Playing Twister in Riga

Saying my goodbyes to Tallinn as I bought my bus ticket to Latvia I was sure over the next 2 years of living in this part of the world I would be back in Estonia for some fun. Boarding the bus I took my seat and was surprised to see a coffee machine sitting across from me. Obviously this bus ride wasn’t going to be all bad after all. Setting […]


Closing the Door on Estonia

When you arrive back at your hostel as people are thinking about getting up its a fair sign you don’t wake till the afternoon, and that’s just what happened.

There are certain points in my travels where within the first 24 hours of being in a new place I either book extra days because I love it or begin to plan the few things I wanted to see before setting off for another new destination.

Landing in Estonia

Waking up in Helsinki would take some getting used to in my book. The sun going down at midnight was crazy enough but when I was woken up to the sun rising again at 4am, I’d never sleep. Luckily I’m a resilient bugger and nodded off back to sleep until my couch surfing hosts arose a few hours later. With this my first ever couch surfing experience I learnt that […]
