Wednesday 6. December 2017 is a significant day for us Finns as it is the day that marks the 100th anniversary of our independence. It is the highlight of our year that has been filled with celebrations to mark the occasion.

There are many great things I love about this country, one of the biggest being how this is one of the best places in the world to have a family. My daughter will get practically free medical and dental care, free top level daycare and education all throughout primary school, high school and university. It’s a wonderful country to be a mother in.

Another big love of mine in this land is the nature. I have therefore selected postcards from Finland, from me to you. Happy birthday, Finland, enjoy. The day is yours.
