Adventures in Lapland

During Ski Week here in Finland – a week off of school at the end of February- I took off to Lapland to soak in life above the Arctic Circle. Check out the video recap below in Vlog #2 of my semester abroad here in Finland.

Fair warning: it’s a long one, and if you aren’t my mother, grandparents, a close friend, or me from the future, you may not find it as engaging. . Highlights include dogsledding, swimming in the Arctic Ocean, snowshoeing, sledding down Europe’s longest sledding hill, and a whole lot more. Head on over to Tim’s, grab a double-double, and then settle in to experience life above the 68th parallel.
