  4. One of my favorite posts, and a great story. Thanks also for inspiring me about countries I’ve never thought much of for travel. I love eastern Europe, but I’ve never thought about checking out Estonia or Latvia! Congrats on your fantastic journey.

  5. We are doing almost the same route as you – we started in Portugal and have come up and around the Baltic from there. Estonia and Lithuania were great. I think Poland will prove to be excellent as well. We have stood and taken photos in exactly the same 100 places or more. In all our time here we met just 4 other cyclists, so it is nice o know there are more. – Warren

    • Hi Esther and Warren,

      Thanks for getting in touch; yeah I didn’t ride into too many tourers up north either. It’s such a beautiful ride through Europe, especially as use started in Portugal. I rode there last summer in the north and really enjoyed it – particlularly with the glasses of port to celebrate the end of my tour along the Douro. Yeah I think Lithuania has been one of my favourite places. The roads north of Warsaw were trecherous. If you check my route make sure you avoid the main northern road I took…

      Happy ridin’
