Vacationing in Finland


Are you a westerner? Then you understand how calm and easy visiting another western country is, based on the fact that you’ll have some sense of familiarity. Majority of the things are usually easy to use such as using the bathroom, grocery store, and transportation.

Finland is a very tourist-friendly country, and entirely unique. Together with the uniqueness are some other things you have to know and keep in mind when you visit.


  • Finns can be solemn and quiet, however, they are far from being cold

Stereotypically, Finns are regarded as stern and quiet people. Although, they may seem like the reserved kind of people but this doesn’t mean they aren’t just as kind, or even kinder than other people in other countries. If they seem to be standoffish when you see them, don’t let that discourage you, or even think they hate you, it’s just their nature.

  • Finns love to know other people’s opinion of their country

Finns are debatably the most curious people when it comes to finding out what others think of their country. These people are genuinely curious, and what other way is best to break the ice with the quiet Finns rather than complimenting their country?

  • Swedish is also an official language in Finland

Finland was under Swedish rule for centuries and in fact, they are   countries. Knowing some Swedish phrases could be a plus in Finland as it is considered an official language there.

  • Finns don’t eat peels

Finns don’t eat peels because of chemicals on them. Same as potato skins too. If you are chowing down an unpeeled fruit in Finland, don’t be surprised when they look at you in some skewed ways. Also, you shouldn’t even expect to see produce with so many preservatives.

  • Being naked isn’t something to be shy about in Finland

Most Finns have saunas in their homes and the entire family goes in together, though separated by gender. Usually, you are naked in the sauna, even when you go with other people. Bathing suits are even considered physically uncomfortable in the heat. So, try to get used to public nakedness if you come from a more body-shy society.

Vacationing in Paris for the First Time?


If it’s your first time being in Paris, you definitely would want to visit the Eiffel Tower. This place is really amazing; however, you shouldn’t forget there are so much more fun things to do in Paris, there are so many places to go, foods to eat, places to shop and so on.

Since you’ll most likely not be able to go everywhere or do everything, we’ve decided to help you out by compiling a list containing details of how you can enjoy your vacation in the City of Light.


Eiffel Tower:

This Tower, which happens to be the most iconic symbol of the capital city of France wasn’t always so beloved in the past. It was constructed by Gustave Eiffel for the World Fair in 1889, the tower wasn’t meant to remain standing when the fair is over, but as it was half-loved and half-hated by Parisians, inventors saw some usefulness in it, and the tower escaped being dismantled. Over a century later, the Eiffel Tower has always attracted millions of visitors to Paris.

The tower gets illuminated at night, and it even sparkles every hour for about 5 minutes if you stick around more.

Musée du Louvre:

This was once the home of French Royals; it has since become the best and even the largest art museum in the world. When you visit this place, you should remember to take a selfie with I.M Pei’s popular Louvre Pyramid, or you can just go straight inside to feed your eyes with classic artworks such as the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace and the Venus de Milo.

Notre-Dame de Paris:

This is one of the most highly recognized churches ever; the Notre-Dame Cathedral impressively represents the French Gothic architecture. This place is known to be the site of Napoleon’s coronation and also the setting for Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.

You should know that visiting the Notre-Dame Cathedral is free. However, you can’t avoid waiting on the line for about 30 minutes.
