Bikers’ avatars: along Troms’ enchanting seaboard

Almost three hundred kilometres on my motorcycle from Alta to Tromso make for –by far– the longest stage during the past eighty days journeying to Nowhere; and also one of the most stunning.

Sevettijärvi, where the wind turns round

…But there has been more to Inari than just indulging myself in yearnings and self-pity. In fact, it has turned out one of the liveliest days in my journey, so far.
