Road Trip to Riga

I had booked a flight from Riga at an ungodly hour, so arriving just in time for the flight wasn't going to work without paying a fortune... Except, I remembered that a couple of people had told me about a great Tallinn to Riga sightseeing day trip which arrives at 9pm in the city! Just... Continue Reading →

Back to Tallinn!

Twenty four hours in Moldova

Now I'm not saying that a single day is ideal to see anywhere, but while we were in Kyiv it became clear that we were about as close to the tiny little known country on the outskirts of Europe as we would ever be. So we bought an overnight bus ticket to Chisinau, the capital... Continue Reading →
