During our trip around Europe we met up with one of our Finnish friends at his summer house just outside of Helsinki. We were told that in order to have a "true Finnish experience" we had to participate in sauna time. Little did we know they would be operating this sauna at 100 degrees Celsius 212 Fahrenheit. That is the boiling point of water. Then we jumped into the Baltic Sea at 17 degrees Celsius 62 degrees Fahrenheit. We didn't realize it until later that we had minor 1st degree burns on our bodies. It makes for a good story at least.
