Arctic Design Week was happening at the same time while i was in Rovaniemi, so i hopped from Pilke Science Center, Arktikum and a bunch of malls that were hosting the festival. i even made it to one of the live installations by way of a black and white photograph of me there! 🙂
While i tried chasing the Northern Lights on a snowmobile – the experience of the chase turned out to be more exciting than the result itself.
2 hours of driving a mean machine that cuts through snow and camping in the woods was definitely an adventure that i’m glad i signed up for!
When it was time to return to Helsinki though – i managed to do something stupid – book flights for the wrong date. So i eventually landed up taking the train via Oulu. The journey actually turned out to be a wonderful one and i got to experience the world class trains of Finland without planning.
Leading an experimental life as a digital nomad, I started traveling in 2007 while choosing to shuttle between Goa and Mumbai as 'home'. An epic life-changing trip to South America an year later gave birth to this blog, Exotic Gringo.
