Today I made my way to Rovaniemi that I knew was a fairly large town but what I didn’t know was that this was the home town of Santa Claus! That’s what the tourist brochure said anyway and who am I to doubt it.
I checked in to the large campsite on the opposite side of the River Kemijoki and found it to be a very pleasant place to stay with ample clean facilities and I good spot with a view across the river towards the town.
In the evening the sun went down and lit up the old road/rail bridge with a really magical light – perhaps Santa does live here after all!
After a good shower I settled down for the night.
