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.
