      is the 9.30am bus from Turku a good option? according to their site we'll be at the airport at 11.40 but has anyone done this route? is it really 2 hours and 10 minutes as they say or the traffic may cause big delay?

      Taxi from Turku to Naantaly and back

      by manuna Online Now Feb 8, 2010 at 5:42 AM

      Is it possible to take a taxi between the two cities? What will be approximate charge? I want to be flexible with my time-table and want to save money. There will be 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children. But my elder son will be 16, so I guess he is considered as an adult) So I think that may be taxi will be a better decision then Moomibus? We are planning to visit Moomiworld and Vaski island in one day and be back in Turku in 19:30. Is it real or this is too much?
      Thank you.

      Viking Lines says there is no possibility to connect the camper on electricity nor gas?
      Are there other possibilities to cross the Baltic sea or any tricks to keep the food cool?

    • Big Blue Marble Pen Pal

      by GregBradley Online Now Jan 24, 2007 at 9:06 PM

      I know this is a long shot, but I had a pen pal from Turku in the 1970's. I was put in contact with him through a television show in the U.S. called The Big Blue Marble. I can not remember his name. All I remember is that he had a little brother and both of them had the blondest of hair, which I am sure is not uncommon. I was living in Oregon, USA at the time. What is the population of Turku? Is it so large that I would have no chance of finding my old pen pal?
