I just stumbled accross a great introduction to Finland. It’s always nice to know a few facts about places you are visiting and this blog provides plenty of those. It also shows how good a well written blog can be. Maybe one day…

If you’re interested here’s some more good links…

Not sure I like the sound of Finnish beer..

“That night, in a converted public toilet, I ordered a pint, then asked the barman to keep an eye on it while I went to withdraw my life savings from the cashpoint. Any thought of a one-man Withnail-esque road trip had evaporated as quickly as the barman could say: ‘That’ll be £5 for the beer, sir.’ “
