Matka in Finnish

In Finnish puhu means talk/speak and matka means travel. This is just a small part of the lesson in Finnish I got when reading Crickey’s Scandinavian correspondent, Therese Catanzariti’s notes on the complexities of the language. Finnish has no future tense. No possessive apostrophe. No prepositions. But it does have 15 cases and you can throw the comma rule out the window. Language difficulties are no secret amongst some of us travelers, but if you plan on heading to Finland, see what Therese has to say. In any case there are tons of other facts that might come in handy one day.
