Anyone ever get the ferry between Helsinki and Stockholm?
I got it with a load of Fins one time. The ice was insane,we had a cabin but we were cheap so it was below water level. The sound of the ice hitting off the boat was crazy. No one was too pleased when I kept making jokes about the Titanic.
Your man on the momobike there, just tearing through.
You can become a bit blase about ice if you're living in a cold place. In Norway ice was basically considered temporary concrete. They'd throw a bit of gravel on it, and the gravel would be black and sort of melt in over time, and that was grand. Ignore the ice. It never melts so it's not in that slippery state. People get used to driving on it (I didn't, other people did), and life carries on. When the fjords freeze over, you put on your skis, harden the fuck up, and ski across the lovely new shortcut.
