Spotify Traveling Song List

Travel Playlist on Spotify

I created this “Traveling Songs” playlist a while ago since the list I usually listened to got boring and I couldn’t modify it since it wasn’t my own. I added a mixture of calm(er) songs – perfect to sleep to while in transit and to cancel out other noises. Then some more upbeat songs to keep the energy up while for…

About being a Swedish-speaking Finn in Finland

I recently wrote another article for Global Young Voices that got published today. This time it was about what it is like to be a Swedish-speaking Finn in Finland – “finlandssvensk” in Swedish and “suomenruotsalainen” in Finnish.

All This Noise

Every night and day it’s loud outside my window. I hear people screaming, “wooing”, talking and singing. I hear the tram’s “pling”, scooters passing by and the street cleaning machine early in the morning. I also hear a neighbour who plays the same thing almost every day on a tuba (or a similar blow instrument) and someone singing “Knockin’ on…
