Hiking Adventure from Tallinn to Lisbon!
Jurassic Coast

Jurassic Coast

  When we had mentioned to anybody that we were planning on hiking along the Jurassic Coast, the reaction was always the same: “Oh, it’s a gorgeous place! But veeeery difficult to hike.” The latter usually was underlined by an upward and downward motion of the hand, drawing a steep curve in the air. We were… Continue Reading

The White Cliffs of Dover

The White Cliffs of Dover

Before we tell about our first week in the UK, let us explain how we got the crazy idea to cross the channel in order to hike in a country known for bad weather, bland food, and high prices. In case anybody forgot, our quest was to hike along the E9 – the European long distance… Continue Reading

Bruges and the Belgian Coast

Bruges and the Belgian Coast

Our passage through Belgium could have been like this: After the security check, we crossed the border, walked to Bruges, did some sightseeing, hiked along the coast, one of the shortest in our trip, and arrived at the French border. The end. It was far more exciting than that, as you can imagine. The seven… Continue Reading

Dunes, Windmills, and the Delta

Dunes, Windmills, and the Delta

The last ten days in the Netherlands were kind of a summary of what we had seen and experienced until then: Beautiful dune landscapes, long beaches, impressive dams and barriers, and the cutest little towns along the way. We had our energies restored during the break in Amsterdam and hiked an average of 25 kilometers… Continue Reading

Foggy days

Foggy days

When we look back on a certain part of our hike, there is usually something that marked those days. The first days in the Netherlands were marked by endless dikes, thousands of sheep grazing happily on green meadows, and fog. Light fog, heavy fog, fog in the morning, fog the entire day. We luckily had… Continue Reading

Bye-bye Baltic Sea

Bye-bye Baltic Sea

The boat trip with Swanje and Loreley on our rest weekend included a very short stop in Wismar, a charming hanseatic town, boasting some impressive examples of Brick Gothic architecture. In the following hiking days, we visited Wismar two more times; once for lodging and the second time hiking through. A few days later, we… Continue Reading

High Season

High Season

The holiday month of August was in full swing, Polish holidaymakers were heading to the beaches to enjoy the hot summer and we were on our way to the Baltic coast. It became much more difficult to find accommodation and close to the coastal towns, it was impossible to walk at the beach, as it… Continue Reading
