A book about a bicycle trip from Oslo to Helsinki. Nothing new there. The author goes on a spiritual journey parallel to the physical journey, where many threads intertwine: Hemingway, Camus, the death of a wasp, a cloud formation, wandering monks, a kidnapping on the Med, history, science, religion, and the meaning of life. Is there a connection between it all?
