    Unser Stellplatz für heute liegt direkt in der Stadt Tornio, das heißt auch das wir heute die nächste Grenze überschritten haben, herzlich willkommen in Finnland 🇫🇮
    Bei dem guten Wetter haben wir die Chance genutzt und den Skotti Grill angeworfen 🐕
    Der Platz ist ruhig gelegen und sogar mit eigener Sauna 🌫️

    Day 7b - At the Swedish Border

    May 18, 2016 in Finland ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    We arrived in rain-soaked Tornio - a border town to Sweden - and cycled to a 'campsite', which is so water-logged that we have had to rent another Cabin. I'm actually starting to miss sleeping on the ground for some reason.

    We're certainly in a bigger city (it even has traffic lights!) but the choice of food hasn't improved. After a long walk around town, we were forced to concede that (as trip advisor suggested) the best place to get a hot meal was, in fact, Ikea. So we crossed the border on foot to eat in their cafe before coming back to the cabin to finish the day with a sauna (free with the cabin rental, because it's Finland) and a beer.

    Unfortunately I managed to pick up some non-cycling injuries by slipping over in the sauna! So I'll cross into Sweden with some strapped toes and a dose of ibuprofen in my system.
