Hi, my name is Christoffer

Hi, i registerd today, i stubled over this forum when i was googleing for smileys, and iツエm happy that i found this place, im very much in to japan, and their music, and especially their manga.

a little more about myself, im a 17 year old boy, who lives on / in the aland islands, that is betwean sweden and finland, the winter here is very boring, mostly cause we have all that water around us that warms the ground and air. So we canツエt ski here very much, ehh... there is one more reason to that, the highest point here is around 230 meters, and that is not a skislope ;) .

But in the this place is full of activity, this is one of THE most visited places in scandinavia, people come here from all over the world, turst me, they do. Americans, Germans, frenchemen, spaniors, and even from Asia, they all come here.
A good reason to why they come here is that itツエs very beutiful here in the summer. Allthough this place isnツエt the cheapest place to visit since both sweden and finland are cheaper when it comes to for an expemple, food. our foodprices are about 30-50% higher here than they are in sweden. but we all live good here, u can trust me on that to. cause the aland islands is the welthyest place in finland (oh, i forgot to mention that, the aland islands belong to finland)
but with itツエs small population of only 26.000 it is abel to attract so many tourists, wich also is one of the main sources of income here.
oh.... i think iツエll just stop there, i can go on forever with this, but if there is anything you wonder, just ask me. it would be very nice if more people in for an exemple america and asia found out about this place

Hi Picardo, nice to have you on board! 🙂

Some of my friends visited Aland last year. They said it's a good place to relax. :)
