Cottage trip, Tampere

Last week I went to Tampere for cottaging. This is my first time I went to some cottage in summer. On Friday after office I took the train and I reached Tampere around 6 PM. Shamim vi came to station to pick me up. From the station we went to the cottage straight. I found them playing football and I started playing right away. We were quite many people, around 35 and we took 8 cottages in total. Everyday we played football or volleyball, took lunch around 2 PM, rested a bit in the afternoon and they again played football or volleyball followed by swimming in the lake. The day ends with gossip and different card games such as marriage, spade trump, auction bridge or poker. I stayed there for 2 nights and came back on Sunday afternoon. It was a nice trip full of fun. Let's have a look at few pictures. I didn't take many.

The lake view was nice
