A lot has happened in the last couple of months, in short: I took a short but awesome trip to Brussels, school life got a little bit hectic, and summer vacation started two days ago. I started a page on Facebook for my boss a while ago, its purpose is to share stories and news about Finland, specifically my life here in Helsinki. If you read Chinese, you are more than welcome to check it out, it’s called 漫步在芬蘭. I promise to write more often here as well. Summer in Finland is always something to look forward to. I think we all miss sunshine and beautiful flowers in the north :) Here are several magical moments from late April to May.
Today is Finnish Independence Day, hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää! In the morning, we headed to Nurmijärvi and watched the President attend the mass at Helsinki Cathedral. During the afternoon, we had Karelian stew and saw the military parade. For me, it was a very interesting experience, because Taiwan only has national day and the celebrations are a bit different. And it snowed today! Even though it wasn’t my first time seeing snow, I still feel very happy.
