A little Arctic Adventure

Sitting on the Inlandsbanan somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Swedish Lapland and heading south, I am saving my legs a good thousand kilometers of riding through forest and wilderness. A pity perhaps, but sometimes time, although elastic, is of the essence and choices have to be made. But let me start at theContinue reading “A little Arctic Adventure”

Where would you go?

Where would you go if you could travel for a year, if you could choose twelve destinations anywhere in the world to spend a month in each?
