Here we are returning our bikes after a sometimes quite rugged week of cycling. The last big day was pretty monumental for me. I had not slept well and it was one of those days when just as you thought the end was nigh another sign saying 5 kms appeared or another hill rose up from nowhere. Even when we got to the town where we were to sleep the night, the hotel was , of course, on the far reaches of the other side of town. But we all made it in good health and spirits.
Here is what I totally indugled in when my cycle trip ended !! I adore ice cream and never keep it in the house. This was a Finnish version of an ice cream sundae, sprinkled with what I can only call cornflakes, adorning a selection of Movenpick ice cream. I shared two of these that day, meaning I ate a whole one in its entirety, cornflakes included !!! And I loved every crunchy mouthful and I felt no guilt or dietary angst - now that's a true reward !!
