Finland… Well, it is not Funland 🙂 At some instant people call it Funland but actually it is a Finland. It is located in the Northern part of Europe tucked in nicely between Sweden on its West and Russia on the East. Maybe people call it Funland because who knows they had a lot of fun their :p but no doubt the incredible scenery, unspoiled nature and a relatively liberal, modern political system are all positive attributes of Finland. I personally have a list of places to visit in Finland.
