That Day I Met Reindeers

“Santa Claus came from Finland!” said my boyfriend after hearing me insist that Santa Claus came from the North Pole. “We’ve got Santa Claus village to prove it. Plus we have all the reindeers!” Okay, no need to get all defensive. Fine, if you say so, I believe you. (Although a quick Google search claims otherwise. We’re actually both wrong. But you know…potato potahto.)

Now, I don’t know about the famous Santa Claus village he’s referring to but yes I can confirm they’ve got a lot of reindeers in Finland. And the little girl in me is very very happy I met them. That same little girl would also like to pretend one of them was Rudolph…and Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder and Blitzen. ( Is it too early to reference Christmas songs? But then again we’re already in the -ber months and -ber months in the Philippines mean it’s time to start playing Christmas jingles. So, I guess I’m right on track.)

I met the cute reindeers during my trip with Visit Finland and Qatar Airways last October. Part of our itinerary was to visit Nuuksio National Park in Espoo. The agenda? To feed reindeers. (Cue the “awwwwws”) The park is just a couple of hours away by car from Helsinki so it’s within easy reach. Just like that, we were greeted by Finland’s wild natural setting of lush green forests, serene lakes and rugged crags. It was beautiful–even more so when we got to feed the reindeers. Although I think I liked the reindeers more than they liked me. (If you’ve seen my travel diary from Finland, you’ll understand why I believe so. LOL. Watch it here.)
