My family and I were on a bus heading to Oulanka National Park with some friends of my mother. I didn’t know any of them and it was really awkward for me. I didn’t even know where we were going to because a friend of my mother who paid the whole trip wanted to keep it as a secret.
The bus drive was a nightmare! It took approximate 13 hours or more to get there. To make the bus drive even better there were some babies crying most of the time and some old people telling lame jokes. The worst part was when our bus just stopped working in middle of nowhere. Don’t worry, it was only -33 degree outside. I was freezing. But after 30minutes we got a new bud and it took only two hours to get there after that.
We spent our time in big cottage which name I can’t remeber. At the cottage, I didn’t know anyone, but I made some friends there. So good that I don’t remember their names anymore!
Nature was really beutiful and there was a lovely silence outside. However there was nothing to do. I spent my time playing board games with strangers and eating, of course.
When we went back home at 4am our bus got stuck on an uphill road because it was so icy. After 20minutes, we got our bus moving again and we went back home. Not such a good trip I’m afraid.
