Day 40 – Tour de Finlande 2010: Yläne – Lyökki

Watch the full roadmap of the tour Fortunately the thunderstorm that was forecast for today didn’t touch the area where I was.

Day 37 – Tour de Finlande 2010: Lahti – Hämeenlinna

I spent the last night at Lahti Mukkula camping, where there was a gathering of "motorized families", which means Harley Davidson accompanied by their owners and their owners' children.

Fortunately museums and supermarkets have air […]

Sings one day, and then a second, Sings a third from dawn till evening, Sings from evening till the morning; Listen all the stars of […]
