I have only been back from Finland for about a week and I am still basking in the memories (and editing a few thousand photos). The entire country was an unexpected revelation.
My major goal in this trip was to see and photograph the Northern Lights.
I failed. Well, the weather failed me. As it turned out, pretty much every day I was there was overcast and cloudy, so there wasn’t a single opportunity to get those photographs.
And I couldn’t have cared less.
I will be doing a series of posts — and finally some videos — from the week I spent in Finland. Not only did I love it, I am already planning a return trip for later this year. Sometimes the unexpected joys are the best ones and Finland in the winter… I never would have expected to be oohing and ahhhing as much as I was.
Loved, loved, loved it. Here are a few of the Instagram shots I took while there. I hope you like them — you can follow me along on Instragram by clicking on this link, if you wish. Thanks.
I was a guest of both the Finland Tourism Board, the Pyha-Luosto Tourism Board, and the City of Tampere for various aspects of this trip. Although I was on their dime, the profuse praise you are going to read in the coming weeks was not remotely influenced by their sponsorship.
