Today I went cross-country skiing. Skiing on the frozen lake Pielinen was probably the best thing I've done the whole spring. I skied 20 km and, get this, it took me only about two and a half hours with a little break at the half way point in Pyhäsaari (it's the big island in the middle of the map). Even though there is not much to do in Joensuu and it is a pretty boring place to live in the feeling you get after you've skied ten kilometres and sit in the sun shine of spring in complete silence in the shore of Pyhäsaari is amazing. You start to think that maybe world isn't such a bad place. I highly recommend this activity to everybody.
