As pretty as these pictures look, soon after I took them…we gotta whooole lotta rain. And mud up to my knees is really so exciting! 😛 On the plus side, when wearing a few layers it saves weight in your pack! See, there’s always a positive 😉

Rise and shine
Saturday morning, August 12th. I woke up really early, like around 6 am. Not because I’m such an early bird, but simply because an air mattress isn’t as comfortable as my own bed.

There was quite a long queue and I had to wait probably a good hour before I could get on a bus. It was fine, there was still plenty of time andContinue reading “At the start in Nikkaluokta”
