About Me

Welcome to The Finniot; a blog that reports on Finland's unique (and sometimes really weird!) culture, exciting events and current affairs. And Moomins, of course! There's a lot of things to report about those hippo like trolls who enjoy life to its fullest.

After visiting Finland one weekend in 2014, I fell in love with the country's straight-talking culture that promoted kindness and toughness with equal measure.

At that point, I never thought I would ever make a home here. In early 2019, however, I left my steady job in the UK and boarded a one way Finnair flight from London to Helsinki. It was a choice I wouldn't regret. Finland was as warm and welcoming as I had remembered, and I felt like I had found a permanent home before I had unpacked my suitcase.

I'm not the only one who couldn't resist the allure of Finnish life. With the country attracting the attention of the global media for its natural beauty and urban style, more and more people are taking notice of this Nordic gem. As a British copywriter living in Helsinki, I get a massive kick out of writing about the exciting events and cultural quirks this fascinating country has to offer.

Welcome to enjoy Finland with me!
