It has been a relaxing and peaceful eight days exploring the Northern European cities – Stockholm, Tallinn and Helsinki. I was lucky to be around during the mid-summer festival, where everyone is out enjoying the many festivals around town. It is a big celebration for them after a long freezing winter.
The ranking of walkability of the three cities is – Tallinn, Stockholm, Helsinki. All three cities are walkable and pedestrian -friendly. Many areas, like Old Town quarters, are closed to vehicles. There is no need to be extra cautious while crossing the streets as drivers are not aggressive and respect pedestrian rights-of-way.
What I love most about these countries is that everyone is so friendly and polite. Being surrounded by such wonderful people makes my trip a memorable one.
I have always loved traveling but did not venture out on my own until I was in my mid-20s. After my first solo adventure to Vietnam, I have fallen in love with the freedom and exhilaration of traveling alone.
I would like to use this blog to document my travels and record memorable stories I do not want to forget. It will be a platform to share useful information and hear about others’ experiences and thoughts, not necessarily about travels but also on life in general.
Live a simple and meaningful life, enjoy learning along the way, travel the world and explore the unknown!
