Simo Räsänen (also known here as Ximonic) is one of many users or builders in Wikimedia projects. The user has a Finnish nationality and is a Finnish native speaker. The recommended contact language is English in case one does not speak Finnish.

Considerably, I have the most easy access to the Lapland area of Finland, Sweden and Norway. To me it is very possible to get to the southern parts of these countries too. If you have any place in mind (especially in the mentioned area) that you would like me to take photographs of don't hesitate to suggest it to me. I will look forward and consider to go there. Besides, the visit can get really interesting to me too.
