I am currently neck-deep in exams and while I have so many stories to tell about our recent trip to Finland, I unfortunately don't have time to do them justice at the moment. Expect a plethora of posts (or, more likely, once weekly) from 26 January onwards, but until then, here's another teaser photo to (hopefully) leave you wanting more.
This picture was taken at Helsinki airport while waiting for our connecting flight to Kittila and served as our first introduction to both the country and Scandanivia as a whole.
We liked it.
Imagine if you will, two intrepid South Africans, recently departed from temperatures of around 36°C, gazing upon a white expanse of snow leading to a dark and mysterious forest in the distance. It was like being on the edge of a fairytale. We couldn't wait for our story to begin.
