The sun is calling!

After a night in a cabin in what billed itself as the most northerly campsite in the world, it was time to head south.  Far south- Barcelona!  It’s funny how this trip has changed a couple of thousand kilometers into a milk run…

Riding straight south makes how far north Nordkapp is dramatically evident.  Within a few hours the landscape changes from this

Part of the run down means crossing The Circle again, though it’s just a bit different this time around.  To say the Arctic Circle crossing through Finland is a tad commercial would really do discredit to it.  It runs a 24/24, 7/7, 365 days a year Christmas party that would make Walt Disney complain about consumerism.  It’s only redeeming factor is that it’s in the middle on nowhere and you just can’t help but stop… It’s just so amazingly, wonderfully crass.
