A Closing Chapter: Where the Sun Sets.

As you may or may not know, I am currently still in Kuopio, the 8th largest town in Finland. I can’t believe that I almost made it. This time one year ago, I thought to myself: “Oh Jen, is this the right choice? Do you really want to spend one year in Finland?” And I guess, today, I can reply to myself. For sure it was the right decision! Life in Finland has been an on-going roller coaster. But I guess that’s anyone’s life abroad, isn’t it?

It is beginning of May and summer is approaching really quick. It is funny to realise that a few weeks ago, there was still snow around and I was still wearing warm jackets and hunting for northern lights. Now I am struggling to face the warm temperatures.I am glad I am still here, as currently, I have been enjoying the beautiful landscapes of Mother Nature that Finland has to offer.

The sunrises and sunsets are unbelievably beautiful and the sky is bright for around 18-20 hours per day. Soon, there will be the white nights in the northern countries, which means that there will be no complete darkness.

The last few days, I have been and will be spending my evenings enjoying the the quiet, the peace and beauty of Finland.
