Final comments
Travel tips: You have good access to all countries around the Baltic sea; especially try to visit the Baltic states, and (I regret it was not possible for me) Russia. Also the north of Finland, Lappi, is really beautiful, especially in autumn. And don't miss to rent a cottage ("mökki") with your friends in the lake area, with sauna, swimming, incredible nature. It's the best!
