From Day 1, I felt more than at home. Riitta, Tuomas’ mom had made a baked porridge for breakfast (fantastic), Tuomas and I explored Helsinki by bike, (finding the weirdest statue ever), and for dinner we had a traditional Finnish dinner or Reindeer, mashed potatoes, and ligonberries. It was fantastic!!! (Sorry Rudolph). Their house is only 200m from the sea, so I was able to wake up every morning go for a little walk and see the sunrise, basking in the glory of God’s Creation.
In the four days that I was there, I saw, I went and I did life with my friends. All in all, Finland Rocks!!! I would recommend that anyone and everyone travels there during the summer months. From great beaches, to wonderful wilderness, a different food culture, and of course Saunas (which I did not do this time). It is truly a land of Milk and Honey for recuperation and rest.
Until the next trip,
