The primary goal is to provide travel guides in the Finnish language, since many Finns are more comfortable with their own language. It's a small country, but Finns are a well-traveled bunch and there are quite a few Finnish contributors already. In addition, the Swedes have one too so, in the spirit of friendly Nordic competition, the Finns must have a bigger and better one.
This Expedition has the following goals:

Choosing a go-between
In order to make a successful, integrated Finnish Wikitravel, we need to choose one of the three users who put their names down, and make them a go-between. The role of the go-between will be to act as a liaison between English and Finnish Wikitravel, and therefore, he must be able to:
The go-between will be chosen by voting.
The candidates for go-between will be the users willing to contribute. To win, a go-between must have two votes for them, and no votes against them. Only people who nominated themselves under the "Gathering a team" section can vote. And remember, you cannot vote for yourself.
The language interface file for Finnish is at en:Wikitravel:LanguageFi.php. It's started with the Wikipedia Finnish language file; it needs to be customized to work for Wikitravel. Compare en:Wikitravel:Language.php for the changes needed for English Wikitravel.
The main changes needed are the name of the site (Wikipedia -> Wikitravel), the name and link to the license, and the names of some important pages.
