About myself and the project

Welcome aboard! My blog will bring you to the Nordic countries and to the rest of the world. Being an expat in Finland, I am (primarily) exploring Scandinavia. I make short weekend trips from Helsinki or travel to my homeland – Russia.

Life in Finland is something special! After moving here in 2011 I have come through many experiences, some pretty interesting and some a bit weird. I moved here for work and completed a master’s degree part-time. Currently, I spend half of my time with Finns, half with other expats. I do believe I have something to share!

And yes, lastly, my background is in Mechanical Engineering. So some of my posts go a bit technical (not much though). They are still friendly to regular, non-engineering, readers and cover such things like travel startups, technical museums, old industry, vintage and innovative travel gear.
