It’s time to leave again. After leaving Abisko we met up at the old homestead outside of Pajala, where every year there’s the Pääjärvi family reunion. About 30 make it – young and old. It’s also time for the Pajala market where we meet even more friends and relatives. 


Now it’s time the leave and get back our garden. 

Everything and everywhere is spiffied up and closed until others come for a weekend of calm later. 

Here are some pictures from the after. 

Our room


The bathhouse/sauna where hours are spent getting a super steam bath and listening to stories of the oldtimers. 


The woodshed with newly cut wood. 


The side of the house that got repaired and a new facade, damaged in a winter stormed. 


Where the tent camp was. 

The fire pit where evenings are often spent, grilling sausage, singing, dancing and veiwing the midnight sun – when it’s not raining too much. 

Kind of calm and quiet now. Only the surrrrr of mosquitoes (not so many this year).
