What do you think about Finland this far?

Merel: I think Oulu is really cute!

In Finland there are some things that the dutch find weird. For example eating habits and times differ from their culture. They eat later and on lunch they rarely have warm food.

Casper: In Netherlands it’s stupid cold but here it’s nice cold.

They noticed that we have higher trees in Finland than in Netherlands. They also find the snow and ice very beautiful but downside is that it is so slippery outside. They said that Oulu has a great vibe and that they have enjoyed their time here.
