    Hey Ben & Monika,

    Really great to read about your trip.

    I work for Race for the Baltic – a coalition of NGO’s and businesses working towards a sustainable Baltic Sea. http://www.raceforthebaltic.com

    This year to raise public awareness we have planned a cycle ride all around the Baltic – the cyclists are now on their way up towards Stockholm and soon to embark on all the other 8 countries.

    Are you on twitter and Facebook? We are – it would be really cool if we could share our journey with you and you can give us some tips 🙂


    1. Hi Catriona,
      Ok, I’m gonna find you on FB, wish all the best to the team !

    I am inspired by your trip as I am also going to bike around the Baltic this summer as part of a group to raise awareness about issues in the Baltic Sea. I would like to get in contact with you and talk about any advice/tips you may have for the trip!


    1. Ben Says:

      Hi Christopher,
      sorry for the late answer but we had lot on stuff to do the last weeks. Feel free to ask things, and I’ll try to answer back, there are many questions I can answer but it’s difficult to speak “in general”.

    Hello! I hope Naantali was nice, and the other island too. It was great to have you all sleeping in our living room for a few days. Hope to hear from you soon. Oh, and there is an amazing town in Latvia called Kuldiga. There is a social center there where you could probably sleep. It’s called Zabadaks. http://www.nekac.lv/zabadaks.html I can’t wait to read your newest update when it comes!!


    1. Hey Adam

      Naantali was nice, we finally made the little tour of the archipelago, some details in our next post, really soon. We had a real good time in your flat, thanks to all of you and it was nice that we could share some time together. I finish your books, waiting for part 3 now !

      Thanks for the tip in Latvia, we’ll get an eye on it

      See you, cheers to Johanna and the others
