Hyvää Yrittäjän päivää! Today is the day of the entrepreneur in Finland and that had me reflect on my almost three years of being self-employed. Running your own business as a foreigner is challenging, there’s no denying that. But I also had to acknowledge, that the last years have been extremely exciting and with many ups and downs, but mainly I have learned a lot. From my peers, from projects and from putting myself out there. Hopefully some of this will be helpful, regardless if you’re looking for a job, planning on or having your own business.
Design shopping in all its glory – Tampere is the perfect city for that. Within close proximity to another, there’s one exciting store next to another, dive deep into what makes the local and the Finnish design scene, meet the creative minds behind them and drink lots of fancy coffee while you’re at it.
Tampere is a city that completely surprised me. Despite being the second largest city in Finland, I hadn’t really been here except for a transfer to the nearby airport, but other than that, I had no idea of what to expect of this little weekend trip. The city welcomed us with a quirky vibe of the local art and design scene, and a fantastic selection of restaurants and food options. Since we weather wasn’t really on our side, that is exactly what we resorted out to. Part One of this little city guide – where to stay, what to eat, what to expect.
Huber lies in the heart of Tampere and attracts mainly meat lovers – even more intriguing to see how they would cater for my vegetarian dinner companion! As one of the very few restaurants in all of Finland, Huber offer dry aged meat for their guests, and put a focus on really high quality meat dishes, Finnish ingredients and also the service.
