Although green lands consume

Here you see Tromsø and the surrounding islands and mountains from mount Storsteinen, which we visited on July 18th. We walked on the mount, checking out a place where there was still some snow remaining.

Yesterday I rode the bicycle for 1 1/2 hours. Today is promising to be a hot day, up to +30 °C. There might be swimming in the program.

Hi Juhaa, Just thought I'd stop by to let you know I'm enjoying the vistas you've been posting from your trip. It's a real joy to be seeing this part of the world. Thanks.

Thanks, Cedric.

I have got hooked on Lapland. Since returning I have borrowed from the library a dozen books about Lapland and related topics such as wilderness trekking. And I have started planning what to do next summer, what places to visit in Lapland etc.
