After finishing my holiday tour in Finland, I will take a ferry to Estonia, to begin backpacking through the Baltic states.
Why Backpack the Baltic States?
Now you all know how I love a good flight deal!💰Well, after looking at how cheap flights were from Vilnius, Lithuania to Barcelona, Spain, I discovered that it would be the SAME price for me to fly back direct from Finland, as it was for me to travel through all three Baltic countries by bus, stay in hostels for 7 nights, and fly back from Lithuania instead! 😮
Pro tip: Ryanair operates out of Vilnius, Lithuania, which is why the flight was so cheap!
Anyway, since I finagled such a good deal, I’ll be able to spend New Year’s Eve in a truly off-beat travel destination. 😍
The Baltic States offer a very unique history and culture. Highlights will include local food, museums, tours, winter sports, and off-beat attractions. I’m not exactly sure what kind of shenanigans I’ll get up to, but I can’t wait to explore these three countries and send a full report back to all of you. Until then! Take care, and happy holidays everyone! 😀
