Even after a long day yesterday, I slept only some 5 hours and woke up before 06:00. Best Western Malmö Arena Hotel was a good one as it had water boiler in the room with two coffee portions as well so got my first dose of coffee without need to bring my own cooker.

Room in this hotel was pretty nice, view from this first floor room I got could have been a bit better, but was not going spend my time there looking outside so not bothering me.

After spending few days in the conference, it was soon about time to go back to Finland again.

Before that lot of things happened, including giving some more oil for the bike. It seems to drop few drops from somewhere…

Was at breakfast by 07:00, couple of others there as well, but still quiet after all.

Room at Ibis as it has been, a bit weird concept but clean and works very well when travelling alone.

Woke up early again in Hotel Aristo, room was really great spacious one that they upgraded me into. Of course I spread all of my stuff everywhere so that I can easily find them.

My room at Hotel Kaiserrast was not best possible, small one person room and it was a bit smelly as well, not cleaned well enough. But managed to get a good night sleep so everything ok in that sense.

 Stockerau

Woke up early again and went to breakfast right after 07:00. Again, nobody else was there yet.

Breakfast at Hotel Fryderyk was just as good as they advertised, no complaints!

Had my alarm set to wake me up at 06:30, but as I had turned on the one I have normally on it did not fire due to the fact that it was for workdays only… so almost overslept and was at breafast at 7:15…

Had an excellent breakfast again, will take me through the day just fine.

Did not sleep much either on this day so woke up fully early and was among the first ones to get breakfast at 07:00. Good start for the day, breakfast was just great.

For some reason could not really sleep well, probably because room was to hot so decided to get up and started day early with a coffee.

By 7:30 I was already packing the bike again and started riding again.

Finally day came that I got my GSA out from garage again! Long waited summer (?) is here again!

By 09:00 I had everything packed and once I got out Tommi came as well to take picture from me leaving.

Was going to take it easy riding today, headed first to Vaalimaa border crossing and got actually quite fast through (less than an hour).

Next stop was Vyborg to get some Russian rubles and also fuel the bike.

I have been struggling for a quite some time with me to get a new car and came across this one. Gave a first visit to see this back in March, but eventually now I managed to get this for a test drive to see what this is all about.

Drove it some 300km on all sorts of roads and yes, it is a nice car. The one that I took for a ride had pretty much all of the gadgets that I would like to see on mine as well, including

Air Body Control Garmin Map Pilot 9G-Tronic Distronic Plus with Steering assist Head-up display Keyless-Go 360 Camera Traffic Sign Assist etc. etc. IMG_3200
