Tour Journal: Cycling Finland's Aland Islands

I've put up a CycleBlaze journal on a 5 day bike tour of Finland's Aland Islands that my wife and I did last week. Look here.
The tour was fully supported, Freewheeling Adventures was the touring company.The Alands are small enough and the free ferries are frequent enough that you could easily do a self-supported tour with longer mileage days there.

Excellent photos from a part of the world I had never seen many pictures of, even though it's where my ancestors came from. Hope to visit there some day.

Freewheeling put up a advertising video on the Aland Islands tour site, filmed during our tour - look here. It is an advertising video but pretty low key.

I'm the bearded wide-bodied guy with the shiny bike helmet mounting site, my wife is the hot redhead in the video.

Nice looking place! May have to put some consideration into them for a trip sometime.
