Heading to Lapland

Sleeping on the night train from Turku to Oulu was fruitless. little sleeping was accomplished by all of us. We napped the next afternoon. I think it would have been better to take the day train. I think there is an express train.

A bonus was we stopped in Tampere for 3 hrs and got off to walk the town. Even at 1am it was very nice to visit that city.


This is a very well done archeological/museum site of Finns of the Stone Age.

there are fun things for kids and adults to do.

Rovaniemi is very quiet this time of year. I think the tourists season must be in the winter.

At midnight Jen and I had an anniversary kiss at a “Metal” bar (Pahu Kurki). The music there was great.

Of course we went to Santa’s Village (Joulupukin Pajakylä).

Breakfast at Cafe & Bar 21 is wonderful. The Flying Reindeer waffle is something. This place is highly recommend.
