What is Finnish culture? Have you ever wondered what life is like in Finland? Englishman John Swallow has lived in the land of saunas and sisu for fifteen years, enjoying the forests and lakes of the countryside and striving to achieve the famous Finnish work-life balance. A recent challenge led him to ponder the definition of Finnish culture and some of its key constituents. These thoughts kickstarted a journey of discovery that revealed everything from feelings of happiness and admiration to those of wonder and amusement. After much consideration, he finally identified some of those elements critical to the country’s culture. After reading this, you may even be tempted to bring a little Finnishness into your own life.
