  6. My daughter and I loved looking at the photos. We are planning on moving to Oulu next year 🙂

    Comment by Becoming Finnish — February 15, 2017 @ 11:19 | Reply

    • Hello Hayley.

      Very nice to read Your comment. Thank You. We love Oulu. It is beautiful town, lovely sceneries, some great happenings, walkable and bikeable town, University garden, cozy restaurants and its marketplace in the summer is full of life. It has excellent beach (Nallikari), which we love very much. We do not live regularly in Oulu, but we live in Helsinki and visit often Oulu. I can recommend Oulu to You and Your family.

      Welcome. Have a good day!

      Comment by Sartenada — February 15, 2017 @ 13:06 | Reply

      • Thank you for taking the time to tell me about Oulu – it sounds like a wonderful place to live and raise a family. I have visited there a couple of times and think it is beautiful and has a nice vibe 🙂

        Comment by Becoming Finnish — February 15, 2017 @ 13:19 | Reply

        • Hi again.

          To raise a family in good place is important – big thinking! Helsinki is big, but Oulu is not too small, but big enough. It offers everything for everybody. In midwinter, the length of day is only few hours, but summer nights, they are short. In midsummer, there is only twilight, no real nights. 🙂 My wife loves its library. Last week borrowes three books for example. 🙂

  10. Wonderful fun photos! I have never seen the double ski thing with handle bars. I love the expressions of the kids sliding on the one piece of plastic! Watching them makes everyone smile.

    • Hello Marilyn.

      Well, “double ski thing with handle bars”, I think that they are modern kicksleds. Normally we have traditional kicksledges on our countryside. Here is a photo showing:

      Thank You leaving Your kind comment. To me who lives in Finland, it was awesome to see reindeers in the “south”, because Oulu is in the middle of Finland. Nobody has ever told to us.

  16. Great pictures. For some reason I never made it up to the North during winter time. I was only once even up to Levi and that was during summer time, same as Oulu and Rovaniemi where I was for competitions =/

      Thank You for Your kind comment. Best time to visit Lapland is in autumn due to its colorful landscapes and in winter to find and experience Winter Wonderland. These are my personal opinions.

        • Hi, Sue. This year’s reindeer race (open for everyone) was yesterday. It was cool race with great fun and I try to make my post about it, maybe on next week’s Wednesday, I will publish it. I said to my wife that next year I will participate in it and she has to shoot photos. It would be cool if You next year would visit it in Oulu and at the same visit also Snow Castle and the Arctic Circle. There are many interesting places in Lapland to explore. I can present to You ideas for Your visit. If You are really interested to see this race or even to participate in, then tell to me, that I can tell to You more exactly when next race will be. Normally it will be on next Saturday after mid-February.

          See You in Oulu in next February?

          Happy new week.

I’m not sure what 2018 is going to bring at this point but again am so grateful for your offer. Should we get planning a trip in the future I will definitely reach out to you for suggestions. Thanks!
