24 Reasons You Should Never Live in Lapland

Lapland, a region stretching across 4 countries, Norway, Finland, Sweden and Russia. Why ever would you want to go there?

It's not like the white snow glitters all the time





Or you'll walk across frozen rivers...



... in a town that's in both Sweden and Finland




You're really far from civilisation


And who would want to find cute cabins like these?




The locals are a bit hairier than where you're from


And the weather's a bit different, too.



Who'd want to be bothered by Santa and his elves?



Not forgetting his reindeer's



And who'd want to bump into The Big Man Himself in the pub & have a drink with him?!



Or you'll be intimidated meeting snowmen taller than you



Or even ones that are upside down



It's not like you'll have awesome sledding contests



Or you'll walk home with views like this


Or This


Or live somewhere with a backyard like this



Who'd want this street view? 




Or to live with people like these guys


Who'd want to go outside when its so cold your eyelashes (& hat) freeze?



Or work with an awesome team like this



No one wants to see the most northerly church in Sweden every day



Who'd want to see Polar Pink skies?



Or those gorgeous blue one?



Who'd want the chance to see the northern lights almost every day




I mean who would be this happy to be in Lapland?

  5. After spending 5 months in Valkeakoski (small town close to Tampere) I can relate to most of these points, Finland is not the best place to live in ;)

  7. I don't think I'd like to live there, but I definitely want to visit! Much too cold for me, but I wouldn't mind for a little while.
