Think of this as a Fashion Blog, with a bit of a TravelBlogue thrown in.
So you’ve gathered it’s cold here, St Petersburg was very cold, Helsinki (oops where’s the blog for Helsinki – coming I promise) had the most snow in more than 100 yeas, so it was even colder, but Lapland – we’re on another level of cold up here.
One must dress appropriately for the cold.
Plan your wardrobe carefully,
Here’s the strategy for a sightseeing wardrobe:-
Layers for your body
Layers for your feet
Layers for your hands
Layers for your head
Then you can go meet these guys,
(Note – no way I was taking off gloves and digging out glasses to take photos – sorry they are a big blurry)
Have a good look at their faces
The rest of the photos are rear views only
While you’re here, how amazing are the trees?
They run so fast it started to get even colder
Someone’s regretting not wearing all those layers
Just as fingers and toes lost all feeling
Lunch was served inside a log hut, in the forest,
with authentic heating.
Note the people in the background demonstrating how warm the fire was NOT.
