Not so much. 😉
It was while we were in Finland that I started playing around with ideas for Winter Bounty, the 3rd Polarpol novel. Shameless plug there, eh?
There are hundreds of cabins, many of which are luxurious, on Lake Saimaa. And we were just a few kilometres from the Russian border, which made for a few plot elements, and makes me think about the current war in Ukraine. Just prior to us arriving in Finland, letters had been sent out to all eligible men and women, preparing them for an eventual mobilization as Russia was (2015) rattling one sabre or another. And now (2023) Finland is a part of NATO.
However, Petra’s got other things to worry about in A Dog called Blitzen on Patreon. Day 15, folks! 😉
