Today I didn’t have any hurry in waking up, since my destination wasn’t that far away. Of course at 6:30 I was already awake and ready to start. It’s always like this: when you don’t have to wake up, you end up being awake much earlier than you should.

I have to consider myself lucky: this has been the only full cloudy/rainy day of the trip (Norway doesn’t count: it rains once a day anyway). Last night (and today morning as well) has been very windy, and it left just a last hint of sun, just in time for a reindeer to say good morning just near my tent.

Sleeping at over 300 hundred metres was definitely a quiet choice, but maybe not the best in terms of temperature. During the night I had to add some clothes as the temperature went pretty down. However, the morning was sunny, as the rest of the day, so there’s always a positive side.

What a relief today, cycling without (too much) headwind! A completely different day, which didn’t start very well anyway.

Today it has been the first time during this trip that I had a crisis. I expected it much earlier, in the first days when muscles awake and start to shout: “We’re not ready, wait!”. Well, that’s somehow what happened today.
