Trip Report The "B" Trip, Part One, Baltics

Jump to last reply

No sooner had I got home from my last trip, than I started planning the next. After steaming in heat and humidity in Asia, I wanted somewhere cooler, but flights to Scandinavia in July or August were prohibitively expensive. I settled on the Baltics instead, flying the first day fares came down a little, to be followed by the Baltics. Since Fodors won't let me flag a TR with more than five countries I'll post this in phases. (For those who haven't "met" me here before, I'm a 60-something, solo, female traveler. With a small budget - definitely more time than money.)

I'm starting with four nights in New York - I'm typing this in RDU airport, waiting to board my Jet Blue fight to JFK. JB is currently my favorite domestic airline, partly because I get to check one bag free, and partly because they've always provided good service and comfortable seats. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Hurricane Irene will allow me to board my Continental flight from Newark via Copenhagen to Helsinki on Sunday.... (Continental is far from my favorite international airline, but the price was right.)

My plan for the Baltics is:
Helsinki - three nights
Tallinn, by ferry - four nights
Riga, by bus - four nights

After that I fly Air Baltic to Belgrade for a week in Serbia, followed by a tour of Bulgaria (another "B"). I haven't really planned the next month, as October sems to be out of high seasn for the Balkans. The rough outline is Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia, with a return visit to Croatia and Slovenia, mostly to get to Budapest for my flights back to the US.
