Getting into summer cottage mode

Finns tend to have traditions in their summer cottages. For example, certain foods only cooked when in the cottage, a certain cottage outfit, a certain cottage radio channel. These traditions take you immediately from normal life mode into summer cottage mode, which is a state of pure bliss for us Finns.

My regular is to take my booty to the dock for some morning stretching. It is a perfect place for all senses. The unstable surface challenges your core. You improve your range of motion, increase circulation and calm your mind.Β The last Oscar-winning feature is the mosquito-free space, yay!

My dear readers, what are your traditions in the summer cottage?
