I’ve finally booked all the hotels and the major ferry crossings for my trip in late August and September to Helsinki where I’m working for a week on an Erasmus exchange. I’m travelling over there via Germany, Denmark and Sweden arriving on the ferry from Stockholm to Helsinki. I’m travelling back via Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania where I take a ferry through the Baltic Sea to Kiel in northern Germany (I miss out Polish roads) then retrace my first steps to Hook of Holland and a last ferry home to England. All the stopping places are loaded and this is what the trip looks like – a bit odd because the parts by sea are missing. Its about 2000 riding miles – a little less. No camping because all my camping equipment is still in store. I’ll save that for next year.
