This blog contains my personal view of what it’s like to be a Finn. We are a bit shy and quiet around new people. But once we get to know each other better, we’ll be really forward and loud. We like to party, drink and go to festivals. On the other hand, we also like the silence of nature. Finland is a country with amazing forests and lakes. There is nothing better than having weekend at summer cottage by the lake with the people you like to be with. And for some reason fishing and having a beer after sauna gives me a peace of mind and I think I’m not the only one that feels this way.
I would also like to bring up sports that are also a big thing in being Finnish. We have a big amount of top tier athletes in different sports. But I think the best part is that you don’t even have to play anything yourself. When Leijonat was playing at the world cup or Huuhkajat finally got to Euros everybody was watching TV and cheering for team Finland. I myself like to go snowboarding and play football and ice hockey with my friends. Sports connects us and brings us together.
