Today it’s the Independence Day of Finland. There’s a Ball on TV (which I don’t watch) and we lit 2 candles. Which is not about being a scrooge but because it’s a Finnish tradition.


The Signs


Signs in Yllas Ski Resort in Finnish Lapland. The place has a special meaning to me. We went to ski there every winter. It was our family vacation. It won’t be the same again since my mother died. But it will always be a place in my heart. I was only 2 months old when I first went to Lapland but then I didn’t anything about skiing.

The ski slope wasn’t closed but when they are, there’s sign like that on the left. That other sign is just there to show where to go.
