My wife and I have been on a 1-week vacation to Sirkka, Finland – which is better known as the winter sport destination “Levi“.
If you ever get the chance to visit Sirkka, especially in the “cold season”, definitely go there!
Even though we’ve got nice winter landscapes here in Austria, the Finnish winter has been a whole new experience. I’ve been dreaming of seeing the Aurora Borealis with my own eyes for a while now, and luckily this dream came true on Feb 11, 2019! I’ll devote a separate blogpost to my experiences trying to capture this phenomenal natural spectacle, as well as a quick “review” of my new (?perfect?) camera bag that accompanied me along this trip.
ProTip: If you’re up there, way north of the polar circle, try not to stay in sauna all the time – you’ll miss what’s going on above you!
