About Me

We are now in Oz after two amazing years of traveling Europe in our home built plane. We met many fantastic people who we are proud to call friends and have gained a much better understanding of the similarities and differences between the cultures of the different European states as well as the history and geography that have lead to these differences. We enjoy meeting people with similar interests to ourselves and learning more about other cultures. Please let us know if you're going to be in Queensland and would like to catch up for a meal and a chat.

Off to Finland, oh make that Estonia

Well all good things must come to an end, and with approaching fronts we decided it was time to get on our way to Helsinki.
And in the Finnish archipelago everything looks much nicer!
Helsinki is a most attractive city from the air...
Here the port with some of the archipelago in the background
All those nicely renovated and maintained classical buildings.
In Helsinki we had to accept that all good things come to an end sooner rather than later, after 3h on the ground we admitted our defeat after finding only one hotel room available in the whole city (for €215 a night), took our bikes apart and headed off to nearby Talinn, Estonia, after checking that accomodation was no problem there (and more like €40 a night).
