Pay & Run / rainy Sunday afternoon 

Sunday and it rains like hell. Exactly that’s what I thought as well. I ordered an Uber which costs me 16 USD at the end to drop me at this lovely launderette.  It’s not that I didn’t pack enough cloth, my sport gear needed washing, plus  I was bored and wanted to see what it’s…

Munich / Kittilä – Insights 

The alarm was set for 4:30 and the taxi booked for 4:55, boarding at 6am. Mission accomplished. I also managed to read the instruction of the new camera and learned that the chip card I brought isn’t working. There is always a time for something. As we do have 2 hour layover the matter wasn’t…
