Trip report

Just returned from a 9 day solo trip, backpacking around the Baltic countries....Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

All 3 countries are stunning, with great people. I stayed at 3 Hostels on my travels

The Red Emperor in Tallinn

The Naughty Squirrel in Riga

Jimmy Jumps in Vilnius

All 3 places were great places to meet fellow travellers, and I made some great friends on the way. The weather was so cold -26c at one point, but the snow and frost made the places even more beautiful.

Ive written a blog with some details and lots of photos..

Hi Kia

The underground "hobbit" like place is called Kehrweider, just off the main square in Tallinn....more of a coffee shop than a bar but I think they do serve alcohol? It's a great place to chill out, or in my case warm up! Thanks for your comments, and I'm sure you will have a fantastic time!

I'm going to Tallinn and Saarmerraa in early July. If you are going in June, please post your thoughts or ideas on places to see in Tallinn. Would be nice to hear about other people's experiences.
