Bikepacking Baltics – Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia

MahinaContent, MahinaJourney2020

The first Kaunas impressions I collect from the bus window. The driver in Marijampole didn’t want to believe me that I had covered the very largest part of my route with the fully packed bicycle. But we were both allowed to get into the bus anyway.

Actually, I would have liked to stop in Vilnius, but it is not on the direct route to Tallinn. The Covid situation has meanwhile become so tense again that everyone assumes that the Baltic states will stick together and not close the borders among neighbours. But you can never be sure in this summer of 2020.

First 100km: Eastside Gallery > Dresden

Could there be a better starting point for #MahinaJourney than the Eastside Gallery in Berlin? The fall and demolition of the Berlin Wall might be the most important action of re-unification and freedom in our lifetime.
