Expat Experience: Tom de Reed, Helsinki

Post Posted: Wed Sep 04, 2013 5:29 pm



My name is Tom and I am a 25 year old Dutchman. I have studied international business and it is through these studies that I eventually ended up in Finland, where I still reside to date.

I enjoy participating in and watching a variety of sports, from with football in particular. I also like outdoors activities such as fishing, hiking and the Finnish traditions of collecting mushrooms and wild berries.

I moved to Helsinki in the autumn of 2008 for what was supposed to be a 10 month stay as part of a student exchange program.

Now, 5 years later, I still find myself living here and I have even started to call the country home.

To be honest I did not known a lot about Finland prior to deciding to move here. To a certain degree this was also part of the appeal. The things I did know about the country, that it is very clean and organized and has one of the best education systems on the planet, certainly made me want to find out more...
