Because of the project work, I've been done quite a few trips to Oulu and Rovaniemi. I should say travelling by car is not the nicest thing to do in this period of time. It was dark two weeks ago without snow. Then snow did fall and stay, but rising temperature made most of the snow melt. Road becomes extremely slippery.

We hit the road to Rovaniemi around 8 am yesterday. I was travelling together with a team member by car. She seems to be the most careful driver that I have ever known. She kept the speed at 70 km/hour all the way from Kemi to Rovaniemi. To my understanding, it takes a person to "fly" with the car, and it also takes a person to drive slowly continously. Don't get me wrong, I am glad to be on a safe trip in so awful weather and road conditions. I just assume that she was too careful. A number of cars and trucks passed us by. They had to since we were kind of in the middle of the way. :D She commented 'Safety is always No.1 piority, even that means we will arrive late!' I was kinda afraid we might get a ticket for driving too slow.

It turned out that we arrived at the meeintg just on time. Two-hour driving went 'smoothly' indeed. Two-hour sitting in car was uncomfortable though. The moment I stepped out of the car, breathed the cold air and stood on the thicker snow, I felt actually quite good.


  • Nice and thoughtful blog.

  • My name is Carri. I'm a screenwriter in Los Angeles, California doing research for a TV program on the sleeping habits of children all over the world, ages 6 to 12. I'd like to include children from Finland. I'm wondering if you could help me. I'm specifically look-ing for where children sleep (In the same bedroom with other siblings? What do their rooms look like? What are their bedtime rituals? Do they sleep with extra blankets in the summer because it’s still chilly up there? Must they close the curtains at night to keep the midnight sun from waking them up? What do they dream about? Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction and provide some colorful anecdotes? This is meant to be a sweet piece on children, for children.
    Please email me at
    thank you.
