    Comment by Bernieshoot — February 17, 2016 @ 15:28 | Reply

    • Hello Bernard.

      Thank You for Your kind words. My country is long, which means that the south and the North offer different landscapes. There are two areas, which I personally love. Lapland in the north and the Lakeland area with its many different lakes on which cruises onboard of old steam ships are my favorites.

      Have a nice day.

    Comment by pheikell — February 17, 2016 @ 15:33 | Reply

    • Hello Pheikell.

      It is a construction crane. Oulu is the fastest growing center in the Nordic countries! Next is Stavanger. Oulu is beautiful even in winter and in summer, it is fascinating. It is also biggest biking town in Finland with 600 km / 373 mi biking routes. Thank you for Your kind comment.

  21. Après avoir vu toutes tes belles photos de soleil couchant en Finlande je suis allé voir sur Google pour avoir une connaissance plus précise de ce pays .
    Pays intéressant à différents points de vue . Etes-vous là pour le tourisme ou pour le travail ? En tout cas merci de nous faire connaître ce pays pas assez connu.

    • Bonjour Michel.

      Je suis pas là pour le tourisme ou pour le travail, parce que je suis retraité déjà de nombreuses années. Lorsque l’on travaillais pour notre compagnie aérienne nationale Finnair, j’ai voulu connaître le monde et donc ma patrie a été oublié. Maintenant, j’eu le temps de montrer le portrait de mon pays et de le présenter au monde. Il est incroyable de voir comment peu l’homme connaît son propre pays!🙂

      Merci beaucoup, passe une belle journée. Amitiés.

              Merci beaucoup pour votre réponse. Je suis heureux que vous connaissez l’anglais, parce que lorsque vous voyagez, il est nécessaire en général. La langue française est l’une de mes langues préférées. Pouvez-vous imaginer, que j’ai environ 1500 livres français que j’ai lu trois fois. Je leur ai acheté lors de la visite à Paris et à Bruxelles au cours des années.

    • Hello iamqueenveee.

      Thank You. Sunsets are gorgeous and I think that when there are clouds, then they are at their best.

      Have a wonderful day!
