        He looks so different from the time I met him last time... I wonder which SPA he hangs around during the off-season?

        I would also like to thank you for these picture report from a vacation trip which would fall far down on my list, because it's so simple that I do not like winter and cold (anymore).

          I was cold but so much fun in the snow, we even got a certificate to say we had crossed the artic circle. i should have put the information on our visits with the photos. Instead of writing it out again are you able to move it from the other thread ( views from the air ) Photobucket's new set up has put photos too big at times so i will need to change the sizes again on all photos. Ps i did a few photos to your email address, again my windows set up has changed and i dont know how they went through !!!!! i just get used to it all and they change everything, and my brain just cant work it out at times.. !!!!!!!

            the first visit to Lapland was to Rovaniemi for three days. We stayed in a log cabin, and my grandchildren loved it, the area had a ski slope and sledge run for the children and just snow everywhere, There was a treck through the snow to find Santa's log cabin with him and the elves. passing his reigndeers on the way. the snowmobile , reigndeer sleigh ride and husky rides were fantastic. It was difficult steering the snowmobile and i was heard screaming most of the time as i nearly tipped up turning a corner. There was no daylight , only an hour in the morning. We crossed the Artic Circle and visited the artic village with lots of lovely shops. It was cold but magical, that i took my younger grandson to Kittila where my photos are from a few years later and enjoyed it all again.
