It was a chilly 0c when I stumbled out of the train in Rovaniemi at 8am. The night before, I had taken a train from Helsinki and spent a very restless night sleeping on a very high bunk in a train. Needless to say, I overslept the next morning and was woken up by the train master in Rovaniemi. I stumbled out, groggy with sleep as I tried to find the hotel. And as luck would have it, it was on a hill and a hill becomes a mountain when you have a 10kg backpack! But after that was done, Liz and I went into high-octane mode and checked out Mr Claus and went on an Arctic boat cruise much later to visit a Lapp reindeer farm. It was a good and full day that we spent in Rovaniemi before we proceeded to Lulea, Sweden.
