The best decision of our lives

Anthony and Tiina moved back to the naturally beautiful Kristinestad after finishing their studies. They moved back because they felt that their hometown could provide them with everything they needed for a good life: a safe environment for their children to grow up in, work and hobbies close to home, and an opportunity to build their dream home by the sea. The video above is in Swedish and Finnish.
