Finland was our Country of the Week. We looked into the long history of a country that was often caught between warring powers, all the way through to independence. Learn more HERE.

In this week’s Travel Guide we ventured deep in the wilds of the Finnish Lakeland and Lapland, discovering vibrant cities and much more along the way. Start your journey HERE.

We circled back once again to the euro in this week’s Currency Spotlight. Since adopting the pan-European currency in the early 2000’s, Finland’s economy is linked (for better or worse) with most of the continent. Learn more HERE.
