What are we going to do

The world has slowed down in these unpredictable times. Come spend a relaxed time in my small hometown with a population of 40 000 people.

We walk at the best preserved Nordic wooden town of Rauma. We imagine how the seaman's family lived in the Kirsti's house by the Rauma river. We see the pull-out beds at an upper-class home right after. A lady demonstrates how to make a fine bobbin lace at the nearby lace shop.

We take a car ride to see the rest of Rauma. We enjoy the spectacular view of the city with a coffee cup at the water tower or the roof of the shopping center.

We pass the private house areas, the local industries, the harbor and the railway, as I explain their importance in the city history. I am indeed a licensed tour guide.

We stop at a 5* camping area, to see its historical building and the wooden sailing ships.

We eat the traditional Rauma food 'lapskoussi' and talk to the locals.

I drive you safely back to your hotel.

About Rauma guide Kairi - the Doer

A licensed tour guide helps to spend a memorable relaxed time in a small wooden town of Finland. You do not want this to be a history class, but you want all the fun details from the past.

I bring you to the life it was 100 years ago. Imagine living the life of a seaman's wife. Raising the kids alone for many many years. How do you manage financially? What is your day like without an electricity? I mix the past and present, to get you there.

I was a tour guide in Tallinn, Estonia over 20 years ago. After graduating the university, I did a lot of cooperation with businesses and finally moved to live in Rauma because of my family.

I want to concentrate to only what is important. What makes me and you feel good about this day. We can be spontaneous. If it rains, we explore the city indoors. We meet and talk to other local people. We drive around on a car, if you are tired.

I am an authorized Rauma tour guide. It took me a year to study Rauma history, dates, houses, monuments and business life. But I am especially fond of old pictures and people in there.

As a foreigner I see what is different compared to other countries, other nationalities. As a former journalist, I know how to put these thoughts into words.

I have a car (and a taxi bus with a driver on request).
I can guide in several languages and I have a microphone on request.
