    Pretty Fly - Harmless but irritating

    A summer in Åland without mosquitoes, wasps or ticks is nearly impossible! Beware of ticks especially when you pick mushrooms or berries in the wild. They are hard to spot and you may or may not feel it immediately. Get it off quickly but make sure you get the head out as well. Bring adequate supply of mosquito/insect repellant as well as after bite!

    Eckerö Line ferries

    Yikes! What a horrible way to spend two hours. The ferry was crowded. Most of the people on it were pushy and rude. It took all of my strength not to fire at least one bastard through the window. Worse yet, they're not even going to Åland! They get off the ferry, turn around and get right back on. All they wanted was the duty-free booze. Idiots. And, you have seats that are set up for 4 people, taken up by two (all over the boat) who won't let you sit down. The cafeteria seating is jammed with people who aren't even eating so you end up eating your lunch on the floor. Class acts, the passengers on this ferry.
