This Lempaala Bed and Breakfast is the one we frequent often simply since my father and mother-in-law live here. Each time we drive by Lempäälä we'll stop by to say 'Hi', and most likely Sirkka will have something warm in the oven. She'll woe us to come in and eat some freshly baked goods, warm porridge or a full meal.
These wonderful people have been teaching me the Finnish language for over 12 years. They do not give up on me. They know learning the language is tough. Visitors are welcome any time of day. Seppo and Sirkka have seven children. All of them are grown up and living in other towns in Finland.
Sirkkas breakfasts and other meals are a cross between Finnish Lapland and Estonian cuisine. -a very own unique blend of cooking. There is a bountiful selection of her dishes on the Finnish Food page.

Dear Sirkka, thank you so much for looking after us so well earlier this week. We really enjoyed our trip to Lempaala, the surroundings were very beautiful and unspoilt and very quiet. Everyone was very friendly towards us and made us feel welcome even though we don't speak any Finnish, also the tourist information were really helpful.
We really enjoyed the cycling and definitely recommend cycling in the Lempaala area. We loved the accommodation and especially the lovely food that you provided. We were very blessed that we had warm and sunny weather during our stay which meant we could sit outside during our cycle rides. --Chris, Veronica and Janny

See what a barber shop in Finland used to look like, shoes made of paperstring made by the shoemaker, candies, cigarettes, and coffee made of dandelion roots. Back from the days when the country was surviving WWII. They even have the oldest barber shop in Finland.
I find it interesting to go into these shops to see how tools were designed and used in the old days.
