The View From The Lodge

After years of never going anywhere that could even top somewhere such as Lisdoonvarna, we finally persuaded our teachers to send us off somewhere. A few of us ended up going with Miss O'Keeffe & Miss Breen to Finland for a week of fun in the snow. It was such a great time. We stayed in log cabins too which was great.

This was our second last year of school, the average was about 17, about 13 lads and a couple of very quiet girls that none of us can even remember being there. God love our two teachers for bringing us. The first thing we did when we got to the hotel was to have an all out Snow War, not a fight, it was war. Imagine that you had hardly ever seen snow in your life and felt like you needed to make up for missing out on somehting....thats what we did.

We were staying in log cabins right up on top of the mountain which was pretty cool except for the fact that each cabin slept 4 and there were only two beds.....we did what any other 17 year old boys would do in such a situation and fought for the beds!

The skiing actually wasnt too hard to pick up either so we ended up having such a great time and having such great falls too!!
