Part 2 of Things NOT To Do in Finland!
7. Keep Your PDA in Check
Obviously it’s fine to hold hands, but the Finns are pretty stoic, so don’t expect them to enjoy you kissing your spouse in public.
8. Don’t Wear Shoes in the House
If there’s a conveniently placed pile of shoes at the door, go ahead and take your shoes off, too.
9. Don’t Expect to Eat Any Peels
The typical Finnish person doesn’t actually eat the peels or rinds of any vegetable! Their concern is for the potential chemicals that are found on the outside of fruit and veg.
10. Don’t Brag
The rule of thumb throughout the country is modesty, so keep it in mind when describing yourself to locals.
11. Don’t Speak Ill of Finnish Hockey
You will get your behind kicked. Fair warning.
12. Don’t Be Afraid to Open Up
Finns might seem like mean people who just want you to stop talking, but that stoic veneer blocks a kind and warm-hearted people.
