In November, I planned a trip to explore an underrated part of Europe: the Baltics. I did a loop covering Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden and Copenhagen in three weeks without a single flight! I went from capital to capitol by bus, train and ferry.

There is plenty of great street food, the city is very walkable and public transport is pretty affordable. The best way to explore it though, is by bike. It’s the most bicycle friendly city in the world after all!

While you’re there, here are a few great things to do: … More Things to Do in Helsinki
