About me! Hola guys! I'm Yassine😎 I live in Finland and Morocco is my home country. I'm an adventure and discovery fan! I previously made many trips, and traveled to many spots. I loved Helsinki when I visited, and I would definitely say that it's worth a stop when you're in that region of Europe. The city has also produced an impressive set of designers such as Alvar Aalto, one of the most notable modernist architects!
