Is Finland a good place to live?
I'm currently a student but would like to travel and live all over the world, specificaly Europe. I would like to live in Finland because I enjoy Finnish rock music and Finnish metal music very much. Can anyone fill me in on what it is like to live in Finland or if it a good idea? I plan to graduate with a bachelors in International studies and Writing, will there be any job opportunities for me? I know that a larger percentage of the younger people speak English but should I still try to learn Finnish? Any information is very welcome and if you can answer these questions I would be very grateful Do the Finnish like Americans? How easy is it for an American to live in Finland? Where is agood place for a young person to live? How expensive is it to live in Finland? How safe is it for a young woma to live on her own? What are the laws for bringing animals from other countries to live in Finland? Is it easy to meet people? If I am going to visit how much can I expect to pay?
