This week on Stop Having a Boring Life

Ice Fishing Finnish Lapland

Moi from Finland, SHABL!

Far from vacationing in St. Lucia, I’m currently traveling around Suomi aka Finland with my partner in crime- my iPhone. I’ll be here for about 2 1/2 weeks in total as a guest of Visit Finland on a not-so-typical press trip in which I’ve taken over their Instagram account. You can read more of the details over on The Blonde Gypsy or follow along @OurFinland and @TheBlondeGypsy, but right here and right now I want to make up for lost time with a little video I put together just for you guys.

Considering it has to do with a topic that is often discussed on this blog, one that I have NEVER been able to contribute to, I have to say I am super stoked I was given the opportunity to do this because Lord knows I couldn’t have attempted it on my own. Also great is that I was able to capture it all on film and turn it into a little episode that will hopefully give you a good sense of what it’s like to go fishing, ice fishing, as far north as you can get in the European Union – Utsjoki in Finnish Lapland.

Kiitos to EPELI KY (Eki Lukkari) for taking me out and showing me the ropes/lines and Maria from Utsjoki Tourism for being such a great fishing companion. If you can’t view the video above for some reason, try this this link.
