Finnish TV reports on ESIN

Finnish state TV station YLE reports that an European organisation for small islands – yes, ESIN – has its centre in Finland’s second smallest municipality: Kökar, and has plans for building an ESIN office there.

Vinter i skärgården / Winter in Stockholm archipelago

The first boat has arrived at the Tilos pier, while the Stockholm archipelago piers in the north of Europe are still surrounded by melting ice.

Thanks Nina Shaieste for the southern pic and Mats Lindfors for the northern one.

Happy New Year

A winter view from ESIN’s office in Karlby, Kökar. The temperature is just below minus and the sea is beginning to freeze. Wishing all islanders and island-friends a Happy New Year!
