Today I'm privileged to share with you the Finland I got to experience. I've witnessed the diversity and immense beauty of this land from the very north all the way to the southern parts, yet every time I set off I'm in awe. Finland never ceases to amaze me, and so, I’m truly honored and blessed to call this country my home.
This journey was more than a timelapse project. I could go on and on ecstatically about what I experienced during the 8500 kilometers on the road. As I carried the burden of impending schoolwork, I had to make the most out of my time, while fulfilling my dream. It meant that the three months spent with the project were momentous.
