Curonian Spit (Klaipėda — Nida)

This post is part of adventure «Baltic Sea 2017»: After breakfast I took the ferry across the Curonian lagoon to Smiltynė. The crossing takes only 10 min. I left the ferry and took the unique road.

Lepšiai — Pagėgiai

This post is part of adventure «Baltic Sea 2017»: I will never get routine with this and it will always stay difficult to leave such great hosts like Evaldas’ family. Thank you all for your kindness, our discussions and a special thanks to Evaldas’ mum who pampered me like her own child and prepared such a great meal before I leaved! Evaldas’ sister was so kind and brought me and my bike to Lukšiai by car to avoid the gravel road…

Puck (Putzig) — Gdańsk (Danzig)

This post is part of adventure «Baltic Sea 2017»: It was only a short trip from Puck to Gdańsk, but in Gdynia it was not so easy as a cyclist to cross the harbour area. Between Gdynia and Gdańsk a few short showers forced me to cycle more carefully and I stopped at a car wash to get the road dirt from bike and panniers before reaching the guesthouse…
