The Baltics

One of my favorite trips to date is also one of the regions that was not even on my list! I can’t wait to get back to the Baltics!

The Baltics

  • How to Plan Long-term Travel in Europe - I got a question from a fellow female traveler recently about how to manage traveling in Europe for four months. Or should she spend two months in Europe and two months in Southeast Asia? Well, those are excellent questions, and I have some strong opinions about that!
  • What Women Pack for Winter in Europe - It's the dream! Winter in Europe is full of snowy mountain villages, Christmas markets, world-class ski and winter sports resorts, and in some countries... reindeer!
  • What to Eat in the Baltics - Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Today we're remembering the delightful Baltic cuisine from our recent trip to Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. What do they eat there? Find out below!
  • Why You Should Take the Luxury Bus in the Baltics - On our recent trip to the Baltic States, Steve and I decided that taking the Lux Express buses between Vilnius and Riga, then Riga to Tallinn, would be the most efficient for our travels. Buses are not that popular in the United States, but in Europe bus travel abounds!
  • So, What are the Baltics? - Each year, Steve and I take 10-14 days in August to explore a new and faraway land neither of us has visited before. This year, it's the Baltic States! Several people I've spoken with have been confused about the Baltics versus the Balkins, so I thought I'd shed some light on this former portion of the Soviet Union that sees so few American visitors!
