9 years and counting

It has been just over 10 years since I first set foot on Finnish soil (25.5-25.6.1998) and just over 9 since I moved here permanently. In fact, I arrived here on July 22, 1999. I'm still in love with my new home country and don't have any plans to leave it anytime soon.

As I was camping this last weekend, an idea came to me: to blog about my life, perspective and just general happenings here in Finland. I figure that since I have lived here for this long, that I probably have quite a good deal of insight and info about the country. At least I have my own opinions on how things are. (Don't we all?)

So, that's how this blog was born.
