It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Well, turns out I’m not too good with time management. Especially when there’s a big thing waiting at the horizon. And that big thing is actually already here. The next adventure has begun.

One thing pretty much everyone that knows me just a little can tell you is that I don’t like summer. Not at all. So it seems only natural that I wish myself as far up north as possible during the summer months.

Well, this year I’m going up north. Very far up north.

I’ve been talking about this trip for a couple of years by now. What started as a spontaneously blurted out idea became this big thing I worked towards ever since. There have been a few changes along the way, but nothing was going to stop me. Until the end of September I will be travelling through Scandinavia.

The first few steps have already been made, although Germany, Denmark and Sweden were mere layovers. Currently I’m on a ferry to Turku, Finland, where the real road trippin will start.

Regarding the route — well, I don’t really have one. I have a general idea — up through Finland until I reach the North Cape and then back down through Norway, and if there’s enough time left a little detour to the Faroe Islands. Everything in between will be decided spontaneously. Maybe I decided to do it that way because I like to not know what the next day brings. Or maybe because I ran out of time to plan. Who knows.

One thing I’m worrying just a tiny bit about is the fact that I’m travelling alone. Although I have absolutely no problem with being alone and travelling on my own does have many benefits, sometimes it would be nice to have someone with you. For example, when you’re sleeping at a highway stop; not the most refreshing night of sleep, let me tell you. But I’m sure I’ll make some friends along the way.

Well, that’s probably it for now. I do plan on posting more Scandinavia and Road Trippin related content, but who knows when that’s going to happen. At least now I have the excuse of not knowing when I’ll next have electricity.

Love, Jacky N.
