We wanted to go to "hyvää Suomi" this summer. Did the planning, bought a map of Poland and the Baltic-States. Checked the ferry from Helsinki to Travemünde, was close to book it, when Tina saw the weather forecast and sayed "NO - i don't wanna go into that rain and cold". So we decided to give Finland a chance and start to ride east first. So the final decission should be made in Slovenia. For the GPS-Users - here is the GPX file of this tour. (use it as orientation if you want to travel in this area). View attachment 187470 DAY 1 (Penzberg - Kobarid) we started relaxed round noon on small roads east to take the highway at Irschenberg.
