 +<WRAP center justify 100%>
 +Ten nights. Ten nights under the boreal sky, waiting patiently for northen lights to come. Far north surely knows how to keep his treasures secrets...
 +
 +Ten days. Ten days shorter than a short winter day, when sun slides on the Earth, offering to the icy lakes a soft and warm touch of light.
 +
 +Ten days and ten nights. It could have last a whole life, it would never be long enough.

 +  * Parisian people are really too much stressed people.
 +  * That maybe explain why they can be... Well, how to say it politely? ... Really really unpleasants...
 +  * Nevertheless,​ we managed to reach the airport without fighting anyone.
 +  * Check-in was complicated.
 +  * Boarding was complicated.
 +  * We took-off late.
 +  * We landed late.
 +  * We had to run in Helsinki Airport to catch our second flight.
 +  * We managed to board in...
 +  * ... But the pilot couldn'​t take-off!!!
 +  * Navigation stuffs were out of order (!!!)
 +  * So, we began to wait.
 +  * A few.
 +  * A lot.
 +  * Two hours and a half.
 +  * Then, everything was fixed, so we could leave!
 +  * Of course, because of this delay, we missed the bus in Ivalo.
 +  * So we took a taxi to drive us to Inari.
 +  * The owner of the guest house was a bit worry not to have seen us in the bus...
 +  * But, finally, everything ended well!

 +  * The weather wasn't fine, but wasn't bad neither.
 +  * We spent time exploring Inari, in order to find good "​picture-spots"​ facing the North.
 +  * There, we would see Northern Lights.
