    Why else does anyone in their right mind fly to Kiruna???? Ice Hotel!! Its a great place too, I never thought I'd be warm in a sleeping bag on a bed of ice in -21 C in an igloo but it was the best nights sleep I have had in a long time!!

    I'll get a few more photos posted in a bit!

    It's referred to by the medical profession as rigor mortis REF.

    Be funny if that was the mystery airfield in AR123

    Regarding the good nights sleep - I always sleep soundly in the winter. We do not put the heating on in our bedroom and always leave the window open. I don't know why cold air aids better sleep.

    I'm sorry to say that I didn't go to Kiruna airport or Gallivare airport when I was last there. Stayed in Gallivare but didn't know it even had an airfield,only a big open cast mine(biggest in Europe). Better open my eyes next time.

    On deck of a ship in a force 7 at minus 25 in shirtsleeves and you go instantly numb, that might have been the vodka though! Easy to sleep then, waking up is the issue . My first view of large lumps of ice in the sea. Shame the cabin was next to the engine room and like an oven!
