Thank you so much for Victoria’s birthday chocolates!

We saw the chocolates after coming back from skiing with her in the afternoon. The hotel also gave her a strawberry chocolate cake with whipped cream! Such a wonderful surprise and delicious treats! Thank you so much for making that special arrangement for her!!

Just to let you know…..we upgraded ourselves to a suite for extra 25€ per night! What a bargain. We got an extra living room plus an in-bathroom sauna!

Thomas stayed in the suite to work all day Thursday while I skied and Victoria learnt how to snowboard, so the extra space was very handy.

So far the trip has been great. I even met a colleague at the Saariselka ski centre. What a small world. Not sighted aurora yet as very cloudy every day. Temp between -6 and -15. Not as cold as warned by friends who were in Finland a week before us.

Going back to bed now. Only 5.40am!
