30 January

We have now been in Finland for a week and it is all very interesting, and not too cold either. You definitely need some snow tyres for the smaller roads as they have packed snow and not enough traffic to melt it, otherwise the larger roads are fine.

On Wednesday we went to the gym, went swimming and had a quick sauna, which took most of the afternoon.

Yesterday we went to Helsinki for the day which was a great day out. Thanks to Harry and Mario!
