Kuopio by nature editorial 2022
Imagine a freezing night of biting frost when the deep black sky is dotted with brightly shining stars. I’m skiing leisurely through the silence of a frozen lake on off-track skis. The snow creaks under my skis in the frosty night. There’s no need for a headlamp; the moon lights my way as a ski along the ice. I smile to myself, thinking that just a few kilometres more and I could be at the airport, lean my skis against the wall of the terminal, change into my business clothes and fly off to the capital region or even one of the metropolises in Central Europe.
