May 09, 2006
I spent the weekend biking around a sun kissed Island of total bliss.... we started off in Turku a city just south and west of Helsinki we visited a castel there and then went to a few bars durring the night. One was a school house converted into a bar, a bank converted to a bar and a toilett converted into a bar..We stayed in a hotel that had no front desk you just get a password that lets you into your room..it was weird(the hotel of the future)...we took a ferry through the archeopelogical and landed in merhermini Åland. We rented our gear free pettel backwards to break; gheto bikes and headed off down the road...bags attached to the rear of our bikes... we rode about 40 kilometers through country side and farm land, on bridges over crystal clear water... we ended up at a camp ground after stopping at a store that was attached to the owners house. We knocked on his front door and he opened up the shop just for us...we raided the store like a college kid does when they are 'home' for the weekend... then we attached bread sausages and 12 packs of beer on to our bannana seat beach cruisers and headed off to the cabins at a camp ground by the sea... we spent the night saunaing, BBQing and drinking, the next day we did it all over agian and then took the ferry back to Helsinki and got back monday am...
