Off to Lapland

Juha, our only Finnish friend at IESE, is inviting 20 of us from IESE (inclduing partners) to his home country for the New Year. We are meeting in a town north of Helsinki called Rovaniemi on 29th morning. From there, we are going to take a bus, see Santa Clause ( I didn't know Santa Clause is originally from Finland) and then go to his winter house in the evening.

Six of us including myself, Srijana and Sarita are taking a night train from Helsinki at about 7 pm and arriving to Rovaniemi at 9 in the morning. I am really looking forward to this trip. It will be my first time in Finland and the first time experiencing -30 degree C cold and also the Northern lights ( ).

Prospero Ano Nuevo , todos!

Pretty much EVERYTHING in Finland is "north of Helsinki" :-) Lapland is beautiful, enjoy your trip. Post about whether you are stared at as much as a few friends who have been up there. Even in the ski towns the northern Finns rarely see anyone without white skin. If you're lucky you'll experience -40 degrees- where F and C meet!
