A surprise on four wheels

It was as if I always liked to travel the world, to discover new places, to try all kinds of cuisines, and to enjoy every strange thing that made me happy to live. Each country has had its charm and maybe in one of the following articles, I will write about such experiences.

I recently discovered something fascinating to me. Finland, even after so long, never ceases to amaze me. This time this country surprised me with some more special buses. They come once or twice a week and contain food or books for rent. I’m glad to know that people love to read so much.
For the elderly who cannot reach the supermarket, such a market on wheels is perfect. From fruits and vegetables to pasta and all kinds of food, just take the basket and enjoy shopping on four wheels.

I searched on this subject to see what other countries have to say and I discovered that many countries have something like that. It’s a super good idea to bring reading closer to today’s children.
Before there were these buses that housed hundreds of books, different ways of reaching people were used: bicycles, carts, cars, trains, boats, and wagons.

Although now there are not as many as before, I can still enjoy such a bus, and now that I have moved even closer to work, a mobile library would not bother me at all. It remains to find out the stations where this bus stops.

These mobile books are currently around 200 in Finland, but of all the European countries, the first mobile book appeared in Finland in Vantaa in 1913.

This is a personal “discovery” that I can enjoy. What interesting things do you have in your city?  I am waiting for you in comments with the most interesting things to share with me.

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Deea Skye and I am very delighted every time I see someone is visiting my blog. I’m Romanian and I live in Finland. I also spent a fair amount of time in France. I’d love to travel more one day, but I’ve never been outside of Europe. I have a license in pharmaceutical products but I am working in a car building company. If I got to choose my carrier path now, I’d probably go for something closer to the pharmacy or human medicine. But I always loved to write. About many things. And that's how my blog was born. I think I have always had an attraction to the Nordic countries. I consider myself lucky to have caught so many musical currents, but my soul remained in the '70s with the Abba band and The 1975.
