Blogging and cycling south fast do not go easily together, hence I am way behind on our journey through Scandinavia. I will write a full version when I get to sit still for a couple of days again. For now I’ll just give you a quick update on where we are and have been.
We caught the Norwegian fast coastal ferry, the Hurtigruten from Trondheim to Bodø and then another ferry out to the Lofoten Islands. We continued cycling north through these stunning islands, became farm hands for a couple of days, had a big mechanical with Jerry’s bike and arrived in Tromsø. From there we took the Hurtigruten again, via Hammerfest, to Honningsvåg right at the north of Norway and cycled/walked to the most northerly point on continental Europe. Since then we have been cycling south through Finland, averaging over 50 miles (80km) a day for two and a half weeks. So we are now just 60 miles (100 km) north of Helsinki. Here are a few pictures of our trip:
