It was the last leg of my trip. Mentally I felt great but physically, my shoulders ached from carrying my camera and backpack around. Worst of all was the state of my feet. It worked hard. I felt like during my entire trip, I've walked enough to cover the entire year. Every morning for the second half of my trip, the first step I took when I got off the bed hurts like a reminder from my body to slow the hell down a little thanksverymuch. Pity my mind tends to be more fiery than my body. Anyway, so after the warmer climate of England, Finland was cold and rainy and that pulled my level of enthusiasm down a little.
Good thing I foresaw that when I was planning and had deliberately put Finland as my last stop so that I can slowly ease back into regular life while staying at my friend's place. That was real nice of them to let me intrude on them for quite a few days by the way.
It was also on their suggestion that I visit Porvoo. So, mustering all the last shreds of energy I have left in me, I decided to make my way there on the last day of my trip.
