VIDEO: Norwegian Winter Skiing (mis)Adventure

by Satu Vänskä-Westgarth May 13, 2015

Easter Escape to the Mountains

by Satu Vänskä-Westgarth April 1, 2013

Bored of wintery mountain pictures with blue skies and lots of white snow yet? I thought I was. I mean I thought I was 100% over and done with winter too. It’s the start of April and the temperatures still drop to −10C (14F) in the mornings. Something is not quite right […]

Taste of an Adventure

by Satu Vänskä-Westgarth March 4, 2013
