What is life in Finland really like? Is living in Finland easier and more enjoyable than elsewhere? I can't answer these questions, but in this blog, I will share what my life is like in Finland. I will also tell you what I have experienced in 23 years.
In this blog post I ponder Finnishness from the perspective of its social dynamics and the contrast between its modesty and appeal. I address the question of why Finns keep coming back to Finland from travelling or living abroad.
First words to come to mind when thinking about 'Finnishness' is nature, snow, sauna, salmiakki, vodka, coffee (it may come as a surprise for some that Finnish people consume the most coffee in the world) and of course, ice hockey.
