Last night patience was needed!

After driving 30 km to the North, we arrived at 9:30pm then the patience was worthed! The sky was full of stars and the Northern lights were amazing!

Yesterday it was -18 degree. Fortunately, we have the wooden cottage in the middle of forest to keep us warm during 5 hours. Making the fire and enjoying hot berry juice and karelian pie is a great combination in the cold weather!
