Frozen North

I had a great trip to Umeå. After all the mayhem at the airport the day before, Jens and I were fortunate to get our flight with only minor delays (despite SAS being the most on-time airline in the world).  In Umeå I was lucky to be hosted by Pete and Carol, and had lots of fun with their kids Vincent and Torben.  It was great to have a family dinner, and made me think about spending time with my nieces when I go back to Canada.  Since it snowed a whole bunch a few days before I got there, we went out on kick sleds after dinner.  Fun!

I was only there for a few days and haven’t been there for a long time, so I organized a ‘pub night’ after work.  We went to a Scottish bar for dinner and some pitchers.  It was nice to see everyone in a social way.  It was also nice to walk around Umeå a bit.

One thought on “Frozen North”

  1. Bwahahahaha – baby in a corner. Awesome!

    You look the ideal snow angel. Also, navy is a really good colour for you. The kicksleds look fun – and ergonomic? Maybe the snow is more dry than here? It looks like it would work best on dry snow.
