Weekend at a cottage

Not everyone knows that I’m actually quite the country girl. I’m not afraid of going to a cottage with no running water or electricity. Quite the opposite – usually those extreme conditions make the trip even more enjoyable. Though on this particular cottage we had electricity.

What else? Well I…

… went ice hole dipping eight times – that’s a personal record

… sat in the sauna for almost three hours – also maybe a personal record?

… fell on my arse quite gracefully while running naked to the ice hole

… walked on a frozen lake and almost got a heart attack, when my boot sank a little

… bought new rain boots, which were surprisingly comfortable to walk in (and I dare myself to use them in the city as well)

… laughed a lot

… won Trivial Pursuit after a long and excruciating game

… fell even more in love with the Finnish nature

I thought I would just share this little update of my weekend and share these photos (which I personally love, and I have to say my sister’s phone has superb camera). I hope your Easter was relaxing!

And hey, remember to participate in the jewellery giveaway on the earlier post.

    Ah I’d love to stay somewhere like this! I think I could brave the ice dipping but I’m so bad with heat, I have to admit I can’t last 5 minutes in a sauna! Love these photos of you!

      Haha, I think after the ice dipping you would love the sauna! Normally I wouldn’t last that long you see. 😀 Thank you <3
