The guys convinced me to go downhill skiing a week ago at Tornimäki, here in Mikkeli. It was my first time and they had a hard time keeping me from turning back, but they succeeded and I succeeded (well, kind of...)
thinking I'd rather stay at the top than brave the steep descent
this is what happens when you go down the hill. First-timers beware!
Afterwards we went back to the church and warmed up with hot chocolate and a Toblerone while playing Carcassonne and Ligretto for hours :) A great day!
