Things have been happening here. Monday evening I pitched my last camp in Nordmarka, a forested area north of our capital. When I woke up Tuesday morning, there was actually frost on the ground! All the same, it was good to spend one last night in my tent, reflect on my experiences of these last few months, and not arrive home exhausted.
From Nordmarka it was just a short stretch in to Oslo. I actually rode straight to the TV station, because NRK’s breakfast talk show wanted to do an interview.
Then I headed home on two wheels, home to my own door, and not least of all my own shower! Well, I do admit that I have showered since the 1st of May, but there is something special about standing underneath a spray of hot water in your own home. It’s like your body and mind realize that it is finally all over.
It had been more than five months since I sat in my sofa drinking coffee. Now after I got home, I’m sure that I’ve tested every single chair in my living room. Sitting there the almost unreal feeling sinks in: I have arrived at last! Hurrah!!
This has been the very best and my most exciting expedition so far. I want to send my greetings and express my gratitude to each person that has followed me on my voyage.View 3 comments
