My experience of Finnishness


What does it mean to be Finnish??

Being Finnish is an oppurtunity, a jump that you make in the dark, a proud but humble creature with no big dreams. Being Finnish is enjoying your life with that you have at the moment, not worrying of tomorrow.  Going to the woods and enjoy that -30°C and knowing that you’ve got all sauna warm and ready when you come back home. Taking the most of our short but warm summers, nightless nights and swimming in any of those thousands of lakes we got in our beautiful land of hope. We like to be by ourselves quietly but when we don’t we go to “TORILLE” to be so opposite of being a Finn that it’s indeed being Finnish.
