I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move'.

I am back in Stockholm, after two weeks in Finland, and what a time I had!!!!!!! It was great going there, firstly because I had heard such wonderful stories about Finland from friends and family, but also from a political view point (Namibia has had a long relationship with Finland). Anyways, I stayed with friends of my parents - the lady is Namibian and her husband is Finnish and their little boy. I also met some other Namibians, a South African, some Russians and Tanzanians. All in all, I felt like my trip could have been sponsored by the UN.
It really was a wonderful time, Finnish people are so different from the Swedes, from the language to the food, to the culture and how they dress. For me, the Finnish people are laid back, funky, seriously cool hippies (I am not saying they are!!!! they just seem to be so nice) like people in Berlin, Germany. They are seriously friendly, open and walk to know everything about you. Or then again maybe its me and I attract people who seem to want to talk to me?!!!! Anyways, I loved it. The reason for my trip was too look at univerisities in order to finish my degree. So that was why I went. That and because I love to travel and see new places. And it was a Birthday present from my parents. Ok Onto Pictures!!!!!!!
