Happy Independence Day Finland, my favourite country in the world, my home!! 🇫🇮 101 years ❤ Here I'm casually posing in Finnish forest, because that's what we do. I'm holding a bunch of birch twigs - we use them for hitting ourselves in the sauna. Yes, it is a real thing and it feels so goood.
This year has been remarkable for me for so many reasons, but also as I made the decision to move to other country 🇬🇧 I had intuitively known it for a long time and it was right decision for me. This however doesn't change the fact that I will always feel myself as a Finn and always will, even tho I communicate mainly in English nowadays (and that is a major change for identity, just saying..!). My roots will always be in the country of fresh, clean nature and the best people. 👫✨
Today I hope I could watch Linnan juhlat from Areena, tho I'm not sure if it works here... I'm also gonna raise the glass for my dear home, kippis! 🍻❤
