There was an article in the Keskisuomalainen newspaper today about Alain Bezard, a French fellow who is in the process of walking across Finland from south to north. He is trusting in the hospitality of Finns to get him through this adventure. So far he has yet to sleep outside, although I gather from his blog that he has had buy his own food at least once.
Alain in downtown Jyväskylä yesterday
Keep an eye out for this guy and help him along his way. As someone who once rode a bicycle from Helsinki to Oulu I can say that there is nothing quite like the kindness of strangers.
Alain's blog can be found here. You can find his contact information here if you would like to help him out along his way to Nordkapp in Norway.
