The Baltic Countries

What a whirlwind trip we had and now we are back to the ferry for the overnight crossing. We arrived to sunny weather in Helsinki and returned to the camping for another night. We had booked passage on the ferry to Estonia for the next afternoon. We finally had a...
Tervitame Eestis

Tervitame Eestis

We zijn nog niet in Estland of mensen zwaaien en steken hun duim op als we langsrijden. Dat hebben we gemist in Litouwen en Letland. We hadden al gehoord dat de Esten ‘anders’ zijn en ervaren dat nu zelf ook. We rijden eerst naar Tartu. Het is de tweede stad van...
Estonia/Estonie

Estonia/Estonie

La traversée de la frontière de la Lettonie à l’Estonie peut se faire par Valga/Valka qui est en fait une ville coupée en deux. Une partie fait partie d’un pays et l’autre côté au pays d’en face. Nous ne nous en sommes pas aperçu jusqu’au moment où nous l’avons lu...

Estonia: Nice people and Russia is so near

Lithuania

Lithuania

Vilnius Lithuania   We were blessed with perfect weather of 28*C throughout our all too brief sojourne through Lithuania- but we have to keep moving unfortunately. Sunset over the lake at Ignalina Lithuania Lithuania strikes as somewhat wealthier and more...
Latvia

Latvia

Latvian flag Latvia is obviously a lot poorer and still has much further to move from it’s Communist era days than its neighbours Estonia and Lithuania, but for all that was fascinating! Marianne was sure she liked all the old hideous Socialist concrete apartment...
Estonia

Estonia

Estonia July 2013 A fairly short ferry trip (21/2 hours) brought us from Helsinki to Talinn Estonia and our first glimpse of the Baltic countries. Talinn “Old Town” on a fine afternoon was a delight to walk around for a few hours. Fairly quiet with just a few tourists...
St. Petersburg naar Hiiumaa

St. Petersburg naar Hiiumaa

Hoi allemaal! Inmiddels zitten we in Estland, op een eiland voor de kust: Hiiumaa. Nadat we uit St. Petersburg zijn vertrokken en naar Petershof zijn geweest, zijn we doorgereden naar de grens, om Europa weer in te rijden. Eindelijk dachten we een keertje een leuk...
