I’m trying something new: If you like The Week in Review and Hiking in Finland, you can now support HiF and subscribe. Take out a subscription for The Week in Review for 2€ per TWIR - the cost of a cheap coffee - or take out a subscription for all the content on HiF. Subscriptions are voluntary and all content remains free to read, however, the subscriptions allow me to further develop the website and offer you great content.
