Just in case you didn't think of it, even if you don't have WiFi you can type your thoughts with notepad or word or whatever software program you like and then when you get some WiFi you can just cut and paste and blammo a quick update.

Nice pics from the land of ice and snow, land of the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.

Today's update!

Route: Tysfjord-Mosjoen (E6 road) 416 Km

Most of the day under the rain and at 8-12C (coldest point: 7C at the Artic Circle Centre in the Saltfjellet mountains)

Feeling of the day: numbed by cold and rain (I'm Mediterranean!!!).

Great landscape all along the E6 but no pics (weather was not inviting...).

I had the feeling it was going to be a boring ride but was completely mistaken! Great views (when not covered by fog and low clouds) and funny road (what a pity it was soaked!).

Long stop at the Artic Circle Centre (Polarsirkelsenteret) for lunch, souvenirs, postcards, getting warm again...

Some muddy road works (yesterday it was gravel and stones, today it was mud what about tomorrow???).

Sleeping in a Norlandia hotel in Mosjoen. Not a cosy one, but convenient (started to rain again, wind was awfully cold and wanted to stop and have a hot shower!).

Going to bed, I'm tired!


Pics of the day:


Polarsirkelsenteret (I speak a bit of Norwegian!!!):






Mandatory pic at the main entrace:





Warm lunch:





Found this lovely guy while getting some souvenirs...





And another mandatory pic outside:





Nice milestone!





Heidi in the E6 (some point between the Polarsirkelsenteret and the city of Mo i Rana):





Our home today (not proud of it, but was frozen and wanted to stop!):





Washing day (had spilt a coffee with milk on my lap this midday...):





'Sanber' taking care of Heidi's key:

Bon Dia Marta! Thanks for the lovely report! I hope Norway is treating you well. My wife and I took our honeymoon riding from Germany - Norway and finally ended up living in BCN for 3 months. It's so beautiful up there, I hope it doesn't rain too much.

Yup, loving the Photo's and your RR... Nice to have some extra "passengers" along. I can't believe you are in the spring/Summer and the Temperatures are still pretty cool. Down here in Sunny South Africa it was -2 with a high of 11 Celsius for the day. Take care

Love it.

Good on you girls. You are doing really well.
Love your story and your pics, it is so different to any man's report. On the other hand, it is so same as you are a part of the big ADV family.

Keep it coming. Have fun and safe return.
