I have now been in Finland for 10 days, and I am enjoying my stay here very much.

I've been blessed by good weather and a sunny sky on both weekends, which allowed me to go on long walks by the seaside.

The land here is truly beautiful and when the sky is so clear, the light is magical: the water looks so intensely blue it almost brought tears to my eyes, and everything is enveloped in golden light.

I will be staying for another three weeks and I already dread the moment I will have to go back. I will have to manage to put this thought in the back of my mind so I can enjoy being here fully.
