What comes to mind when I wonder what Finnishness entails

What Finnishness is to me

In this post I share some of my thoughts about Finnishness and what it is to me: nature, sauna and people.


In this blog post I will share some thoughts of Finnishness. When I think about Finland what comes to my mind are the beautiful nature with all four seasons, the sauna and the people with their attitude and the sense of humour. Those are things that I like most in Finland.

Quick introduction about Finland

Happiest population in the world, home of the Santa Claus, winter wonderland, days when the sun never sets, days when the sun won't rise at all, more saunas than there's people... These are very common things that people usually mention when they are talking about Finland. All of these might sound insane and surreal to some people but actually they are all true. Here's a quick introduction about Finland.

Finnishness for me

For me Finnishness and Finland is all about peace. The peaceful nature and safe society have created an excellent environment for me to grow as a person and explore my purposes in life.
