yes, the joys of different cultures- on this side of the ocean saying "I sew" conjures up images of teenage girls in home economics class, putting ruffles on aprons. saying "I can make my own camping gear" is a totally different image- men in industrial settings, running huge machinery setups...
so welcome to the group! have fun, KM
Welcome to the forum.
I spent the better part of 3 months in Vaasa Finland. Went to Helsinki to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs play the Jokerit. We also got to camp about 300km north of the artic circle (can't remember the name of the lake ) in late November. That is still my favorite work related trip. Beautiful country with very friendly people. I would love to go back again with my wife to show her what a wonderful place Finland is.
