Finland, my homeland

There are four things that are important to me in Finland and those are security, nature, technology and quality of education. These things are also held in high regard in the Finnish culture.

Finland is known for the low corruption rates in the leadership and public sector and there is a high trust for law enforcement.

The quality of education in Finland is known across the globe.

The beautiful Finnish nature brings in tourists from all corners of the world during all seasons, especially to Lapland.

Four seasons.

With the Finnish economy slowly growing, more and more start-ups are popping up, mostly within the technological fields. New and innovative ideas are being born in Finland every year.

 

What to do in Finland? I mostly enjoy the summer time. We have a lot of outdoor activities like festivals and sports, if the weather is good (it usually isn’t).

During summers I spend some time at my cottage on the coast near Vaasa, enjoying the beautiful archipelago.

During the proper winter (Jan-Mar) we will have a lot of snow and sub-zero degrees centigrade.

There’s a lot of sport activities that can be done during this time as well as walk on the frozen lakes.
