Out of office

Back to the basics

In Finland we have this saying ‘to put your brain in the cloakroom’. And that’s what we do in the summertime every Friday after work and in July, when the whole of Finland is out of office. If you try to reach a Finnish person in July, prepare for a voice mail message saying”the person you are calling, has gone fishing”. Almost every tenth Finn has their own summer cottage as there are over 500 000 summer cottages in Finland.
