If you are looking for a place to share your travel photos and stories, then try BigRoom.

This could be the problem with the low blood pressure or in so much cold. You need to make yourself warm and take care of the blood pressure. For more information, see the link:

Well in general your feet and hands will turn blue and get frost bite and get colder more easily than the rest of your body because that's where all your nerve endings are. Furthermore, they're the furthest from your heart, so blood flow is weakest there, and that's where all the smallest blood vessels are, thus holding the least amount of blood.
