Ten Strange and Interesting Facts About Finland

19 Jan

While doing some research I stumbled across this great article that I’d never seen before – I thought I had read everything Finland-related in the internet! I also didn’t know about number one or number three – and I have had a Finnish guy ask for a bottle opener once outside a club, but we didn’t have one so he used the metal pole of the rope barrier instead! Clever.

From that article it links to another one about Finnish ingenuity and it’s worth a read so I’m linking it here too.

I took advantage of another bright day and went for a short walk around the neighbourhood – it was wonderful to be out in the sun listening to the birds sing and admiring the way the sun fell on the snow.

    We loved Oulu when we were there a few years ago. I was just in Heksinki on the weekend, for some very cold weather. The city looked beautiful covered in snow, so I could forgive it for the cold.
    Have a great time in Finland.

      It’s an easy city to love – do you mind me asking if you visited in summer or winter? I love your Helsinki pictures, they’re always beautiful =)
      Thanks for stopping by, I hope you get to visit Finland again soon!
