 I am at the airport now after having spent the last month in Finland. My time here was mostly spent training in swordsmanship for anywhere between 2 and 6 hours a day.

Other than swordfighting stuff, I have visited Lapland, which was the coldest environment I have ever visited and it didn't even reach -20 C. I also walked across a frozen lake and enjoyed the sauna with rolling in the snow, I rolled in the snow 4 times but C was only willing to do it once. While we were in Lapland for three nights we didn't get to see the Aurora, it was cloudy for two nights and there was no aurora on the third.

I thought I would have lots of time to write and work on websites while I was staying here but I haven't had as much focus as I thought I would in fact I haven't even spent as much time on solo training as I was expecting to. Partly this is because my expectations were unrealistic but I also spent much of my time watching TV shows with my Chilean housemate at the Salle, where I have been staying. 

On the topic of which Avatar the legend of Korra is really good, every season is different and the conflicts the characters are trying to solve come organically out of the previous series solutions as well as repercussions of the characters own actions. Gotham is also pretty good.

Helsinki is a small place and generally very cold by my standards, thankfully I have an excellent coat and I had plenty of things to do while I was here but I don't think it would be a good place to visit solely as a tourist. I fly to Gdansk in Poland in a few minutes where I don't plan on doing any sword training whatsoever, which should be good.
