Back from Finland…More Photos

More soon on all of that, but check out this short account and the photos/vid below until I have more time.

    Finland is quite a lovely country. I’ve been there a few times. Did you make it to the Arctic Circle? Starting in June the sun never goes down for the summer. No, I really mean it. It does NOT go down. You wake up at 2 am thinking it’s time for breakfast because it’s broad daylight outside your window.
