|Finnish Hostel Workers' Meeting kicking off and saying HI to the World!|
19 people from 13 different hostels around Finland got together this morning for two days of talks of what hostelling is all about. We're looking into the future: what do we want to become in the future? Which way do we want to develop ourselves? How can we serve the travellers even better?
And since we are meeting in the town of Lappeenranta, which is right next to the border of Russia, we'll also learn more what are the specific expectations of Russian tourists.
Our meeting is at Finnhostel Lappeenranta, which is part of a large tourist resort that also includes a camping site. There's a lake right next to the hostel.
We want to thank our hosts at the Hostel: Riku, Juha and Seija!
