Happy birthday Finland! Happy 95th!
Today is Finland's independence day. Ironically as I'm posting this entry very late it's actually no longer December 6th in Finland as there is a two hour time difference making it a bit past one A.M. in my home country.
I don't think I have any patriotic images of the Finnish flag I can post so I will post a few pictures from the last time I visited. You know you haven't gone back home in a while when you went, not with your ex, but with your exex.
Me and Karl went to Finland in February 2011.
It was absolutely freezing. I was wearing two pairs of pants, two coats, a scarf wrapped around my face and a hat and I was still cold. It was -28 Celsius. I had to put my hands to my face and breathe steam into my hands to keep my face somewhat warm.
Having had said this, I do miss the snow.
