A large wooden football (soccer ball) rolled into our neighbourhood Friday evening. It rolled back out today. It’s a custom-designed and -built Finnish traveling sauna created by a charming and talented national champion triathlete named Samuli Keisus.
I saw Samuli about four months ago parked on the Paseo with a more traditional-looking Finnish sauna (although also on wheels), but he was gone before I had the chance to check things out. This time, however, I was on my way home from the gym when he pulled in right near our building to spend the weekend. We talked a bit and Sunday night I returned to give it a try. I loved every minute of it.

Samuli’s construction firm (check it out here) specializes in, among other things, custom saunas — for sale and rent. He’s been traveling Europe to promote his saunas. I paid all of 2 euros for more than a half hour of bliss; and I was invited to jump in the sea and return to the sauna a couple of times. I might still be there if I hadn’t already been late for dinner.
