This summer, I went to Hanko for the first time. That is a place Finns call as a Hamptons of the Finland. White sand and long beaches, luxury boats and beautiful villas. The place is small and about 8 506 people live there. There is a little shopping street and nice local restaurants (located in an old factory building!!!). We went to eat the most delicious pasta to Hangon Makaronitehdas – they just do the best pasta (not kidding). Luckily my best friend had heard of that place. I could go there anytime and write just a bit – or buy a huge villa and finish the entire book.
Going to Hanko is also easy. Just take a train from Helsinki with one train change (in Karjaa).
