Nordkapp

The furthest north I rode the KLR.

And here is the proof🙂

The panorama at North Cape.

And on the way back to Honningsvag.

This morning I reached Europe’s most northern point. Then I read the following at the museum there:

“Francesco Negri (1624 – 1698) was considered to be the first tourist to visit North Cape. Negri, priest and scientist from Ravenna in Italy, travelled alone from Italy to North Cape mostly on foot or by what little public transport there was along the way. Finally, on reaching his destination, he exclaims: ‘Here I am at North Cape, the northernmost tip of Finnmark, and I might just as well say the edge of the world as there is no place further north that is inhabited by people. My quest for knowledge has now been satisfied and I wish to return to Denmark, and God willing, to my country of birth.”

Tomorrow I begin my southward ride of still a few thousand kilometers. Also I have to return to my country of birth.

PS  Keep 1 September open. We have a date.

  1. Verlede jaar het ek by Finisterre gestaan, die mees westerlike punt van Europa. Dis so lekker om hierdie fotos te sien en saam te reis in die gees…
