• Destination #2 in Lapland – Rovaniemi

    Tiina Kivelä

    Time to let wilderness rest for a while. My destination #2 will be Rovaniemi, the urban centre of Lapland.

    Highlights: meeting my Lappish girls (too long time no see!), visiting Korundi & Tapio Wirkkala Retrospective Exhibition (today there’s even a tour guided by the curator himself, Harri Koskinen), and last but not least; Arctic Design Dinner at Korundi.

    Later on I’ll write you how much I love Wirkkala’s designs and the girls and the food, but now time to leave these gadgets and this silence and catch up the buss.

    See you later!

    Ps. The picture is taken on midsummer. Now the river is frozen and everything covered in frost.


  • Nordic Skiing Tracks in Lapland

    Capacity for survival may be the ability to be changed by environment.

    iPhone: airplane mode. Girl: skating mode. Workout: cross-country aka nordic skiing. Distance: 20km. Weather: snowing (for days already). Result: tired and very happy.

    I just love these windy nordic skiing tracks in Lapland. And the feeling of achievement afterwards.
