-FX7 (CCD de 5.0 megapíxeles). Al leer la cantidad de megapíxeles, se reirá, supongo. Tienes que recordar que en los viejos tiempos, estas cámaras eran lo mejor de las cámaras de bolsillo. ¡Hoy en día algunos teléfonos móviles tienen 108 megapíxeles! Piense en cómo ha procedido el desarrollo.

En francais:

Mainau – île aux fleurs

Nous avons fait de nombreux voyages en voiture en Allemagne au cours de notre vie. Chaque fois que nos voyages ont commencé d’Helsinki à Travemünde à bord des ferries Ro-pax Finnpartner ou Finnlady. Ces navires prennent des camions, des voitures, des fourgonnettes et des passagers. Des cabines de différentes tailles et prix sont disponibles pour les passagers. Voyager par bateau, c’est comme des vacances, se détendre, manger et boire. Les repas sont délicieux et assez copieux pour tout le monde. Je me souviens surtout des desserts de ces voyages. Le poids augmente facilement et suivre un régime est une autre histoire.

Notre destination finale En 2007, était la ville de Lindau.Elle est situé au bord du grand lac appelé lac de Constance. En allemand, son nom est Bodensee. Le lac de Constance a des frontières avec l’Allemagne, la Suisse et l’Autriche. Nous l’avons contourné et l’un de nos principaux arrêts était à Mainau. De plus, nous sommes allés en Suisse et au Liechtenstein et avons visité quelques petites villes au bord du lac. Si vous allez faire un voyage en voiture en Allemagne, rappelez-vous que Mainau mérite d’être visitée. J’ai pris mes photos avec ces appareils photo: DMC-LX1 (CCD 8,4 mégapixels 16: 9 aspect) et DMC-FX7 (CCD 5,0 mégapixels). En lisant le nombre de mégapixels, vous rirez – je présume. Vous devez vous rappeler que dans l’ancien temps, ces caméras étaient le top des caméras de poche. De nos jours, certains téléphones portables ont 108 mégapixels! Pensez à la manière dont le développement s’est déroulé.

  1. The German “Federal Garden Show”, being called simply BUGA in German, will take place hopefully despite COVID19 in Thuringia next year at the city of Erfurt and many other places in the region (as well in villages and around castles nearby). Here is an English link:

    For flower lovers here in the country a must.

  7. Hi Matti! That was glorious – I’ve not been to Mainau since I was a teenager around 45 years ago, so I’d almost forgotten how glorious it is. I love the classic cars too. Were they on some sort of event? There’s some fantastic looking machinery there.

  12. So you visited “Die Mainau”! 🙂 Believe it or not: I’ve never been there. It was on the itinerary for our trip to southern Germany which we had planned for August this year and then had to cancel because of Covid. But we still hope to be able to see that wonderful island.
    Take care, my friend,

  15. It would have been awesome to welcome you to our little country in 2007!
    I have been to the isle of Mainau quite a few times since it is not too far away for a day trip. The last time was in 2016 when I sang at a wedding in that church you shared pictures of in your post. Unfortunately, there was a long and heavy thunderstorm before and during the wedding. But it was a beautiful kind of wedding anyway.

      Wonderful memories Erika. Me it was surprise, that so many visitors knew this place and have visited there. We visited Vaduz, Liechtenstein, but only few hours. I have some photos, not many, but maybe someday I’ll present them. We only drink some coffee and remember its price. Thank you visiting and commenting.

      • The country is not so big. Of coures, it has some more beautiful and historic places to visit but I think the capital with the castle is the tourist magnet, first and foremost.
        You know, many years back, when my parents drove us through Europe in our motorhome, people thought the “FL” on the license plate means “Finnland”.
        Thank you and have a nice day too!

      Je suis heureux de ton commentaire et et que tu as écouté la musique, que j’ai sélectionnée. Elle différait des précédents en ce que c’était le Twist rapide, que j’avais entendu quand j’étais jeune. La prochaine fois, tu entendras très belle mélodie française. J’ai quelques chanteurs français préférés, donc le choix était difficile, mais je suis sûr que cela satisfera oreilles des auditeurs. Je ne connais pas de chanteurs français contemporains. Le seul que j’ai entendu à la radio finlandaise est Manu Chao. Merci pour votre commentaire. Bonne journée!

  21. L’ Ile de la Mainau mérite bien son nom de l’Ile aux fleurs et en particulier les Dahlias . C ‘ est très beau. C ‘ est sûrement la perle du Lac de Constance.
    Tous mes compliments pour vos beaux voyages, Matti et ton épouse..

    ps : Juste à ce moment le 11 Novembre à 22h10 je regarde un peu le match de football France-Finlande . Is sont au milieu du match ( la mi-temps ) et la Finlande pour l’instant domine l’équipe de France 2-0

    • Bonjour Michel.

