Summer in Finland also means blueberry time. We went to one of the forests in our near (about 1km away) and found a place with lots of blueberries on the plants. I got bit by mosquitoes even when I had mosquito repellant on. Those bloody bastards are really tedious.

But that didn't stop us from collecting about 1.8 kg of bluberries. I honestly don't remember the time it took, but it was much fun anyway. 

We had to stop collecting because of heavy rain. Soon we will check back and collect again.
