    This looks like a nice place to take a nap. Thanks for the beautiful original photos.

    What about people who went away because of ice?

    ^^ Finland. Took a day trip by boat and it was the dullest place I've ever been to. Felt like a former Soviet country.

    Winter is nigh, you will see Swedish ice soon.

    'is'

    ^^^
    Mita Vittua ?!!! ....... perkele :twisted:

    Q: How do you tell an extroverted Finn?
    A: He's the one looking down at your shoes when he's talking to you.

    Ok Rock, here's one for you:

    A Swede was in a pub in Finland and a regular customer suggested to him:
    "I'll give you $200, if you let me smash ten beer bottles on your head." The Swede thought for a while and finally agreed, partly because of peer pressure.

    The Finn smashed the first bottle on the Swede's head, then the second and so on, but he stopped after smashing nine bottles.

    "So when are you going to smash the tenth bottle?" asked the Swede.
    "I'm not a total idiot," the Finn replied, "then I would have to give you that $200." :)


    Looking for that special hide-a-way for that special little "frigid" someone? The IceHotel in swinging, downtown Jukkasjarvi, Sweden awaits you and that little iceclit of yours :shock:

    "Is it me or is it hot in here?"

    :) I spent about 5 years in Finland. It is a nice place and not like a former Soviet country as you have described it; at least Helsinki (where I lived) is a good city to be in and life is too easy there. People do not work till late hours and do not make work a headache; I liked that part. Everyone in Helsinki speaks good English and there are some very good tennis centers. The only issue and a big one is that people are not very open. They are nice and helpful but introverts and do not talk a lot :/

    I have fond memories of Finland but if I could go back in time, I would have moved to more warmer place and with warmer people.

    Thanks - nice photo. I love nothing more than filling up various plastic containers with water and stashing them in the freezer. I tried the Dunlop three-ball can and I have to give it a C+ at best. The narrow section at the top makes it difficult to retrieve the ice in a timely manner.

    That's just beautiful. Nothing better than taking a huge chunk of ice, pouring some 47pct gin over it, lighting it up and then sipping through a wooden straw while pouring tonic over the fire.

    Well.. it didnt work as well. I did this couple of years ago in Finland. The weather was about -15C so just put the can outside. The problem is tennis balls float so, I cannot have a nice specimen where the ball is in the centre. So I had to add three balls, secondly the water is not nice. For making clear ice you just boil the water or use distilled water.

    I have been to Helsinki couple of times. I love it. Finns are proud people. They dont seem to like Russia that much. And they dont miss a chance to poke fun at their "culturally advanced" Swedish neighbors.

    Next time i have to take that overnight Helsinki-Stockholm ferry. Too many recommendations from friends!

    Finland is a nice place, at least Helsinki is where I lived for 5 years. Most Finns are very reserved and it takes time before they get a bit talkative. I didn't like that part of their culture. The ferry b/w Helsinki and Stockholm is good and your friends are correct; you should do that. I can also recommend the trip b/w Helsinki and Tallinn. It is a very short trip and the ferry drops very close to Tallinn's old town. It is a good one day trip !
