LAPLAND. Last Friday morning I got up at 2AM and traveled to Finland with my whole family – thirteen of us in total. My brother – aged four – and sister – eleven – were the complete embodiment of excitement and, as we arrived at the airport and met up with my Uncle, Aunt and three cousins – all under ten – you couldn’t not become swept up in the… View Post
