A Trip to Rovaniemi and the Arctic Circle, Lapland, Finland - 28th November 1999

Nosher and Sis fly over to Helsinki with the Old Man, who's heading back to work over there teaching radar to air traffic controllers. Sis ends up moving seats half way through the flight as apparently she wasn't appreciating the ongoing discussions about various plane-crash disasters. Once there, we all head up to Rovaniemi, on the Arctic Circle in Lapland, and visit Santa Park - home of the actual real Santa Clause - and the Arktikum museum of Rovaniemi
