Hear Us Scream

By Mridula Dwivedi March 22, 2014 10 Comments , , ,

I did some crazy things in Lapland (Finland) this time. At Levi where we stayed the temperature was always in minus, from -22 to -1! So, the Finns enjoy sitting in a sauna because it is cold and they took us there too. But for some crazy reason they like taking a dip in ice water in between. Now if they could do it, how can we be left behind? So, I also took a dip in icy water and ran back to the sauna.

However we were still not content. We had to go making snow angels. This basically means lying down in snow in your bathing suites and flapping your arms and legs so that the impression in the snow looks like an angel after you get up and run for your life. There are no pictures in the video (and that is why it was easy to post it) but hear us scream as we make snow angels! Boy I was glad to get inside the steaming sauna after this adventure! My feet felt numb for quite sometime even in the sauna. It was for the central heating that I came out alive from this trip. That and the excellent winter gear the Nokia people gave us. It made all the difference.

I have not made this video, I was out there making snow angels and screaming. This was given to me by a member of the Chinese media team, she was sensible and she didn’t do all this! I am now using a Lumia 1020 which was given to me as a member of #LumiainLapland event. This video was also shot on a Lumia 1020.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
