Problems and Solutions: While traveling a problem may occur, think about those problems and how you would solve them.

The problem I had in Finland was trying to find out what was what, because of the language barrier. I didn't know where to go, or what to eat, because everything looked,well, Finish! I would prefer to bring a Finish dictionary, but before you land in the fabulous country, you should know some of the important words. Like, help,hungry,thirsty,please,I'm a tourist, where is ...., and how much is....? So you have no complication on your trip to Finland!

Optional: About the traveler. Who are you? Have you ever traveled?

I am Emma Quarles, I'm 12 years old and I have gone to many places. I have been to Finland, Germany, Sweden, Caribbean and multiple states. Also, because she is taking me to India.

Conclusion/Reflection

I chose Finland because my grandparents and other family relatives are there, and I love Finland's culture. I'm taking Bre, because she is a good friend and we have been trying to plan this trip and we might actually go when we get older. Also, because she is taking me to India.
