I am at your service, if you need a guide in Sammatti or Tytyri Mine Experience. I have a Master's degree in Education, and I've worked as a classroom teacher over 30 years. Over the years I also have written many kinds of texts. Some of them are published as a book Aamupaloja (Kirjapaja 2008). I still write daily. I also can help you if you like to improve your Finnish language.
I have been filming since 1970's, starting from Super-8 films, but last decades I've made only videos. I mostly make documents: weddings, holiday trips and demonstration videos. In addition, I have made movie scripts and movies with young people in summer camps and filming club at school. It would be a pleasure for me to make a video for your important moments too, for example, at your wedding, birthday party or some else.
In 2017, I completed the course of Authorised Tourist Guide in Lohja. My favourite targets in Lohja are Tytyri Mine Experience, the medieval Church of St Lawrence and Sammatti, the little village where Elias Lönnrot was born, lived and died. There are lots of other interesting places to visit in Lohja. Please, contact me to get me guiding you in Sammatti or Tytyri.
My newest products are connected to Elias Lönnrot, the famous Finnish doctor, botanist and writer, who compiled the Finnish national epic Kalevala. Elias Lönnrot was born in the little Paikkari Croft, and he moved back to Sammatti after 50 years. He spent his final years far from the city life, in the Lammi House. In spite of being retired, Lönnrot worked regularly in the Lammi House, finalizing among other things his Swedish-Finnish dictionary.
Now you can step in Elias Lönnrot's footsteps with me on guided tours starting from Paikkari Croft via the Lammi House, ending to Sammatti Church and cemetery, where Lönnrot is buried.
Warmly welcome to Sammatti!
