TRIED & TESTED: SKIING IN RUKA

December 21, 2010

Saturday afternoon I tried some skiing. I did some skiing years ago in Austria and Switzerland, but I got hooked on it again. I like fast sports, I like the cold (because you’re moving, you’re not so cold) and I like the surroundings. The beautiful nature. And in Ruka in Lapland it’s so quiet. It’s really a paradise for ski-lovers.

TRIED & TESTED: LAPLAND

December 20, 2010

What was the temperature?
It was cold. – 20 degrees. But if you’re renting a thermo suit (like the one I’m wearing on the picture) you will stay warm.

What was the nature like?
Beautiful and unspoiled. Snow was everywhere.

Are there any hotspots? Like a designhotel?
No. They don’t have an ice hotel. But they do have cool ice bars.

But if it’s cold and snowy, what can I do the whole day?
Enough. You can rent a snow scooter (that’s the thing I liked most but I like a bit of speed), go on a ride with husky’s, make a picture together with Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer, meet Santa Claus, go skiing, try some ice karting – or simply sit in the sauna.

When goes the sun down?
Around 3.30 pm it’s dark.

Is it romantic?
Well it depends. There are men who propose to their girlfriends in an iglo where the temperature drops down to -4 degrees.

My report in pictures is followed in the next couple of hours. Do you have any questions about Lapland? Ask me!

ON THE ROAD: LAPLAND

December 16, 2010

This afternoon I’m flying to Lapland: home to Santa Claus. I’ve never been there but this last week I can’t stop thinking about it. About the temperature (-20 celcius, can I handle that?), the nature, the reindeers and the sun (is she there or does it feels like night the whole day?). But I’m also looking forward to the purpose of this trip: Marlies Dekkers is taking me. Marlies Dekkers is the queen of lingerie and she is going to show us (the press) her newest collection. I will be back home this Sunday but I won’t be publishing anything till Monday (and that would be my report about this freezing, but wonderful, experience in Lapland).

Have you been to Lapland? What was your experience?
