From St. Petersburg we had a short one to Finland and home.


Only 200km to the border between Finland and Russian and another 202 km to my home. This took us 7 hours. Border took us ~1 hour and most of that time was spent on Finnish side…

So total mileage for this trip 16830 km and made a nice looking circle:

For this day we got an idea: Lets make this day a short one and reward us with a short driving day and a spa in St. Petersburg!

And this was what we did!


So only 425 km for this day, 6½ hours driving. Woke up early and engines were running before 07:00 and little past 13:00 we were at the hotel in St. Petersburg.

From Nizhny Novgorod we drove a bit pass Moscow, managed to go around Moscow and not stuck on the traffic.


Weather was good, quite a lot of smoke everywhere.

Managed to find small motel just by the road and our day was there!

We got wake up visit at 07:00 as agreed on the night before, had quick breakfast and packing and off we go again.

After driving some 2 hours we had first stop and during this stop we noticed that Kari had a nail through his rear tyre so our intended short stop to drink became a bit longer due to repairing of this.
