    Saaremaa

    July 17 in Estonia

    Heute war es wieder Zeit, die Zelte abzubrechen und weiterzuziehen. Ursprünglich dachten wir, die Insel Saaremaa mitzunehmen auf unserer Reise, sei vielleicht zu viel Herumgefahre. Allerdings zog es uns wegen der anhaltend hohen Temperaturen zum Meer. Die Fahrt kam uns auch gar nicht so lang vor. Die Straßen waren gut zu fahren und die Reise wurde unterbrochen von einer Fährüberfahrt und einem Einkaufsstopp. Als wir ankamen an unserem heutigen Etappenziel ganz im Westen der Insel, waren wir überraschenderweise die ersten an diesem Tag. Wir hatten also freie Auswahl. Später kamen nur noch zwei Autos mit Zelt an.
    Der Platz ist sehr idyllisch gelegen, klein, aber fein, und, wie auf der Homepage angepriesen, fast ohne Mücken. Wenn da nur nicht diese fiesen Bremsen wären. Die hatten uns schon beim letzten Camp genervt ohne Ende. Hier scheint es nicht anders. Wir sind zwar zum Glück gut ausgestattet mit diversem Antiinsektenzeug. Aber einen 100%igen Schutz gibt es leider nicht.
    Nach dem Aufbau unseres Camps erkundeten wir den Strand. Der ist nur ca. 200 Meter entfernt. Leider sehr flach und voll mit angespültem stinkenden Seetang, der wiederum voll war mit fliegendem und kriechendem Getier. Wir fanden trotzdem eine Stelle, wo man für eine Erfrischung im knietiefen Wasser kurz rein konnte. Das Sunsetbier geriet aber zu einer "schnellen Nummer", entspannter war es da schon am Lagerfeuer mit Mückenspiralaroma.

    Into our third country, Estonia

    August 27, 2017 in Estonia

    An earlier start as we have a big 340 k bus ride and half hour ferry trip to Muhu Island then drive across a causeway to Saameraa Island. Saameraa is the largest Estonian island.
    About an hour in we cross the Estonian border.

    Saameraa Island, Estonia

    August 28, 2017 in Estonia

    56 km ride today up the Sorve Peninsula. We got bussed from the Hotel to the Sorve lighthouse. This peninsula had considerable military significance, dominating the Irbe Strait and the Baltic Sea route to Riga.
    This was a very lovely ride- flat, sheltered and little traffic. We were able to stop and take photos. There were some lovely quaint houses and working farms. Coast with many white swans!! Just like we would see pelicans, I kept thinking they were 😊
    We went off the beaten track and cycled half the route on gravelly corrugated roads. Not everyone liked that! But we did like our lunch picnic spot.
    Along one of these tracks the front group saw a black snake cross the road. This is not a common occurrence, unlike Australia, so Minda, our guide, harassed it with a stick to get it back on the road for the rest of us to see. He gave up when it decided to strike back at him!! You could tell he's not used to dealing with poisonous snakes!!!! It was quite a big one for here.
    This had been the first time the Saameraa Island had been included in the itinerary, they used to do the smaller island of Hiiumaa.
    Our hotel had a spa centre so we had it booked from 5.30-7.30 pm. I'm not a fan of saunas but I spent an hour in and out of saunas and cold pools and muscles feel great!

    Minda and Edvard

    August 28, 2017 in Estonia

    Our 2 local blokes. 💕
    Mindaugas, or Minda, was our English speaking Lithuanian guide. He spoke and understood English pretty well, just had a little trouble occasionally translating a word.
    He did an excellent job at guiding us and putting up with the Aussie humour 😊
    Edvardas was our Lithuanian bus driver, who didn't speak much English. He understood some but couldn't speak it well. He spoke fluent Lithuanian and Russian and passable German. He still enjoyed the Aussies, you can still communicate pretty well with sign language and body gestures. Minda often translated between us.
    Edvardas did a great job too driving and backing the long bike trailer, keeping us on the right road and packing everyone's luggage in the minivan.
    Baltic Bike Travel 👍👍👍
