I’ve had a couple of nice days with better weather and have been trying to take I easy and enjoy the surroundings. 

Not that hard to do as the surroundings have been very nice!

I found a perfect camping spot right next to the sea and the best part was that there were almost no mosquitoes. 

I was very lucky to have been offered a place to stay in Jakobstad, with a teaching colleague, Emma, and her family. Always great with a nice friendly break, not to mention a hot shower and a great meal!

I’m now on way way even further north and have a vague plan of reaching Happaranda in 4 days. But only a vague plan, not sure what will turn up along the road and it’s the unplanned, serendipitous happenings that are the ones to savour. 

Back to the road…
