Never say never

While reading messages on our facebook page and on our livemedia.gr reports, besides witnessing the admiration and wishes for safe travels from most followers, I noticed a phrase that 3-4 different of them wrote...   Vaguely the phrase was: “thank you for doing...

Alta to Tromso, 5 days road

Five days to cover 400 kilometres? An average tourist might have done it in a single day or maximum two, winter time. We could be still driving for five more days. In anyway this is a breathtaking route. The national road E6 twists, climbs, descends and extends next...

When did you enter Norway?

Finally we met fellow overlanders - this was only the third time since we entered Scandinavia two and half months ago. A couple from Germany, friends of our friends with a monstrous 4x4 truck fitted with a 15-litre, 450 hp engine, automatic gearbox and a full-size...

Northern lights hunters

The first time is very special, almost like an incredible gift of nature. The second night you start believing it's true. And soon you get addicted.  It was September 27th, the night we parked on the lakeside gravel road that crosses Koli national park. Koli is at...

Life below zero

It’s not only tricky driving on ice. At temperatures below zero - we had down to -6 in the last two nights - we face different other problems, which test ourselves and our Iveco’s systems. We are OK with that, we will survive and we already enjoy arctic clima. But we...

Iveco on the rocks

It’s only 19 October and here is the first snow. In Lapland of course.  We spent two days at Hetta, the last village in Finland, before entering in Norway. We were nicely accommodated at a parking lot downtown with 220V outlets. Yesterday we crossed the border on the...

We saw Aurora Borealis

Yesterday we saw Aurora Borealis for the very first time. From 62nd parallel and inside the Koli National Park of Finland.  We were wondering all these days - Vula in particular - that sooner than later we would see northern lights. Personally I was not confident it...

Humans in harmony with nature

Repovesi National Park. Finland. The first of many we intend to explore in Finland. We don’t want to write much here - you can see on our pictures what is this place about. We would only like to tell you 2-3 things about the park’s regulation, which will give you an...

Good morning Finland!

We left Tallinn last Wednesday with clear sky and arrived to Helsinki with dark clouds and strong winds. Everything looked grey. We left the port after a short control by local customs: “why do you travel with Italian plates since you are Greeks?”, asked the young...

Cycling in Kaunas

In Kaunas we spent two days, a rainy and a sunny one. The first we stayed in the camper in the middle of a quiet neighbourhood in the suburbs. The second we took our bikes and explored the old town.   In Kaunas we spent two days, a rainy and a sunny one. The first we...
