... for instance, so we are restricted to one!).

Arriving back to our now spotless boat, all that remained to do was to pack the car, shut all the seacocks and lock her up, not without a tiny hint of worry about her, at least on my account. So at around 12:30, we were off on our travels, destination Rovaniemi, about 110 miles as the crow flies.

Of course, we hadn’t travelled very far when it was ...

Lulea to Rovaniemi to Turku

... Sweden to Finland! I read, on several sites, that the bus leaving Lulea was in time with the train's arrival. Not so.

The bus left promptly at 10.50. The Parade (National holiday parade) was taking place as we went through Haparanda - the part we saw was all the cars of 1950s early 60s vintage (I'll come back to this later in Stockholm). Didn't take a lot of notice - but I did see them! Not enough time to get a photo - the bus was ...

... walls covered in children’s letters to Santa, finally we had arrived at Santa’s office door. Another elf told us to wait then went to tell Santa we had arrived.

On the train I got into the cabin with two guys and 3 other girls. In the begging was so weird, I was so shy, but minute by minute things got better and next day there were no walls among us, at least I thought so. We stayed in cottages which hosted 5 people each. One was huge and hosted 10 (or 8?) and had an awesome fireplace, exactly for winter. My roomates were 3 italian girls and one german girl. We ...

Santa Claus home

Today was absolutely great. I woke up and started by trying to save some money by hitch hiking to my next destination of Rovaniemi. It's 300 KM from Ivalo, which was where I woke up at. I watched about 50 cars go by and decided to just hop on the next bus. Finland is supposed to be very safe for hitch hiking. It was roughly $65 and took 3.5 hours. I saw hundreds of reindeer along the way and the bus frequently stopped to make ...
