Baltic Cycling Tour #6: from Riga to Sigulda

Baltic Cycling Tour #6: from Riga to Sigulda

In Riga we participate to the Couchsurfing event “Riga Good Time” and ended up sleeping at a  sauna party. Latvia confirms itself as a very creative place for accommodations, with an ex-prison, an ex-hospital and now a sauna! We also spent one afternoon in Jurmala, some 30km away from Riga and with beautiful and crowded […]

Baltic Cycling Tour #5: from Kuldiga to Sabile

When we left Kuldiga in the mid-morning, our plan was to reach Riga in the evening. Our plan was to cycle till Kandava and then hop on a train, but we struggled to reach Sabile due to the uphills in that hilly part of Latvia. Sabile is home of the northest (more north in latitude) […]

Baltic Cycling Tour #4: from Liepaja to Kuldiga

Cloudio could not summarize better this stage of our tour, so I’ll reuse his words (and hope that Google won’t penalize me for doing so): The 5th stage of the BCT 2013 start incredibly fast: we reached Aizpute, 50km from our starting point in Liepaja, in only 1hr! Then we jumped off the bus, had […]

Baltic Cycling Tour: Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia

Baltic Cycling Tour: Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia

My trip around the Baltic country started the 6th July in Klaipeda, Lithuania, ended 14 days later in Tallinn, Estonia. Together with my spiritual guide Cloudio “guruju” we had total more than 500 km in 10 cycling days across 3 different countries. Not bad, considering that we had no training and that bike was chosen as […]

All that I can leave behind

All that I can leave behind

The 6th of July 2013, leaving Klaipeda (Lithuania) with my friend Cloudio, the Baltic Cycling Tour officially started. Cyclotourism, if we can call it like that, is something I never tried before so I was excited… also for the minimal packing list involved. In Klaipeda we had to carefully select which items carry with us […]

Another taxi ride, to Swat Valley

Greetings from Nantes – beautiful city in Brittany, crossed by the Loira river, French country. I missed a lot travelling, being grounded in Amsterdam for more than 3 weeks recovering from the knee “let me check” surgery I had. Full of joy and excitement, I stepped into another taxi to reach the beloved Schiphol airport, […]

How about Tel Aviv, Israel

How about Tel Aviv, Israel

NOTE: The following post is written in Comic Sans font, because I think I’m funny. I think everyone has some places that trigger curiosity, excitement, interest. Places we want to visit, we fantasize about, without really a reason behind it. One of this places for me was Lisbon, Portugal. After my brother showed me the […]
