As of May 2021, I am no longer updating the English version of this blog. Over the past few years its popularity has lagged much behind the Russian version (itself quite a niche website as well), and translating all posts adds to the writing burden considerably. I hope however that I can publish more in English (or even Finnish) eventually, but probably in some different format (for example a guide into some area of Finland, which I might eventually compile from these travel notes).
