Summer in Finland, part I: Cycling Oulu – Kajaani

Summer in Finland, part I: Cycling Oulu – Kajaani

This summer we’ve spent our three weeks of summer holidays in Finland 🙂 We drove from Tromsø to Oulu, breaking the long trip in half by staying in a cabin overnight.

Warning: very long post 🙂 The flight was amazing, we flew straight towards IJmuiden, which is 6km from my parents place so a place I know very well, then turned southwards following the coast until Noordwijk, then turned eastwards and then back northwards towards Schiphol. I saw so many places I knew: Velserbroek, Haarlem, Nieuw Vennep…. With my parents we traced back…
