As Julien predicted yesterday he didn’t end up getting much sleep last night as his fellow campers were up drinking and partying!
It took him a while to get going this morning; he set off from Pello at about 10.45
Today was a really tough day of cycling as Julien faced a constant headwind and a number of hills along the way.
It took him around 5 hours to cycle 75km to Kolari.
Julien stopped in at a good restaurant and spoke to some locals who say that the wind is not usually as bad as it has been over the last couple of days.
The weather forecast also indicates that the wind speed should drop form 15mph to 10mph tomorrow, which is good news.
Julien decided he did not have the energy to cycle on in such tough conditions and took a shorter day than usual after cycling 47 miles.
He met a really nice Swiss couple called Sylvia and Urs who are also travelling to Nordkapp and expecting to arrive there about the same time as Julien.
Sylvia and Urs were also looking for a campsite in Kolari. But it turned out that there was not one in the town
Instead the three of them found a hut to stay in for night. It is his first night with his own room and a real bed so he should sleep better tonight!
