It felt like I was overdue for a new adventure, so here I go again. I have the opportunity for some “on site” training at a scientific radar facility. The perk of the training? It’s in Finland!
After an easy red eye out of Boston and a quick connection in Amsterdam, I arrived in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. I had half a day to wander about before meeting the school group that night, so I explored the city a little bit. I have a couple days planned to really enjoy Helsinki after the week of work is over, so I’ll wait to go into detail when I have better photos to share.
Our school is way up north in Sodankylä, Finland, just north of the arctic circle. Not surprisingly, there is no easy way to get there. The next step of the journey was a 12 hour overnight train ride to Rovaniemi, Finland. When the train arrives in Rovaniemi, we have another 2 hours on a bus to the facility in Sodankylä. I’ll share more details about what I’m up to for work throughout the week, so stay tuned.
Hey if it were easy, then it wouldn’t be an adventure, right? To the north!!!
