During this week weather has get colder in Finland. Before snow is coming I found couple place to visit. As I decided to give a winter brake for my bike it meant exploring places by feet. City called Sulkava has many places worth to visit. I took two of those for the same day. Firstly I enjoyed marked routes at Vilkaharju. On the route you will find some infrastructure from 2nd World War.
Next I went to see this rock called Pismalahden Linnavuori. It is also historical place. There´s been a fortre approximately thousand years ago. Remaining from that time there are pieces of a stone wall to see. At the top of the hill you´ll find a nice view to lake Saimaa.

It has come time to settle down for a bit. I started new practical training straight after arrived from Germany. First days were really exhausting. I was tired in every meaning of it. I didn´t had even energy to go for a food store. My mom came for a visit and saved me from starvation .
There´s been a little back problem after last footbal game (3 weeks ago). Today I was finally ready for a bike ride. The nature around my current living area is so great ! I rode some new roads for me and saw variety of nature spots. Now I´m feeling more energetic. I think I´m ready to face the tasks that are ahead before the end of this year.

Mtbo Junior and Youth European Championships + mtbo World Cup. Those were the races held by Germany. Team Finland took part for there with almost 30 riders. So many youngsters need us to take care of all sort of things. Our team got three team officials. Also many parents had found their way to Germany to cheer up for the team.
It was very exotic weather. I had just and just enough clothes for me and some spare clothes for atheletes. Especially during realay the weather was hard for riders (few degrees, rain and wind). Whatsoever, I spent great time with my friends over there. Missing it already !

We won yesterday the sesaon last game 2-0! Exciting game from the begining. My team game was bit confused from the start. It took time for us to get it better. 2-0 results tells the rest. We managed to keep the ball out of own goal, so it it was my first "zero goals behind me -game" . But the most important thing was that we made two goals and got full points to home! After this final round my team got 4th place in women´s 2nd division. That´s a really good achievement from a small town team!
And what about the next year? Can´t say anything for that yet. Team will keep going on, but will I be with it. It depends from lots of open questions in my life. Where will I live during next year? That´s one of the biggest question that prevents me to promise anything. But I enjoyed to took part for this team during this season. I´d like to improve my skills as much as I can and be part of football in future too. I also love to have this sort of training where you get easy hits that makes your bones and joints stronger .

I´m sort of a person who drives herself towards new challenges. Not like I have to always try something new or extreme to stay on with life. But when life goes on you´ve just got to face things you never faced before. Has it something to do with this picture?
Last Saturday we had a game. It was on our home stadium at Kauhava. Yes, I´ve been playing football as long as I learned to walk. There´s also been years when I haven´t belonged to any football team (lack of team or lack of personal health). Now I made my comeback. But this was totally new thing for me: to be a goalkeeper in a real match! Those 90 minutes were one of the longest minutes in my life so far. I was nerves as I didn´t had any routine how to managed my role as a goalkeeper.
At the end my team was really strong and we won 5-1. Yes, I let one goal in. So I could do better performance (means zero goals behind me). On next weekend there´s a chance for that as we´re having this season last game.

After I gained my energy levels bit higher it was time to head towards north. It meant some hiking and biking with friends in Western part of Finnish Lapland. Of course after disease it takes time before you should do any physical activities. Our trip to north is this time more like "holiday friendly" than any training camp. In this situation just perfect for me . Sure we´ve climbed up some hills and I guess we´re still going to do some activities somewhere up here .

I found this photo from my sisters home. It has been taken in Istanbul. That was great trip some five years ago ! Memories...
And then back to current moment. I already started my next trip after Lapland. This time I was supposed to spend nights in three different places Maalahti-Vesilahti-Vihti. Unfortunately I had to stop this trip already at the first point. My body didn´t want to go with me anymore. All I can do is rest, eat pills and hope that I will get my body back to keep going with me very soon. Cause I´m heading up to north again in few days.

I went to North to have some holiday from everything. Not meaning that my life is somehow too exhausting. Well yes, sometimes it feels like that . You just got to take time for yourself when you got a chance! So, I also went there to check out some possible future plans what comes to work. I´ll do my best and we´ll see what it brings to me. I´ve got many things ahead in this Autumn. Can´t yet even think how´s and where´s my life after New Year !

After organizing "things" with a road trip to Kuopio-Savonlinna-Tampere, plus couple trips to Seinäjoki, I had also few days time to rest and recover at home. Not too long `cause yesterday we headed to Oulu for a night. Today we had a football game at Tornio. Very exciting afternoon ! The game ended in a draw 1-1! Well deserved point for our team Kanu naiset: https://www.kauhavankanuunat.fi/joukkue4917 . I was not playing so I had energy to drive northern. I´ll tell you later that where did I ended up at this time ...
