One month after the Crimean population voted to join Russia and about 2 months after Russian troops occupied Crimea I booked flight and  train tickets to spend 9 days in Crimea.

2012 – Russia

My journey to Sweden via Eastern Europe (English)
Nach Schweden über Osteuropa und Russland (Deutsch)


Said in one sentence, I circled the Baltic Sea overland. Again by train I went from Berlin via Warsaw to Kyiv and Chernobyl. Then just north overland via Belarus, the Baltic through Russia to Nordkap in Norway. From there I hitch-hiked back to Berlin.

A short journey to Lofoten in winter


I had seen many beautiful pictures of the Lofoten Islands so I decided to go there at the end of February to see some Northern Lights.
