Day 74: daily routine

Friday, 25 August 2017 Today's kilometers: 40 Total kilometers: 1759 Haven't seen any hikers today. At this point I can tell that a portable music player seems critical to me. Walking has become daily routine. You don't really do anything but walking, eating, sleepinh. A bit of thinking and reading in between. But as the... Continue Reading →

Day 73: Vasaloppsleden

Thursday, 24 August 2017 Today's kilometers: 35 Total kilometers: 1719 The Vasaloppsleden is a very well maintained trail going from Sälen to Mora over a distance of 90km so the perfect place for beginners.

Day 64: free huts in Norway

Tuesday, 15 August 2017 Today's kilometers: 39 Total kilometers: 1475 It's been a cold but dry day. The trail was easy, a bit wet but easy, nd we finally found a free hut in Norway. There we planed the next day while having a coffee. The weather forecast said we will have one the worst... Continue Reading →

Day 62: goodbye

Sunday, 13 August 2017 Today's kilometers: 5 Total kilometers: 1424 Today we are having another restday. This time in Røros, an old town we reached after about an hour from our camp. The hospital was closed or maybe I do find the right entrance, it is a confusing building. But in the afternoon we met... Continue Reading →
