These photos are hand-picked as the berries on right and they are supposed to show what I love. First represents Finland, sports (especially ice hockey) and winter – the second goes for traveling, nature and everything else related to those. The third is about food and lifestyle. Under the berries you can see traditional “Vihta” which could I suppose represent Sauna culture since it is used in Sauna. And of course, I love it!
