[PT] O nosso caminho continua ainda por terras Sami. São centenas de quilómetros quase inóspitos, não há árvores, apenas arbustos, e não se vê ninguém, apenas renas. O fiorde acompanha-nos à esquerda com uma cabana de madeira quase sempre vermelha, uma aqui outra muito mais acolá. Podemos sentir muita tranquilidade neste enorme espaço de natureza.

[EN] Our way continues on the lands of the Sami People. Hundreds of kilometers almost always inhospitable, without a single tree, just small bushes, and with almost no people, just reindeers. The fiord is always on our left with a cabin, usually red, here and there, very distant from each others. We can feel the peace and serenity while cycling in the middle of this pure nature.

 

 

 

[PT] O tempo continua a alterar num estalar de dedos e hoje tivemos chuva e vento forte de frente durante mais de cem quilómetros, estávamos a ficar demasiado cansados! Precisávamos de parar e dormir, o nosso dia continua a medir-se pelos quilómetros que fazemos porque a luz do dia nunca termina. Montámos a tenda rápido e não havia condições para cozinhar, se abríssemos qualquer alforge iria entrar água e molhar tudo, comemos um pequeno chocolate cada um e decidimos dormir poupando assim energias. Acordámos com o sol a obrigar-nos a sair de dentro dos nossos sacos cama para menos 24 graus, estávamos com uma fome devoradora e tínhamos comida de recurso, mas antes de dormir tínhamos esgotado toda a água que transportávamos. Decidimos partir e só depois de 30 km parámos num parque de campismo onde pudemos comer e ficar que nem uns “patos”.

[EN] The weather keeps changing in the blink of an eye and today we had rain and strong winds from the front for more than one hundred kilometers, we were getting too tired and we had to stop and sleep soon. Our days are still measured by the amount of time we cycle because the daylight never goes away. We set up our tent as quick as we could and we had no conditions to cook, if we opened the bags the water would go in and everything would get socked, so we had a small chocolate each and decided to go to sleep and to save the last bit of energy we still had. We woke up with the sun forcing us to get out of our sleeping bags for -24 degrees, we were super hungry and we had some of our oats with nuts, what we did not have was enough water, as we finished it the day before. We decided to leave and only after some 30 kms we finally found a camping park where we could stop a while and have some food.
