TRAVEL NEAR (WTF Welcome To Finland #11)
THIS ONE I MADE ESPECIALLY FOR PEOPLE LIVING IN FINLAND, though I hope travelling near is something to explore for everyone.
This video was commissioned by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment. Thanks for giving me free hands on the subject! www.lomahaaste.fi #lomahaaste

I was given a mission by the government of Finland. The ministery of economic affairs and employment wants me to encourage you to travel near.
Within couple years I’ve travelled near to over 30 places in Finland. (including Archipelago, Utö, Röölä, Oulu, Syöte, Sodankylä, Kuusamo, Muhos, Koli, Heinävesi, Nurmes, Valtimo, Kauhava, Nummijärvi, Tampere, Nokia, Ikaalinen, Sääksmäki, Kouvola, Jämsä, Siilinjärvi, Loppi, Salo, Karjaa, Espoo, Vantaa, Heinola, Nurmes, Pihlajavesi, Turku, and of course inside Helsinki.)
In times of social media its important to meet people face to face. In times of political turmoil it’s important to talk face to face.
They say Finns are the most challenging people to make friends with. I say challenge accepted.
Go out, go to that bar you never went to
Just hit the road without knowing where it leads you to
Visit the neighbour you only greet in corridor
Smallest of adventures is where friendships are born
Traveling to your neighboring flat can offer a journey to emotionally distant lands.
Travel to neighbouring district and you home expands.
Find out how many newcomers, extraordinary hobbies, rising artists, local madmen or weird projects, can fit in one land.
Get to know local history and local future
As much as this Welcome To Finland Series is for international audience, this is also for us who are living here. So Finns, Welcome To Finland. Every day.
