When I was a child my favorite thing in the countryside was to go to the sauna and then jump in the snow and then run back inside as fast as possible.
It used to be a real competition among my family members. The winner was the one who could lie in the snow longer than others. And the bravest of us made snow angels!
There was a lot of screaming and laughter and afterwards it felt amazingly good. My mind and body was totally freshened up.
Nowadays my kids continue our tradition but I don’t want to leave the comfort of the steam room. But there are times when a combination of sauna and soft white snow gets too tempting…
