My perfect FT Weekend would be...

Experiencing the enchanting world of Finnish Lapland through the eyes of my young son

A Narnia land with blankets of snow begging for footprints and toboggan tracks. A log cabin is our retreat where we snuggle under blankets to hear tales of Moomintroll. Sleigh bells herald a team of huskies, keen to take us on a magical journey to meet a Very Important Person and his reindeer. We dance by the light of the moon, and witness the Aurora Borealis with its rainbow colours. We scour the sky for Peter Pan's second star to the right which shines in the night to tell us that the dreams we plan really can come true.
