It’s been a pretty long day but we arrived in Kittila finally at around 1pm local time (2 hours ahead of UK time). The transfer on the bus took all of 20 minutes although the sun had gone down not long after we arrived at the hotel (there is only 4 hours of sunlight during the day here at the moment).
Since then, we have sat through an orientation session, eaten dinner in the restaurant (not bad at all for buffet and included mulled wine 🙂 ), taken a nice walk around the local town of Levi (the kids were pulled along in sledges so they were all set) and finished up with a shower before getting settled for bed.
The town of Levi is stunningly beautiful, especially at night with the twinkling of the lights set against the snowy roads and ski slopes.
Tomorrow we set out early doors to Santa’s workshop to play football with some elves, bake some gingerbread cookies, check out the mail room and see Santa himself 🙂
Daddy is trying to persuade all to have a ski taster session – wish him luck as there appears to be resistance in the force…
