    ... speak English wherever I travel around. We are visiting their country so it should really be expected that they will speak their own language. After more than a month on the road though, where aside from the occasional sentence from another tourist, broken English is the best that you can get it was nice to even hear proper English again! We flew into Rovaniemi no worries but didn't really expect the airport to be as small as it was. Don't get me wrong, we knew we weren't ...

    ... a spot overlooking the river to have some cheese and salami. There were a few mozzies around so I kept my jacket hoodie up! After having some food we kept walking and arrived at the Akselinlaavu lean-to shelter. There is a shed with firewood and a toilet! Wish we had stopped here for our nibbles! From the lean-to shelter it was another 550 metres to the hanging bridge at the Jäniskoski Rapids. On the northern side of the river there ...

    A travel blog entry by jennymgg on Oct 06, 2014

    ... David appreciated me refraining from singing Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer as he took his first bite. Then it was time to rug up. I layered up with a long-sleeve thermal top, spencer, two long sleeve tops, jumper and jacket, with thermal pants, jeans, thermal socks, boots, beanie and gloves.

    Drove back through Ivalo to do the grocery shopping. Then drove to Napapiiri, Finnish for the Arctic Circle. Absolute contrast to crossing the Arctic Circle in Norway 8 days ago. Huge complex, no snow and so commercial - yuk. But this is where Santa lives and you can pay to have your photo taken with him. Posted cards that will go to Aus. with Santaland post mark! Left Rob and Rob to go to the Arkticum Museum at Rovaneimi . Great museum in 2 parts, ...
