I’m back home from these wintry landscapes again and huh, a weekend off was much needed! Our roadtrip wasn’t that relaxing after all, because there wasn’t that much of a day light and it was quite frustrating to drive in complete darkness everyday. I also couldn’t work the way I wanted (since I spent most of my hours sitting in the dark), so I’m ready for a new week now. Even though I feel grateful for the last one as well – lots of beautiful landscapes and laughter!
As I said, we laughed a lot and there was many mishaps in the middle. The idea of a luxurious cheese night turned out to be not so glorious, when we ate them straight from the package in the moving, dark car. (I can only believe how our beige leather seats looked like after playing with fig jam). We also had to use our own ladies rooms in -20c and after my mom emptied our takeaway food somewhere else than into a trashcan, we couldn’t use a toilet in our hotel room either :D However, the icing of the cake was definitely my way back home, because there was some issues with the motor of our plane and I ended up waiting 8 hours at the airport, on my birthday. So that didn’t go as planned either, but luckily I got home at the end of the day!
Sellaista siis Lappiin tällä kertaa, kivaa alkavaa viikkoa kaikille! :)
But despite to all of that, we had a blast together. We listened to some Finnish pop songs in the car and spent my birthday beforehand listening that an entire restaurant is singing happy birthday to me. (Lapland people <3). We saw many pieces of northern lights and a huge shooting star as well. Not even mentioning the food – I can vividly remember one dish we had in Utsjoki, their beetroot steaks with mushroom risotto was exceptional.
So that’s about it this time, have a lovely week you all! :)
