We’ve been invited to spend the summer working in Finland at two artist residencies: first on the island of Kökar at the Åland Archipelago Guest Artist Residence and then in the city of Turku at the Arte Sumu Artists’ Residency, where we’ll be putting together an exhibition that will open at the Galleria Titanikin.

Before we get to Finland, we’re meeting up with Murray’s sister, who has lived in Germany for the past ten years, in Berlin. We’ll travel through northern Germany to her home in Bremen and then Hamburg before leaving for Helsinki, where we’ll spend a few days before going to the islands.

We’re hoping to work in trips to see the northern lights, Tallinn and the Hermitage in St Petersburg. Any other suggestions or must-sees as we plan our trip to Northern Europe, the Baltics and Scandinavia?
