    Our rides are usually in this chain https://advrider.com/f/threads/finnish-riding.1094114/ (Finnish riding) but as this one was about four weeks, I guess it's better here. In our blog we already have six parts of this trip, each of them having something like 100 pics and stories (in Finnish but there is translator on the upper right corner of each page). It's gonna be about 12 part all together. We hope you like!

    PART 1: We rode North to visit a castle and to visit Pessimism-musical in a small city called Puolanka, the Center of Pessimism of the World.
    All pics and stories here: https://www.vanhamoto.net/2019/09/davas-1-pessimismi-kainuussa-saa.html
    Maybe not so much for foreigners.

    PART 2: Now we are in the North, entering Finnish Lapland and riding through it.
    Entering the Bears neststone, luckily the bear wasn't there...

    Part 11: Höga kusten and the biggest car museum in Sweden

    Höga kusten on vähän kuin "pikku-Norja", Ruotsin suurin automuseo puolestaan on, no, Ruotsin suurin automuseo. Ehdottomasti visiitin arvoisia.
    Höga kusten is a bit like a little Norway, absolutely worth visiting. The whole story and all pics here: https://www.vanhamoto.net/2020/01/d...1/davas-11-hoga-kusten-ja-ruotsin-suurin.html
