“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ―

SNOWED OUT IVALO
That’s possibly how Ivalo (Finland) looks the year round. This is one heck of a place to catch the Northern Lights. And no I wasn’t visiting Ivalo, but the DH was; a month back.
This winter wonderland was a sight to behold, except that as the temperatures hovered at -25, my man from the temperate land, had a tough time keeping up with the cold and snow.
But what a stunning landscape, with the Aurora Borealis (Northern lights) to boot. Ivalo was on the bucket list of my places to go. Especially for the Northern lights. I’m glad I saw Ivalo through the DH’s eyes. It’s now been struck off from my bucket list, as I’m too chicken to handle any place as cold as this. Give me the tropical sea any day, folks! But Northern light I got to see, irrespective of the sea!
