Finnish winter while driving the car

Snow muffles all sounds a white quiet.

You know I used to think that Finns, like their long winters, are just really boring in their stoic reserve,
but I'm beginning to wonder if, like their long winters, they have simply mastered the art of calm.

(Not all Finns, but certainly quite a few.)

I come to your blog with relish! It is so inspiring to dip into your corner of the world.

I am a snow child at heart - often frustrated as we have so little snow - and I love the different shades of white of a winter landscape.

My dentist is a Finn and I really like talking with her!

Oh, wie wunder-, wunderschön! Ich sehne mich so diesem, genau diesem Weiß – ich will es hören, sehen, fühlen, riechen und schmecken. Doch hier ist es nur grau mit Regen, Regen, Regen. Das tut schon fast weh.

Liebe Grüße!

Sehr schön. Wenn es doch nicht nur so kalt wäre :).
