Day 48. An overdose of tundra. All I want are 4 walls and a warm bed. It's all in the mind.http://arctic-cycler.com/2013/07/25/day-48-95km-berlevag-batsfjord/

Never thought I'd say so but I really like your nature descritpions (the worst part of our compulsory school books...)
This one is great:
It might be the weather. It is definitely the lack of concrete goal. But more than anything, it is the wild barren nature that is friendly in bright sunshine, and which looks menacing and strong when the clouds pull across, a chill comes into the sun, and a cold wind starts blowing.

It's all in the weather. It's amazing weather now and I'm really happy.
I'll check out the YouTube clip when I have wifi. Greetings from Vardø

Day 50. Beautiful hike in the sun. My own private valley. My own private fjord. Sun in my heart. The smell of cloudberries on my fingers. http://arctic-cycler.com/2013/07/27/day-50-12km-hike-50km-cycle-syltevikmyra-vardo/

Day 51. I could have been cycling in Australia. Desolate plains - the mid north in South Australia. Then with trees - somewhere in New South Wales.
What was a sunny and warm day became exciting as the black clouds drew in.http://arctic-cycler.com/2013/07/28/day-51-113km-vardo-vestre-jakobselv/

Day 53. Today was wet, and warm. Grey and uninspiring until the weather really got erratic. On the back road to Bugøynes, I had a downpour and a beautiful rainbow. http://arctic-cycler.com/2013/07/30/day-53-96km-nuorgam-bugoynes/

Day 56. My bike trip started with heat, and now, in the Arctic, it is ending with heat. Cycling and swimming in the bright sun, exploring the Russian border. Cycling along Pasvikdaken. http://arctic-cycler.com/2013/08/02/day-56-130km-grense-jakobselv-holmfoss/

Day 57. Today was my last day cycling. A small stint in the sun to Kirkenes - where they are partying in the warm sun. It's the city festival - to say goodbye to a tired and contented cycler. http://arctic-cycler.com/2013/08/03/day-57-36km-holmfoss-kirkenes/

Day 58. I cried. Cycling leaving Kirkenes. It's over. And the next adventure is in the planning.
Greeted at the airport by my wonderful friends. Welcome home to real summer. It's hot here. Now night has fallen, and it's dark! http://arctic-cycler.com/2013/08/04/day-58-eindhoven/

Great route! When I cycled in the northern coast, I thought it must be nice to see what's to the end of each road which goes north. Unfortunately, time didn't allow to check... But seems it's worth of effort.
