Cape Sounion

Greece, Sounion, Temple, Poseidon

Making the most of my extra day in Greece after the competition had ended, the trusty travel guide came out again to lend some suggestions of where to explore. I headed south and was greeted by some superb views over the Greek coastline. My destination was Cape Sounion to visit the ancient Greek temple of […]

Verdens Ende

Norway, Verdens Ende, Vippefyr

Making the most of the fine weather, I took a trip out to Verdens Ende to explore the large smooth stones on the coastline. I also learned something new whilst rock hopping, this is a vippefyr.

Turaida Castle

Latvia, Turaida Castle

The light wind forecast suggested that today was one for exploring. So, took a trip out to look over Turaida Castle with the guys from Brazil. From the top of tower was a great view of the surrounding Gauja National Park with the Gauja River winding through. Obscurus Orbis were a touring Latvian Medieval Music […]

Riga

Latvia, Riga, Buildings, Clock Tower

There was not so much breeze in the morning which meant plans to go out on the water early were put on hold. Instead, I decided to keep active and take a tour of Riga on the bike. I spent most of the time rattling my way over the winding cobbled streets of the old […]

Passed by the […]

Poland, Warsaw

On the way into the city, all the cars stopped in the road and many people […]

Borgholm Castle

Sweden, Öland, Borgholm Castle, Borgholms Slott

Whilst on Öland, I spent some time exloring Borgholm Castle and the surrounding grounds. Don’t think this is the main entrance… In the museum, there was a model of the castle as it once would have looked before being destroyed by fire in 1806.

Göteborg

Sweden, Göteborg, Paddan, Boat, Tree

After a great weekend of wave sailing at Haverdal, the forecast did not look so good for the next few days out on the water. Out came the trusty travel guide and I took a tour around Göteborg instead, having only sped through the city a few days previously. I thought the Paddan boats provided […]
