Hiking Adventure from Tallinn to Lisbon!
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

From the Elbe to the Weser

From the Elbe to the Weser

Leaving Hamburg behind, we were soon in the North German countryside, hiking in a huge half circle through fields and vast forests, until we reached the Elbe again. Unfortunately, our luck with the weather did not continue (it was fall, after all), and we had to make use of our rain capes quite often. The… Continue Reading

Hamburg!

Hamburg!

It took us a few days to walk from Lübeck to Hamburg, and despite the pleasant surroundings and almost non-stop sunshine, we could hardly wait to finally arrive in one of our favorite cities. Hamburg had been on our mind for quite a while, as we could stay with friends there and also because it… Continue Reading

We almost missed it, because a) we were practically on Lithuanian territory since Pape and b) the borderstone at the beach marking the real border between both countries was well hidden. As we learned from our Lithuanian hosts the evening before, the… Continue Reading

Cape Kolka Ho!

Cape Kolka Ho!

After the urban life of Rīga, we slowly returned to the calm and serenity of the seaside with its endless beaches lined by green pine forests. During eight days, we were following the coastline between lively Jūrmala and quiet Cape Kolka, where the waters of the Gulf of Rīga meet those of the Baltic Sea.… Continue Reading

Vidzeme Coast

Vidzeme Coast

With all of the Latvian coast ahead of us, what did we do? Choose the Via Baltica for our hike. Well, it wasn’t too bad in the end, as a bycicle path was going along it, leading through quiet villages. We were looking around us, spotting the differences to Estonia. More stone than wooden houses,… Continue Reading

Last days in Estonia

Last days in Estonia

With relaxed muscles and recovered energy, we started our next day of hiking. And a great start it was: The sun was shining bright and we could follow the Pärnu river on a pleasant bicycle path for the first kilometers. After a huge bridge, we crossed the last neighborhoods of Pärnu. The houses became smaller… Continue Reading

After more than a week in the countryside, the thought of arriving in a bigger town had created big expectations: Nice cafés, good restaurants, supermarkets, some entertainment, some relaxation. We were in such a hurry to arrive there, we even took the train line. No,… Continue Reading
