Life below zero degrees

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

Vilnius, one more human city

We met an old friend from Russia in the capital of Lithuania, spent the night in a parking lot and enjoyed strolling around the old town.  It was afternoon when we arrive at the capital city of Lithuania without having a clue on where to park and spend the night. In...

Letter from Lithuania

This is our third night in Lithuania and a reason I feel a weird calm inside. How do I explain this state of mind? First, it’s the landscape. Flat, green and full of lakes, in most of which you can swim. Second, it’s the weather that announces the upcoming autumn...

Cycling in Warsaw

Big cities are avoidable the way we travel. They are a pain in the arse to find a proper place to park for the night, to evacuate our waters or fill in with water our camper's tanks. It gets really hard som times  Cities are useful though for shopping or servicing our...

Most depressive place on earth

If we could meter negative energy with a special device, Auschvitz might hold the absolute record. This is the place were the greatest recorder crime against humanity has occured.  The guiding tour in the ex-extortion camp-turned-to-museum is three hours long. During...
