I spent the whole last week at Messukeskus the ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) Congress. A very interesting week including many interesting discussions, predicting the future of mobility, testing Google Glasses (I want a pair of those!) and my own speach at one of the sessions. But after being part of all this digitalization, connectivity and robotization it’s very relaxing to spend Midsummer at a small cabin by the sea without electricity!
The world is getting more and more international but still I get surprised at how travel information is arranged at various airports. At Brussels airport I had to buy my bus ticket using my broken French. Today I wouldn’t have found my way from Copenhagen airport to Malmö without knowing Danish. But actually it is quite nice to get some local flavor (as long as it’s a language I understand).
Usually everything is better in Sweden. But now I know one thing that is better in Finland. Sweden might have Högakusten but we have Kalajoki and sunshine at 11 pm.
