05/11 Entering Finland
05/11 I needed a break (e.g. to update this webpage)
- so I checked into a room in a more serious motel in Uusikaupunki.
05/15 Impressions from Pori
05/16 Still with bicycle
06/16 So much sun, it is a pleasure to ride the bike,
just the chocolate melts and the cookies glue together.
06/17 Office day at the camping ground in Mericarvia.
You see here 2 different instances of Klaus Ku. from Germany. Both on the way North.
06/19 wearing rain clothes.
06/20 Here, I had an accident with Klaus.
He stopped abruptly and I was not fully concentrated for a second.
So, I ran into him. This resulted in a severe bended fork and a broken low-rider,
responsible for carrying the front bags. No more cycling is possible that way.
06/21 I tried to repair the bike, I checked with a couple of
bicycle shops, exchanged some parts, tested other. The forks were not compatible.
The fixes we did were never sufficient for a trip into the remote areas
of Scandinavia. I had to order the parts from my dealer in Germany.
06/20 This gave me enough time to read the press. All about the
big Stockholm event: The marriage of Victoria, the Crown Princess of Sweden.
06/23 Further more, I did some sight seeing in Vaasa,
06/22 updated my iPhone to iOS 4 at the Camping,
06/23 watched the nature
06/23 and enjoyed the incredible sun of midsummer.
06/29 Finally, after 10 days, the package with my spare parts
from Germany has arrived and I fixed the bicycle.
06/30 This is what the grass look like after I have removed my tent.
