We opted for a steamship cruise instead of the more modern ships available. Crew very accomodating and spoke good English. We even got alook at the two cylinder 200HP engine. The boat has been cuising Lake Paijane since 1906. Enjoyed the waterside views.

Lunch was served but we decided to manage with coffee & icecream. We enjoyed ourselves on upper decklovely with scenery and sunshine. Staff was friendly. Captain told stories about places we... More
