Winter Wonderland In Tampere!

Since arriving back in Tampere this is the first day of constant snow fall. Since this morning about another 3 inches has fallen meaning that the paths aren’t as icy to walk on and it makes walking more enjoyable!

My friend went ice skating on the lake yesterday and said it was so magical and everything in the distance is just white. I bought some ice skates from a flea market in the summer for 4 euros and I’m so excited to try them out.

So, I headed down to the lake today to have a look, but the sky was so white and you couldn’t see anything in the distance so I really don’t think I would have found my way back as well as there being loads of  snow on top of the frozen lake so I didn’t want to take a chance !

Anyway from my pictures you can see how beautiful it looks and I went for a walk along one of the trails by the lake and there was no one about. All you could hear was snow falling and I couldn’t think of a better place to be in the world. I really am so lucky to have a chance to live in this beautiful country!

As for the lake there has been people even skiing on it this week which is crazy!!! I love cross country skiing, but I don’t think I’m quite ready to try it out on the lake haha. There was also a few Finns dotted about doing ice fishing, how there would be any fish in the cold temperatures I don’t know!
