Congrats for Finland´s 106 years of Independence! Proud and Happy to be a Finn! Peace and Love for the Brighter Future!

SUOMI Oli unohtumaton kokemus saada olla vieraana Suomen itsenäisyyspäiväjuhlissa 6.12.2023 presidentinlinnassa. Suomi juhlisti 106-vuotispäiväänsä.

SVENSKA Det var en oförglömlig upplevelse att vara gäst vid firandet