      C’est la huitième merveille du monde que la Finlande a remporté la France en foot-ball! Mainau mérite une visite si possible! Merci pour votre commentaire élogieux. Dans mon prochain article, nous voyageons à Paris et y visitons l’endroit que nous aimons. Aussi mon coin musique propose de la musique française! Tout le meilleur à votre famille et à vous!

      P.S.

      J’ai testé CanalBlog et je l’ai trouvé facile à utiliser. J’ai choisi le format de blog avec trois côlons. L’écriture est facile. Vous pouvez écrire directement dans le message ou copier du texte à partir de Word. Le formatage du texte est facile. Vous pouvez changer la taille des polices, changer le style de police, les coloriser etc. Juste ce que vous voulez faire – facilement.

      L’insertion de photos est également facile. Importez-les simplement depuis votre ordinateur. Le seul inconvénient est que vous ne pouvez importer que cinq photos à la fois. Il existe de nombreux modèles prêts à l’emploi à sélectionner. Le test est facile, car vous pouvez toujours revenir à votre test précédent, simplement en sélectionnant. Jusqu’à présent, j’ai fait cinq messages. Deux premiers étaient de vrais tests, mais les autres sont de bons messages.

      Si vous souhaitez publier des articles en deux langues, écrivez-les simplement. J’ai décidé de faire mon post uniquement en français et de publier un nouveau post une fois par semaine. Il me sera peut-être possible d’ajouter l’anglais après avoir examiné cela plus en détail. Je veux apprendre plus de français, car je suis autodidacte. Merveilles de notre monde Si vous le souhaitez, vous pouvez y laisser votre commentaire. Maintenant, deux Français ont laissé leur commentaire sur mon blog. Ce serait bien. Merci.

      Bonne journée mon ami.

  23. I enjoyed this post and the beautiful flowers Matti – wow, just wow for Mainau/Flower Island. I think that would be a treat for the eyes to see all these colorful blooms – even the pigs were bright colored and fit right in. I was laughing at what you said about the camera – for many years, my Kodak pocket camera was always with me … in a pouch on my belt, or in a purse … never far from my side. I had to say goodbye when the door to the film compartment got loose and was letting in light. I listened to your song Darling Nelly Grey by Jerry Williams & The Violents. The photos were eye candy and the music was ear candy. You have captured the spirit of both in this post Matti. Have a good day tomorrow.

    • Hi Linda.

      I love your praising comment. Thank you listening to Williams & The Violents. In their time they were famous in Scandinavia! Next post brings you to France by photos and by music!

      Have a great day!

      • You are welcome Matti – you deserve those comments for those stunning photos … I would not know where to look first. I saw there was a Scandinavian reference on the YouTube link. I will look forward to seeing France by photos and music … France is on my bucket list hopefully down the road after retirement and safe travels are happening. It could be a long time. I took French for years as I told you, but remember so little of it, I’m embarrassed to admit my years of study. Enjoy the rest of your day Matti.

  28. I really enjoyed this post, Sartenada. Great sense of humour and amazing photography. I also remember the days when cameras were something different compared to now. I had a Canon point and shoot that was 10MP, and these days…my Canon point-and-shoot can produce similar results to a DSLR 😂 It is great you save these photos from way back, and they are very crisp.

    Looks like a lovely trip around the big Lake Constance, and there was a lot for you to see and do in Mainau. The Flower Island had some stunning colourful flowers and looks like your orange jacket was a good match 😀 The vintage cars look very eye-catching as well, and quite a few of them to look at – and the automotive industry in Germany is big. The interior of that building has some intricate historical architecture. Beautiful.

    Hope you are doing well and stay safe 🙂

    • Hi Mabel.

      Thank you leaving your praising comment. My orange jacket was so called wind stopping jacket. They were popular in those days in my country. I have all my photos stored on two backup devices and computer. They start from 2004. Well-organized and having describing names and the date of photos taken. Easy to find. From time to time, I change my computers wall paper. Couple of days ago, I changed it with the photo from 2008 showing activities in our garden.

      Happy Sunday!

  31. I love riding on ferry boats. Usually I don’t have a car and will walk on. Amazing pictures as always. A have a lower mega pixel camera that is just a 12 year old point and shoot. It is all I really need. Those big trees on Mainau are magnificent. I am glad they are left standing to be enjoyed. Thank you for sharing! 😀📷

    • Hi Carl.

      Those point and me hoot cameras were great invention. Nowadays, we use merely our phones, depending where we are. Yesterday for example I took with my digital camera, because I wanted to shoot closeup photos of an old traditional windmill. Thank you commenting.

      Happy new week.

  32. I really enjoyed all the photos. We have stayed on Lake Constance several times but have not been to Mainau as my husband can not do the walking required. Nice to be able to see it through your camera lens.

  34. The gardens look BEAUTIFUL! That peacock was definitely a favorite, plus the painted pigs. But I have to agree with you the desserts when you’re on vacation are so good that you even forget to take a picture of them. Ha! 🙂 That song you got definitely has that rock and roll vibe with a slick guitar in there. I hadn’t heard of him before, thanks for posting. Have a good one.
