Besides various family activities, I watch lots of films in my spare time. In addition to that, I like to go outside and ice-skate on the lake, or enjoy nature walks. I dream of when we have long periods without snow and when the ice on Lake Näsijärvi is strong. It’s hard to imagine a more entertaining winter’s activity than taking an ice-skating trip to Pallosaari, and enjoying snacks when you arrive.
