      Ha Elizabeth, thanks! It was a great day out and I can recommend everyone visiting. I love to go back, as we didn’t get to see the glasblowers at work -can imagine that would be amazing to see!

  4. This looks like my cup of tea! If I ever get to Finland this is definitely something I want to do. I love how you got to see the processes, fascinating. I’m geekily into factories too ;-)
    Great photos, they really make me want to see it for myself!

  5. “Arabia” is an interesting name :)
    Oh – Finland makes great scissors. The best I’ve ever used!
