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.
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.
South from chaotic and fascinating Naples, the vertiginous and craggy Amalfi Coast with its three islands Capri, Ischia and Procida has been a magnet for visitors since Roman times.
The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy’s most memorable and beautiful destinations. Mountains plunge into the sea in a vertical scene of precipitous crags, cliff-clinging abodes and verdant woodland.
With its picturesque towns nestling on steep cliffs, the coast of Amalfi this 40 kilometer long strip along the Italian coast is simply stunning and very different from what I have seen so far on my trip through Europe.
After a wonderful time in Greece, Fiete and I took the ferry from Igoumenitsa to Bari in Italy. What an adventure! I was super nervous to get the motorhome on to the ferry, as I have heard nightmare stories about it from other campers. Ferries leaving hours late, unfriendly staff guiding vehicles in a rush, cramped spaces and excellent driving and parking skills needed.
For no reason! It was all easy as you can tell from my cheesy video on our new YouTube channel:
Denmark is just a short distance destination from Germany and yet so different. When I just got my RV in 2014 I wanted to go on a longer trip to get used to the vehicle but didn’t want to be too far from home in case something happens. So I picked Denmark with its islands also called as the “Danish South Seas” or Sydfynske Øhav in Danish.
It’s Summer, it’s hot and I am cruising through Bavaria in Germany. So why not go on a little side trip? Time for Bella Italia!
On the way to North Italy, I crossed the Alps on the route from Germany to Bozen and Rovereto. Oh dog! What an adventure and definitely worth a trip. The first sightseeing destination was Venice. O Sole Mio! You better be ready for Fiete and me.
