    Jokamiehenoikeudet (everyman's rights) is one of the best things in the Nordic countries. It's a crucial component in loving nature, and loving nature is a crucial component in the Nordic lifestyle.

    Did you know that northern Russia used to be finno ugric before slavs came in and intermixed with the various finnic peoples there? Most northern russians on average are about half finnic, even Moscow is originally a finnic city, you should do a dna test to see if you also have some finnic ancestors

    The word "sisu" is interesting. At one point it actually had a negative connotation, but later on it became one of the best-known Finnish words internationally.
    I think the word has a bit of a mythical nature to it as well. I'm not sure how much it would describe the lives of the Finns today, life really isn't all that hard nowadays..

    It has also been my experience, that Finns are more relaxed than the Swedes. At least Finns are more casual about the appearance of their clothes and gardens.
    I guess that can be both a positive and a negative thing?

    One peculiar thing that I have noticed personally is that even the young people are very much in touch with the nature.
    I study computers, so I would expect the other students to be a bunch of nerds, but we have conversations about berry- and mushroom picking in the forest 😀

    I would also be very interested in hearing more about the Russian culture!
    BTW, there have not been any updates on the blog for months 🙁

    Not having kalsarikännit in any traditional sense here but funny coincidence: I opened a bottle of wine to relax and open my mind a bit, and started it by watching this video 😀 Only personal traditions I can come up with at the moment are things like self reflection in the silence of nature or with candles and wine (too bad good discussion partners are hard to come by). More lighthearted tradition would perhaps be horrible pickup lines but I guess we all can relate to that regardless of nationality x)

    I always thought kalsarikänni was more like getting wasted alone, but never really stopped to think about the meaning. So I guess I have had a few kalsarikännis by your explanation. I'm more of a social drinker. When I'm traveling outside Nordic countries, it's easy to see how much the lifestyles differ from ours.
