heinäkuu.

July has always been a time-to-travel month for me. for the past four summers at least I had travelled north. now that I live in Helsinki I will travel norther.
destination: Kilpisjärvi and beyond!
Jacopo and I have great expectations from this trip. we haven't planned all our stops along the journey yet - as we want them to be spontaneous and unexpected. all we know is that we want to reach at least Kilpisjärvi.
✻ how the area looks on google maps.
I am looking forward to our 14-days-trip. I am preparing myself by collecting a lot of photographic material - as much as I will be able to bring along.
I have also come across an interesting book: "In Lapponia con Acerbi" by Vittorio Poli:
✻ when Acerbi wrote "Travels through Sweden, Finland and Lapland to the North Cape" in 1798 he also stopped by Kilpisjärvi.
my countdown says 11 days to go!
