Tangkuban Perahu Volcano

After being sent to an immensely overfilled bus, without air-conditioning, with teenagers throwing up behind your back, that took over 6 hours to reach its destination (instead of the official 2hrs), arrive at a city which offered nothing more than pouring rain for two days and visiting a spa, which dissapointed you in every imaginable way possible, by forcing you to pay 30,000 rupiah for taking a nap in their god damn precious field, it seemed the city of Bandung had not much to offer.

However, after witnessing the simply astonishing and as Jeremy Clarkson would say, “superb” Tangkuban Perahu Volcano, the city of Bandung has been forgiven. Photographs below will undoubtedly justify this reasoning.

My first Triathlon

It was the 21st of June, 2012 when I finally finished my first unofficial Triathlon. The journey began at Tikkurila swimming hall in Vantaa, continued towards Salo and ended at my summer cottage in Kemiö.

Total Distance: Swim (1km) Bike (130km) and Run (33km)
Total Time: 13h and 5min

A truly remarkable journey continued by a very traditional mid-summer festival celebration with my closest of friends. Unbelievably, it is impossible to decide which of these events was more physically and mentally demanding, the triathlon or the 4 day drinkathon.
