Rent A Finn

Fun! You never know what leads to on new stuff 😀 As I tend to like people, I end up to meet all kinds of persons on my way. I’ve never cared outer titels nor how big is your cash balance, instead I cared how people treat each other, and can I laugh with them. …

Checking the course

Ocean brings people together

I keep admiring of the vast capability sea has to wipe off all unnecessary: Within the ocean, only the important core matters are left in. I was on a short leg for getting this particular sailboat safe under upcoming fall. We sailed on the front of southern Finland shoreline. As working gast, I met this …
