day 03: fixing some stuff, and ski jumpers (0 comments)
the third day of our trip was rainy again. therefore we focused on getting on north and drove almost all day long. our first stop was in tampere ("the liverpool of north europe", as our travel guide called it), where we wanted to have the lock of our cabin door to be fixed. so we drove to a shop that anna-maria gave us the address of. the guy there was very, very friendly and smart. he partially fixed the lock, so that we can at least leave the camper through the cabin door. that's a big improvement compared to the previous state of the lock, namely being jammed and rendering the cabin door totally unusable. so on the third day, for the first time, we could exit the camper through the cabin door. additionally we had duplicated the key for all the locks at the camper, since the one we got from the car rental service, was worn out and had a good chance to break within the next few days, which we really did not want to risk. we will try to sell it to anna-maria when we return the camper. after having all those rather annoying things done, we drove to kuopio, which is approximately 280km north of tampere. our travel guide said there's a 75m high tower that should give a good view on the surrounding. when we arrived there it was totally foggy so we decided not to go up the tower. instead we found some ski jump which we had a closer look at. there was even one young man doing jumps. we were not sure whether this guy was hired to entertain tourists like us, or if he was really training for some olympic games. well, we took pictures of him, so if he ever gets famous, we'll know for sure. last thing we did for this day was driving to oulu, another 280km going north, which is almost half the way to our first destination, namely the north cape.
