Finland was as far north as I was going to go during my travels. I’d met Pauliina when she came to work at the Family TV station in New Zealand while I was there, and she had arranged a number of touristy things to be done while I was visiting. So after spending time in Helsinki and the nearby towns, it was a flight north to Lapland, above the arctic circle where the sun hardly shines and cars need to be plugged in to an electric heater while not in use. Up here are the only mountains for skiing that Finland has, although they are not like Switzerland it was still fun to snowboard around them for a while.
