Feb 25, 2015 - Mounio, Finland - Part 2

There was a lovely elderly gentleman who had been tying up his horse to the post on the driveway for the past couple of days and certainly did love the chat, even though I didn’t know what he was saying, didn’t seem to stop him for trying to have a grand ole conversation. I got to feed chunks of dried bagel and sweet grass to Huilu (Flute in Lapish) and admire his ability to locate it with his lips whilst taking small nibbles of the snow underneath. Whilst at breakfast on my last day, I was having a dilemma about which activities I should...

May 3, 2009 - Finnish Lapland

We venture into Finish Lapland at mid afternoon. Its snowing lighlty as we drive and we have 5 or so hours to enjoy the country side. The landscape is soft and beautiful, huge fleets of tall, green, pines trees, with a few leafless non ever green varieties mingled in. There are hundreds of frozen lakes spanning off in every direction. At every bend of the road the surrounding views are consistantly flat and level. We journey past many small cottages and farm areas, signs that at some part of the year there is bustling and busy life here but...
