"Mongolia is kind of close, right?" Story about an attempt to ski everywhere in the world where there's snow. And in some places where there isn't. On and off-piste skiing on all continents, skiing into craters of live volcanoes, caving, climbing, photography, and travel.

Biking Across the Sea
Summer is for biking, not for skiing! Well, not really, but this week I had no other alternative. I've been biking around Helsinki on one day, the next day I took a speed boat across the sea with my bike and toured around Tallinn for a few hours. Much recommended!
Tallinn is such a great city, both in terms of its old architecture, many restaurants, and overall friendly crowd.
In particular, I recommend touring around the old city of Tallinn. Its possible to do this on a bike, even with narrow street tires as I had on my bike. But a mountain bike and more suitable tires would probably be recommended.
I used the Lindaline boats, rountrip tickets for one person with a bike was 55 euros, taking only 90 minutes to reach the other side.
Signing off for now, I have to bike Naantali, another great (if small) city. And I promise to have another blog entry about skiing, soon. Until then, bye!
