Arriving in Paradise

Thursday, December 6th, 2007

Although I only spent a little over a week in Northern Scandinavia this year, I was still incredibly excited to leave and get back to the sun and daylight in Central Europe. On Monday morning we departed from Kuusamo and spent most of the day traveling to get to Davos, Switzerland. Our flight was delayed in Helsinki due to heavy snow and we had to sit on the runway for an extra hour before taking off. So the travel took much longer than anticipated. Highlights of the day included my first experience chatting with the Japanese girls and finishing the book, The Greatest, a biography about Haile Gebrselassie. Upon arriving in Zurich we piled into a rented van and station wagon and drove the two hours to Davos. I finally crawled into bed at 11pm, very tired, and had a deep night of sleep.
