Of  travel that always feels heavy

We are back home, after traveling 2100 km by car and 1400 km by train in 11 days, to Kilpisjärvi (and Tromsø) and back. I haven't yet looked at the photographs, but there are plenty of them waiting on the memory cards.

The weather is hot, up to +30 °C today; I thought about riding the bicycle, but that remains to be seen. There is some cleaning up to be done, and the washing machine will be busy today...

Their odorous sighs up to the smiling air

There is some driving by car in the program today, we are going west from Kajaani. Temperature will be near +30 °C. The hot weather is not giving up any day soon. Even the nights are warm, and humidity is then at 90%. I'm not sure if I should complain about this, or try to enjoy the tropical feeling.

Yesterday, before I swam

We are now in Kajaani, and it is hot, +28 °C, and there has also been some rain. We tested Kaukavesi swimming center in Kajaani, and it was good. The place wasn't crowded, only a couple of other people in addition to us.

The photographs were taken in Särkänniemi on July 3rd.
