16th April – Finntopia

Finland was until very recently poor and had been historically a country of extreme poverty for centuries. It is quite remarkable to see what a people and their politicians have achieved by caring for each other and being clever.

Finland ranks at or near the top in air quality, education, happiness, honest government, opportunities for children, safety, trust in the police, and in many other categories, all of which are listed at the end of this book.

If you’re interested in how Finland did this, read this book. It’s a lot to do with equality and people feeling cared for and their contributions to society being valued by other people.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
