Friday in to Rovianemi where we had a large Finnish lunch and omelette and panacotta. We crossed to Sweden at Tornio and then all along the coast road where for miles we could not find a camp site and had to go to a hotel in Lulea. Sat[urday] in down coast to Umea and then inland to Hoting where B. is ....[?] Lisbeth

It must have been an amazing road trip. I wonder where they went next... Did they make it to Oslo?
