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.
Again, returning on the same road, I was on familiar territory. I knew exactly where the best places were to swim. I had 2 swims. The water was lovely.
I am returning to normal life, and leaving arctic cycler behind (until the next adventure). My bear-like looks will be left behind with arctic cycler. I will return as Matthew. Shaven and clean.
People are partying outside. Live music is blaring. I don’t mind. I’m content to lie in my hotel room and glow. I’ve made it.
