Baltics in spring

baltics2009

I wanted to visit friends in Finland. So I took a train to Warsaw and cycled though east Poland and the Baltic States to Helsinki.

I loved the soft energy of the people, the not so modern society and towns as well as the great places where I had been camping in the wild. If not on small tracks, cycling might be monotonous. Make sure your tires are wide, since the lovely dirt tracks may be bumpy or sandy.

    Typical coastline in the Baltic states: the land just stops and creates a beach.

  1. Beste Erik,

    Allereerst wat een prachtige foto’s.

    Bedankt voor de GPStrack van Split naar Albanie.
    Wij vliegen eind augustus naar Split en willen van daaruitin 2 weken fietsen richting Montenegro en terug.

    Terug zal dan wel de kustweg worden, hopelijk is deze dan niet te druk.

    Veel fietsplezier!

    • Hoi Petra,

      Hoe was het? Ben erg benieuwd naar welke route je nou gefietst hebt, en hoe het met de drukte was. Ik schat dat vanaf begin september het enigszins rustig zou zijn??

      Groetjes!
