Why I Love the Arctic Scandinavian Winter

I know it’s only September, but the very first layer of fine, white, powdery snow is covering the mountaintops in Scandinavia. And I can’t help feeling childishly excited about the snow, longing for winter, longing for the first frost, outdoor fun, the hot drink to warm frozen hands and those long nights in front of the fireplace. This is why I love Winter!

  1. Absolutely beautiful post. I worked for a large Scandinavian company for many years and was lucky enough to visit Sweden and Denmark regularly. Stunning. Loving the milky way at the end 🙂

  2. Thank you Bev -and I thought the Milkay Way was a great picture too! Nothing like the night sky during the arctic winter -from milky way to Northern Lights! x
