Just a nice rock'd do, with a small plateau where I could build a little holiday shack!

cruising through i saw lots of dots with nothing on them. lots and lots. i, however, have a funny feeling there might be a reason there are nothing else than seagulls sitting around... like having a hell of a big ferry go by every few hours...

she's going slow here, but out miles away from nowhere they just steam along, leaving huge wakes slapping the daylights out of the shores.

Yes - lol - look how close that house in the foreground is to the water. Mind you, it's obviously in an elevated position. I'm sure that I could find a decent rock out of the thousands which're dotted around.

Now that'd be perfect for me ... but I'd be forever worrying about tsunamis!! Are there any more elevated ones??

    no tsunamis there. even the tides are pretty unspectacular, due to the narrows between denmark and sweden.

      sorry:

      However, foreigners are restricted from acquiring property in the Åland (Ahvenanmaa) archipelago, an autonomous, Swedish-speaking region of Finland. Foreigners need to obtain permission from the Finns to purchase property in Åland.


      that's odd... :shrug:

      With or without the bribe?

      Seriously though, it'd be beautiful to own one of those rocks and have it all to yourself.
