From birdhouse building in Enontekiö we set sail toward Pallasjärvi Lake.

Our second destination in Pallas-Ylläsjärvi National Park started with a sauna. As soon as we drove to the Pallasjärvi office courtyard, they practically ordered us to get in there.

Who were we to say no, especially after two weeks of tent life. This was when it first hit us, that burning question:

Should we move to Lapland?

Sure, it’s just a thought for now, somewhere in the back of our minds. But every decision and every turn seems to bring us closer to that goal.

Where would we live? What kind of work would we do? What kind of education is necessary?

But this was when that little idea was born – ashore Pallasjärvi Lake aka Sea of Lapland.
