It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Finland. I'm also pretty keen on writing and taking pictures, and this combination has resulted in a growing list of blog posts on the topic. Since these have been some of the most popular pages of this site, I thought it might be worth collecting them here.

As I've always said, I'm no expert on Finland by any means, just an enthusiastic visitor. But if there's anything you'd particularly like me to right about next, let me know!

  1. Why I Love Finland - My first post about Finland. The title is quite self-explanatory; this is my attempt to explain what all the fuss is about!

  2. Finnish Design - This is a more focused piece looking at Finish design, covering some of my favourite designers and creations.

  3. Spring Holiday - This describes my visit to Finland in May 2014 and covers the Vappu (Mayday) celebrations, ice hockey and a trip to Helsinki as well as the island fortress of Suomenlinna. Oh, and mämmi, of course.

  4. Learning Finnish - This is my attempt to share some of the things I have learned while trying to learn Finnish. There's a bit about why you might try to learn, some guidance for potential students, a few peculiarities of Finnish and finally a few useful words to help you on your way.
