Santa Claus Village
5) Meeting the Real SantaThe 'Real' Santa lives in the Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi on the Arctic Circle. There are rein deer rides, great food, post office where one could send letters to their future and others. We met the man himself. He was exactly how we all imagine him to be. Happy, merry, and fun! He promised us that he knew where we all lived and he visited us every christmas. We took some quick pictures with him! Meeting santa was a treat to the little girl in me :)

If there’s one reason to visit Oulu, apart from the spectacular beach and the enticing walkways, it’s the locals. The Finns are a warm and enthusiastic lot and they’ll welcome you into their homes just like they welcome the first speck of summer sunlight. The city, named after the river Oulujoki, lies on Finland’s western banks, opening up into the Gulf of Botnia.
