This week I am heading up to the Arctic Circle to have a chat with Santa and to consume Rudolph. Red nose and all…
Santa, here I come
When I went to Russia earlier this winter, everyone asked me “Why are you going there?”. I did a lot of introspection and came up with answers that apply to the Lapland trip as well.
1. Because I’m masochistic.
2. Because I want something completely different than where the fat and loud American tourists go.
Where and what is Lapland?
Lapland is the name of a region in north Europe that belongs to Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. Mild in summer with temperatures reaching 20Â°C and a wonderful snowland in winter with -30Â°C in the coldest months of the year.
The same IM chat occurs every time I chat with someone about Lapland:
London Ninja says: goin 2 lapland on thurs
JeffC says: what’s lapland?
JeffC says: strip club?
London Ninja says: y
JeffC says: cool
London Ninja says: galore
Sorry to disappoint but Lapland is unfortunately not the land of lapdances. Unless you call putting a husky in your lap after a dog-sledding tour a lapdance.
Should be a very cool, and I mean bone-chilling, trip. Will give updates after I get the frostbite to clear from my arse.
