"Lapland Chic" from the New York Times Magazine
I'd give my firstborn to go to Lapland right now (not really...my second born though). Reindeer, moss, sauna [pronounced SAOWna], lihapullat: what more could one ask for?
"Others have their homes to go to, to the comfort of their houses,
But my home is in the backwoods, my estate is on the heather,
As my hearth is in the wind, sauna steam is in the rain."
--From the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala
