Summer in Finland is:

  • People walking barefoot on the sidewalk
  • Air conditioning on the bus even when it’s only +15 and you are freezing
  • Picnics in the park
  • children taking a bath in the lake
  • walking in the woods

    • eating wild raspberries, blueberries and strawberries while walking home
    • enjoying sauna. Nobody was around during summer and it was amazing
    • having sauna twice in the same evening and falling asleep feeling as light as a feather
    • the sun. It’s such a simple thing but the whole world seems different when everything is illuminated
    • a seagull eating a dead squirrel
    • pancakes with maple syrup every Sunday
    • flowers and green grass
    • spotting rabbits everywhere as soon as the sun goes down
    • buying woolen socks for winter
