  Cycling @ countryside
by city_guy

Ok, I just had to take the challange. I made a trip up north to Kajanni to visit my x's grandma and wow, did it turn out absolutely fantastic. I never knew that the countryside would be so beautiful, after all, I've only heard from people's point of view.

This trip just opened up my eyes. The mere total silence, the emptiness of the hustle and bustle of the city, the lack of fumes and sounds of horns.... the list just goes on.

All I can relate are good things only, I enjoyed my 3 days there doing stuff I never thought I'd do in a very long time. Cycling to the lakes, sleeping extremly early, cutting firewood for the 'Sauna', taking walks and appreciating the pure nature... and this too, goes on.

Note to self: - Make trips like this once every few years.

For those of you who experienced this, I can understand why, and for those who have not... what are you waiting for?


Equipment? I would think you'll have to bring yourself.
