Ferry Ride across the Baltic Sea
Fiete and I spent a couple of wonderful weeks in the Baltics, from Poland to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Time to see the other side of the sea and take the ferry to Stockholm. Hejhej Sverige!
Tallinn in Estonia was Fiete’s and my last destination on our tour along the Baltics.
I honestly thought this was just a city with a ferry port where people leave to Stockholm or Helsinki from. Oh, if I would only have done my homework upfront, I would have known that Tallinn is not only the capital of Estonia, but also very well known for its medieval town.
Lithuania as travel destination is still an insider tip but more and more tourists are recognizing the beauty of the southernmost Baltic country. For a reason.
Ha, I caught myself again. Yes, I am such a planner and detailed oriented when it comes to planning my travel routes. But shortly after my visit to Gdansk, I realized that it is impossible to drive along the coast further to Lithuania without crossing a small piece of Russia. Kaliningrad.
After discovering the forbidden island Wustrow, Fiete and I made our way further along the Baltic coast and made a quick stop in Rostock.
Our first stop around the Baltic Sea was Kühlungsborn in the Eastern part of Germany. This destination turned out to become a big adventure…
Maybe it’s a women’s thing but my RV needed to have a name.
Here we go, let me introduce you to Otto, my faithful and so far always reliable travel companion on the road.
I have always enjoyed the feeling of freedom through travelling with a RV. It’s your home on wheels. Yes, smaller but much more flexible. Whenever you have the urge to get out, it’s a great option to get into your second homebase and hit the road.
So in 2014 I decided to buy myself a RV. It was love on the first sight and still is. Otto.
Oh, I am so excited. In just a couple of days, I will be leaving up North to Scandinavia!
After discovering the South of Europe cruising through Greece and Italy for a couple of months, it is now time to explore long Northern nights and enjoy the festivities of typical Scandinavian Midsommar time.
