Day 3 – Tour de Finlande 2010: Kemi-Tervola

I left this morning with no big hurry from Kemi. The weather, like in the last days, has been unstable, but at the end of the day I got just a little bit of rain. Leaving the coastal road and heading towards Rovaniemi, the landscape changed accordingly: more up and downhill, which is not a problem as long as you don't have headwind.

I got anyway quite fast to Tervola, passing through the wonderful sceneries of the countryside of Southern Lapland, which reaches its best at Paakkola (Markku will thank me forever about this). The picture didn't came out as good as I thought, as a leaf of grass just got between the camera and me. Well someone might say that that hasn't been a big loss, and it might also be right.

Thanks to Hannele and her mother I had the chance to find another couch to spend the night, so the first experience in my tent will shift further north. This trip is already some sort of fantastic if I think at the hospitality of people!
