MUJI X Sensible 4’s Self-Driving Bus premiered in Finland. We got a chance to sit in it!

It’s only natural that the world’s first fully autonomous self-driving bus would come out of Finland. Finland, believe it or not, is often considered to be the ‘Silicon Country’ that gave the world Nokia and pretty much set the very blueprint for mobile communications.

Finns Flash in Today’s NHL

As hockey has grown as a global sport, an increase in non-North American players in the NHL has occurred simultaneously. Although the best and largest number of players still come from North America, other nations have had an increase in representation in the NHL in recent seasons. It is one thing for a country to have a growth in the number of players in the league, but it is something different for that nation to produce successful NHL players. One country that has been experiencing a hockey r...

17 moments to have in Finland

FINLAND IS HOME to both the midnight sun and the Northern Lights, to quirky castles and thick forests full of edible berries and wild mushrooms. With some of the liveliest bars in Europe, a food scene that’s off-the-hook incredible, and no shortage of live music, festivals, and wildlife, the “land of the thousand lakes” — and of far, far more saunas — is definitely one of the most exciting places for travelers. Finland also happens to be a perfect stopover destination. With that in mind, many ...
