‘Round the World in 20 Days: Finnish Lapland

If you have been reading my posts, you’d know that we have reached the end of my ‘Round the World in 20 Days series. Finland. The first destination of my little RTW trip.

Finland because I really wanted to see the Northern lights as it was the best time in years to view the elusive Aurora. I was deciding between Finland or Iceland but since the husband was not joining my RTW trip, I chose to save Iceland when he could come. Yes I want the blue lagoon experience with my man that’s why :p

Finnish Lapland. Northern light. Reindeers and huskies. Santa?

I ate Rudolph...sorry Santa.

Oh yes, of course I stayed in the glass igloo!!!

I was not lucky to catch a glimpse of the northern lights but I loved the experience of traveling solo. It was my first time to travel somewhere where I was not meeting anyone I know in that destination, or with the crew on a layover. I met ex-colleagues in Helsinki but from Ivalo to Lapland, it was me myself and I…And my suitcase filled with thick winter coats and bikinis 🙂

Plus, it is so amazing to fly over the Arctic!

Flying over continents and countries in 20 days, jumping from airplane to another, packing and unpacking from one hotel to another may be crazy. But being a Flight Attendant for 8 years, I am used to it. It was my lifestyle. You should see how crazy our flying roster can be!

The trip is so meaningful to me as it was a trip I organized before I handed in my wings and became a full time housewife.

Im happy I did it. Travel will always be part of me.xo
