Due to the instant switch to business-as-usual my amazing trip begins to fade already. Time is flying faster and faster anyway I feel.
This post is a vain attempt fighting this natural process. Isn’t all this social media stuff nothing but a modern kind of a diary? Unless you call yourself an “influencer” I guess…:-p
However, I won’t spend a lot of words, since pictures always do a better job, ain’t!?
Thus, I created a new gallery at portfolio with some selected jewels of this bike trip along the neat, flat baltic coast.
In addition to the gallery you’ll find some shots (including caption) in this blogpost, which are supposed to give you an idea of my journey.
In case you are interested in a route map incl. comments, take this.
And there’s more coming up:
– a short clip of the video footage I did on the way
– an exhibition and online gallery on bus stops of the Estonian Island Saaremaa I’ll keep you posted here. You bet!
Enjoy, take care, keep exploring and thank you for stopping by! Yours, Christoph

Rigas famous market
On the market
Riga has a long green ribbon around its center.

A pigeon just entered the shop
I know these guys…
And I know this lady!
Rigas modern library
Help for cats
Sneaking out of Riga in the early morning
On my way out of town

Most of the time it was straaaaaight on riding
Went thru the woods
Many storks in Estonia!
I carry flowers. Always.
Many fires smoldered even 2 days after Johannisday
My first arrival at the sea and I thought it’s a flamingo
Didn’t find out what it was
Rain a few minutes before
Serious rain and hail
I never eat wurst at home
The nicest camp spot of the entire tour.
It wasn’t always this calm
Ok tonight no camping
Between Muhu and Saaremaa Island
Australia? Sure, at 13°C.
A loo on one of the many free campsites
One of many, many bus stop houses on Saaremaa. More to come, promised.
Waiting for the ferry to Hiiumaa
This was such a great reunion with Jan and Paul after more than 1 year. Plus, we couldn’t have picked a better location for this event. Wine, Sauna, coffee, dinner, barrels to sleep in. No more wishes.
Holsten – like baaaack then in Puerto Natales. Proof? Look right.
4 yrs ago in Puerto Natales at the end of the world.
Unfortunately we had to go opposite directions and said our farewells. Next time, next time.
This image is dedicated to my friend Jens Waldenmaier and is named “a quarter past 10am”
One of the first weird sceneries in beautiful Tallinn
For more action, I went off road once in a while
Those fuckers were not funny
Even rain wouldn’t stop them. Me neither.
Many really old cemetrys
A cute little waterfall
My diesel (as a fresh non-smoker)
Arrived in Tallinn

Bring it on!
Telliskivi in Tallinn
Wooden houses all over
Before leaving to Helsinki
A proper thunderstorm
Ferry to Helsinki
Bye Tallinn, you rock!
Open gutters are typical for Tallinn. Same in Helsinki. There were deep cuts in the pavement in order to let the water drain onto the street.
Quite a hard one to read
Sailing into HEL
A great welcome
Still those thick clouds
Having lunch in another market hall
They love ice cream
Typically for HEL
Love & Relax
Great wooden house neighborhood
I made it from Riga to Helsinki. Another mission accomplished.
