Assuming I awoke on time at dawn I am on my way to the land of my ancestors again. When I last visited in 2006 I had a Finlandia Foundation grant to go visit the ancient rock paintings (thank you!). It was an amazing trip! And you saw the results in Unikirja (if you haven’t now is a perfect time to buy yourself a copy!)
Once again I will get to hang out with my lovely friend Laura, I will meet my cousin Helka and her daughter Anni and some other people who may be related to me. I will first land in Helsinki and then head to the north. I have suggested that I may be riding around on reindeer with jolly old Saint Nick. I will be sure to take photos if that is true.
You can see photos from the last trip here.
