Hi Theo, thanks for arranging such a fantastic holiday for us - what an amazing place the Aland archipeligo is!! The three places we stayed were just fantastic - each had their own charm and provided us access to all parts of the islands - the last place, in Kvambo was particularly charming with wonderful hosts and if you were arranging another similar trip I would be tempted to have one less night in Havsvidden and one extra night in Kvambo. My luggage did not make the plane at Heathrow but the Finnair staff in Mariehamn were very polite and helpful, providing me with 70Euros to buy essentials and ensuring my bags arrived two days later. We had a problem with the transmission on the car after two days but again the car hire company were really helpful and switched cars for us - thankfully nowhere is very far away on Aland. Wonderful scenary and friendly people, lots of peace and quiet and endless hours of daylight! A great way to celebrate my brothers 50th birthday. Thank you
