A photo from... The middle of nowhere in Ylläs

It was not your typical Friday night, nor was I was I wearing your typical Friday night outfit. Despite their fun sounding name, salopettes do not a sexy look make. Yet, they kept me warm and gratefully so, as did my helmet, my thick shapeless jacket and a fleece balaclava. Off we went deep into a dark and snowy forest to the middle of nowhere, in search of the Northern Lights and Santa's holiday house.

We found one but not the other. These photos will reveal which.
But I'm not bitter. I feel enlightened to now know that Santa is a man with some seriously good taste in clothes and interior design.
You can go snowmobiling and Northern Lights hunting with Ylläs Adventures, who supported us on this adventure. The opinions about the fantastic tour, the sex appeal of salopettes and Santa's style are all mine!
