Sweden

We Finns have a strange relationship with Sweden. They’re our dearest enemy (which, we think, dates back to those years when they used to rule over us), but at the same time, they’re quite likely our favourite neighbours.

  • Last weekend we decided to celebrate Tiia’s birthday by going on a Silja Line cruise from Helsinki to Stockholm. This time, we ended up taking the “day in Stockholm” kind, since our all time favourite band Poets of the Fall took the stage on the first night of…

  • Hey, lookidat, we’ve become (somewhat) active YouTubers! We’ve had our channel for a while, but we’ve been pretty inactive with it so far. Not anymore! So, we invite you to take a peek at our strangely happy lives filled with roadtrips, red carpets, adventures to filming locations and amazing…
