Though I've always lived in Finland, I have travelled a fair bit in Europe (about 28 countries*) and a little elsewhere too (namely in Cuba, Costa Rica, Panama, Argentina, Australia, Thailand, Mexico, and USA).

*If you count Georgia and the European part of Turkey as Europe :-)

Most of the time, I'm into a style of travel that involves backpacking / making few plans in advance / staying in hostels or couchsurfing.

Btw, Helsinki is cool and you should visit it.

comment Do airlines recycle uneaten, unopened, pre-packaged food?
This is something I've also wondered on several occasions. (I'm a bit pessimistic though as it's easiest to throw everything collected from passengers to the garbage bin.)

comment European countries “shut down” in August?
@MichaelBorgwardt: One big difference though: Finland shuts down (to some extent) in July. In August things begin to normalise.

comment How to get from Gatwick airport to Paddington?
Price is not a concern right now (my employer pays), but if there's a good public transport option available, I prefer that for other reasons. :)
