Welcome!! This WebSite hosts a BLOG which will be a collection of stories… primarily based on current ongoing ex-pat experiences in Northern Finland.
“Tales from Abroad” or “Tales from a Broad”, the choice of emphasis is entirely yours. Both are true 😉
I merely wish to share some words. I love to read, have adored certain authors’ words, yet don’t write my own often enough. So, posting to my blog will serve as a personal challenge, and an opportunity to engage in my favorites: learning, experiencing, taking pictures, curating and most importantly sharing. I hope to weave in a bit of Finnish and European History, stories about culture, language, notable people, recipes, and of course anecdotes of personal activities. I’m thinking of it like a ‘combo platter’!
I encourage you to make this interactive… google topics that you find yourself interested in, shoot me an email about a thought or question, or in the comments, share your own tales.
Speaking of combo platters, this appetizer board is from an incredible dinner that I recently shared with my friend and former boss, Ron Webb, at Ravintola Nokka in Helsinki. It’s a bit of Finland on a plate: reindeer sausage, pickled wild mushrooms, smoked fishes, beets, and a celeriac puree. Mmmmm…
I hope you enjoy consuming these tales as much as I have enjoyed creating them!
