Day T-2: Northbound

I wake up tired after a restless night. Like always before heading into a new adventure - leaving the comfort of home, exchanging it for the unexpected.

A ride in Fredy's new (old) red Volvo (thanks;) and three flights take me to Alta. While Zurich and Copenhagen look like ghost airports, Oslo is super busy and the flight to Alta packed.

Rain awaits me in Alta and my rain gear already has its first practical test on the way to the supermarket, where I stock up on food for the coming days. I'm not in a rush and by the time I leave the supermarket, the rain has stopped and I walk a bit out of town to pitch my tent at a nearby beach.

    So many times I bring Sandro to the airport where he begins one of his wonderful trails.
    He looks as always strong and happy, very ready for a new adventure.
    And me, sadly, have to turn around. This time in my new, old red Volvo:))

    But I am happy for you.
    Very good you can make this blog. Always looking forward to it.
    Machs guet und gib sorg
    Gruess Fredy

    I have just caught up on the latest 12 days.loved the Topsy. (Chocolate ice cream on a stick). You write so well I feel as if I am there. Just following you on the map doesn't give you the impression of the beauty and variety of the terrain. Looking
    Forward to the next installment.
