Island in the Finnish Archipelago Sea

Marvins was in a phase of life that was fated to have many low points. He desperately needed to find some peace and was delighted to receive an unusual offer to spend a few days relaxing on an island. Marvin's joy and hope grew when he decided to embark on a unique adventure on a remote, deserted island in Finland. In search of solitude and a break from the fast-paced world, he sought a place where there were no modern conveniences. The island of Järviö was a hidden gem in the vastness of the Baltic Sea.

The island in the Finnish Archipelago Sea is a quiet paradise hidden in the Baltic Sea. With its rocky shores, lush forests and crystal clear waters, it offers a tranquil escape from the modern world. Free from electricity, internet and bustling civilisation, it invites its visitors to reconnect with nature and find solace in its unspoilt beauty. When the sun sets, the island's starry skies offer a mesmerising spectacle, making it a perfect destination for those seeking simplicity and a true connection to nature.

Marvin left his busy city behind and embarked on a long journey. First by plane, then by car and finally by boat, guided by a "local" who knew the waters, especially the island, very well. As the boat sailed through the calm waves, the towering pines and rocky shores of Järviö came into view. The scenery was breathtaking and Marvin knew he had made the right decision.

When he stepped onto the island, Marvin was immediately struck by its unspoilt beauty. There were no signs of civilisation - no real buildings, no roads, no electricity pylons. Just nature in its purest form. He was greeted by the chirping of birds, the gentle rustling of leaves and the soothing lapping of waves on the shore. Marvin had not thought deeply about the island before. He was all the more surprised to find that it was basically a rocky landscape, which over time had been transformed by the flora and fauna into a beautiful island.

Marvin's accommodation was a simple wooden hut surrounded by a lush forest. The hut was equipped with the bare essentials: a firewood-fired cooker for cooking, candles for light and a comfortable bed. The owner of the island had left some supplies for him, including dried food, canned food and fresh water in containers. There was a well hidden in the forest, this provided precious and clear drinking water. The daily coffee was thus secured.

Marvin was very lucky with the weather. The sky was almost always blue, and clouds rarely appeared. The wind was refreshing and always came from the southwest, Marvin's actual home. As the days went by, Marvin got used to a peaceful rhythm. He woke up with the rising sun and breathed in the fresh, clean air. Without the internet to distract him, he immersed himself in the books he had brought with him and rediscovered the joy of reading. During the day, he explored the island, discovered hidden coves, walked along rocky cliffs and probably would have swum in the clear, cold waters of the Baltic Sea if the water hadn't been too cold for him.

At night, without artificial light, the sky offered a fascinating spectacle of stars. Marvin had never seen such a beautiful night sky. Constellations and shooting stars became his companions in the darkness. For hours he lay lost in thought in the moss of the forest and felt deeply connected to the universe.

After a few days, Marvin felt a deep sense of peace and contentment. He realised that without the modern distractions he could truly be present in every moment. He found joy in the simplest things - the warmth of the sun on his face, the sound of the waves crashing against the shore and the birds chirping in the trees.

The lack of electricity and internet allowed Marvin to connect with himself on a deeper level. He spent time meditating and reflecting on his life to gain clarity and insight. He wrote a journal (at least he tried to) in which he recorded his thoughts and experiences in the hope that he would remember this transformative journey for many years to come. Marvin was sure that a lot had happened in his life so far and that he could handle any situation and always found a solution. This time, however, it was too much for him, his own energy reserves were exhausted. Too many problems built up inside him in a very short time. The island forced him to rest, reflect and sort out his problems and worries.

When it was time to leave the island, Marvin felt a mixture of emotions. He was grateful for the opportunity to experience such solitude and natural beauty, but he also knew that he had not changed and that the old worries would await him when he returned. However, the tranquillity of the island had left an indelible impression on his soul, and he promised himself to take the lessons of it with him into the world of modernity.

When he returned to civilisation, Marvin felt rejuvenated and was more open to what was important in life. The desert island experience had taught him the value of simplicity, how important it is to switch off in order to connect, and how beautiful it is to accept the gifts of nature. But it was also clear to Marvin that his next journeys would take him to completely different worlds and that his worries could only be solved in his own world.
