In Kuopio finding a place to sleep. Indoors as it really is getting to cold to sleep in my tent!
So I decide to go to hostel, the first since the start of my trip.
It was a great decision as I had the change to meet some great people there!

Just after my arrival a Spanish chica checks in as well, my roommate. We start talking and laughing and end up not stopping till we have to split up 2 days later in Leppävirta! Eating pasta dinner for two that night!That same evening an Italian guy shows up and we somehow manage to trick him into going to the Biggest Smoke Sauna with us the next day!

The Sauna does not open till 4, so what to do during the day? The weather is crap, so looking at indoor possibilities. Ice skating not possible as they do not rent out skates (?????), so we end up watching the local crew play ice hockey. Next stop: The Bowling center! Have not done this for ages. I think we drove the other more quiet bowlers a bit crazy with our screams after yet another Strike or Pair! With 124 and 112 points I think we did not do too bad ;-)))

Time to meet up with Simone to shop for beer and sausages and Salmiakki Kostenkorva! We decided to have proper Finnish sauna evening! Maybe the other sauna guests were not amused but we had so much fun! Doing more sauna rounds then anyone else! Sauna, lake jump, while our beers were waiting for us in the lake under the little bridge. I even met up with the Dutch couple I had the great red wine-evening with in Koli! What a coincidence. Then time for dinner break, we made a campfire and grilled our sausages with music coming from my I-pod stereo! Simone even tried to copy the Lumberjack by trying to balance on a woodlog in the lake, which he failed terribly! And back into the sauna again to warm up! This is life! We continued our little gettogether at the hostel! Getting along so well, we agreed to meet up again! Naiara invited us to come to her house in Barcelona, Spain! Count me in!
