Since moving to Copenhagen I’ve felt more at ease with…
While showing my high school best friend, Steve, around Finland this summer we took a weekend trip down to Hanko, one of the most southern tips of mainland Suomi. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Finland and enjoyed it, so to my surprise showing Steve around my birth place opened my eyes to a new feeling of Pride in the beauty that is Finland and it’s different kind of paradise atmosphere that surfaces for a few weeks during the nordic ‘summer’. (I use this term loosely since summer can last anywhere between three hours to two weeks in Finland).
The first day when we arrived to the family country house we hopped on the boat and drove to Trelänningen, a small island in the middle of the sea where my parents used to row to when they first started dating. We had a small picnic at the quaint rock island and then headed back to the country house for good old fashioned Sauna and beer, while watching the cotton candy sunset.
Seeing as my summer has consisted of moving to Copenhagen to continue my studies and working every waking moment in order to be able to afford living in the said city, taking the weekend off to show off Finnish summer and it’s different kind of Paradise has me beaming with pride for being able to take part in the perfect summer weekend.
