The winter season is almost over but one more trip is waiting. The Nordic Championships will be in Sweden, Riksgränsen in the middle of May. Before that I will have time to work and do some schoolwork as well. My body is not in shape at the moment, I got some flu in Romania and I still dont feel good but I hope I will be fine really soon.
I came back to Finland last weekend, before that I stopped by in Germany, Freiburg for 3 days, it was lovely summer weather there. I drove through Germany to Travemunde and took the ferry to Helsinki, it was a lot of traffic on the roads in Germany and bad weather, but luckily I had time enough and I was in time in the harbour.
What a nice competition trip! I came back from Romania 3 days ago with fever and flu but I had anyway a great time, it was a special trip. It is not every day you see horses parked outside the bar or you go up to the hut with a Coca Cola gondola that is almost 40 years old!
The organizers did a great work, hope some other FWQ organizers will learn from the Romanians. This trip was much more than a competition, I met a lot of friendly people and I also learned to know a small part of Romania. I took so many photos so it will be hard to just choose some for the blog.
On the way to Balea Lac. Balea Lac is a skicenter with no lifts, just one old gondola that takes you up to the huts. Hike and ride is the thing:)
First riding day in Romania, hiking with the Dutch crew
Balea Lac, Transylvania. Ice church, ice bar, ice hotel, the choice is yours.
...the trip to Romania is behind and soon I will leave Austria for one more time. Me and my yellow Tigra will soon be back home in Finland again.
It has been more splitboarding than expected this season. It is so nice to go for a hike together with friends when the weather is good enough for touring. We did a couple of nice tours last week, you can see some photos from the hikes lower down on this page.
Today I actually went skiing, its not often I feel for going up to the mountain with skis but today I really enjoyed skiing, it was totally cloudy in the valley but higher up were perfect springconditions and sun.
The plan for next week is to go to Romania for some few days. I will do a competition there and then do some sightseeing. In the comp. in Kitzsteinhorn two weeks ago I got 4th, I missed the 3rd place with smallest possible mariginal, but it is not the first time that that happened.
I hope you all enjoy the spring! I do!
Take a look! Some riding from last season: https://vimeo.com/60785169
