I don’t know much at all about Finland, to tell you the truth. Snow comes to mind, and long cold winters. Finland definitely would not come up in my thoughts when thinking of summer getaways. But based on my explorations of Finlandia, the virtual world representation of a nordic summer in Finland, I think my assumptions about the country are inaccurate. Or, they are incomplete.
It’s so pretty and peaceful here, I could have spent hours more in the sim. It’s ripe with landscape photo opportunities. I will be going back to this place and adding more photos to my Finlandia set on Flickr.
There are several areas where you can hang out with friends, in a treehouse, around a campfire, swimming, or swing on the tire swing and take in the tranquil mood of the landscape.
Follow the paths from the landing point, that will lead you on a quiet walk through the countryside.
This flagpole intrigued me. I did a bit of research and learned that it is called a Juhannussalko – a flag pole that the Fins put up in their midsummer celebration. The celebration takes place between the 20th and 26th of June, which to us in North America is Summer Solstice.
Finlandia is certainly a very pretty place to explore and take pictures. There is a tip jar at the landing spot if you would like to donate to this sim.
