Hungry in Hungary
We entered Hungary through a small mountain range in the north near Sátoraljaújhely (yeah, good luck saying that) on a breezy, rainy Sunday and upon arrival to the camp site we were intrigued by the word ‘thermal’. Needless to say we spent a good part of that afternoon just brewing in 36°C water and hated…
To be fair, we were in Slovakia less time than an “average” person spends at work in a week. In total we were there for about 70 hours but we still have a lot to tell you about this little place. Let’s begin; I think that the first thing that everyone notices about Slovakia is…
Poland Lovland – part 2
We would have never imagined to be so well welcomed and treated in Poland ! People have been so nice to us and we want to share with you those amazing stories ! Marina works in a bank in Krypno Wielkie. We were in this small little village in Eastern Poland and we couldn’t find…
What do you know about Poland ? To tell you the truth we didn’t know anything. Nothing. Nill. We know a few people who have been to the big cities of the west and of course Cracow but that’s it. Furthermore, We had lots of … what’s the word … prejudices … not, but maybe…
Lithuania, smoothly leaving the Baltics
The Baltics … since we travelled from north to south our last stop was, of course, Lithuania; the most populated and biggest of the three but also a box full of surprises … let’s see … So, as it was to be expected, Latvia waved goodbye with a bumpy and sandy road which drastically changed…
Latvia is nice… when you are not cycling !
So far in our cycling trip, Latvia has been the most challenging country for us. You either cycle on main roads which are very busy, or you decide to use alternative roads but in exchange you get pebbles and sandy roads, sometimes used by truck drivers talking on the phone who do not slow down.…
Estonia Bestonia !
Estonia! We say this every time but … we loved it! We arrived with high expectations and we were not deceived; it lived up to what people had been telling us and, once again, we were sad to leave. What can we say? If we had to rate our experience there it would be very…

Russia, where life begins at the end of your comfort zone
One kilometer to go until the border between Finland and Russia. You can already tell that the environment is different and not as familiar as it uses to be to your Europeans eyes. You change money in an exchange machine located in a “Fish and Caviar” place along a stony road, you see Russian cars…
Finland; first step of the adventure!
It´s difficult to remain unmoved when visiting Finland. Admittedly, Helsinki is probably not the most breathtaking European capital but in its own personal way it totally reflects Suomi culture as a whole: shy in an intriguing way, quiet and with lots more that initially meets the eye. We stayed with Laura, a fellow cyclist and…
