STAYING LIKE A LOCAL
Three of us – Iva – my friend from volunteering, bear Bear – my trophy from tennis tournament, and me, took trip to Oslo.
Hornsjo, a Small Alpine Village
They met me at the Lillehammer railway station at night and drove to the place – a small village in the mountains behind the boom. A few summer barns and one hotel – that’s Hornsjo, a small alpine village above Lillehammer in Norway.
There was the big event the week I was back to Rovaniemi – the Arctic Rally. I was a automotive journalist a while ago in Moscow and can’t just pass their media centre in the Pohjanhovi hotel without saying “hello”.
Gym & Spade
8 times right hand is leading, 8 times left, 8 times push, 8 times pull… Was I the first ever person using spade and snow for exercising instead of gym?
Santa Claus and Aurora Borealis
The Arctic Circle crosses Finland in the city of Rovaniemi. More particularly – in Santa Claus Village. Snowdrifts and Christmas decoration guaranteed. As well as a whole day darkness.
How the Shared Link Switches Over Your Plans
… Solution came as a shared link in Facebook about global volunteering, when you do something somewhere in return of accommodation and food.
