Being an Italian on the road or a person who travels with an Italian can be a big challenge. Not because of the hot, Italian temper, as you might guess, but because of their extremely picky attitude when it comes to food (and beaches, but that’s another story).

Once upon a time, there was a king. His name was King Gustav III of Sweden. Many moons ago, he declared Hartola, a small municipality in Päijänne Tavastia region, a sovereign parish. He named it after his son Gustav Adolf, and that’s why locals called it “Kustavus”. After many long years, Hartola became part of Finland and experienced its royal revival when they proclaimed it an official Royal Parish in 1987, the only one in the republic of Finland.
