Thoughtful in Tallinn

My last evening in Europe I watched a beautiful sunset over the Baltic sea. On the other side of that sea is my home, Sweden. For 10 months this is the closest I’ve been to home, when it comes to distance and perhaps also mentally and that because of two things: Tallinn is pretty much like Scandinavia, and I admit, for a second I actually considered going home.

I’m glad this is my last European stop because I’m pretty tired of these capital visits now. They are pretty much all the same, and in many ways good places to visit, but perhaps not when you visit 8 of them in a row and especially when you appreciate nature more than urban areas.

So, it’s time for some “wilder” and more unexplored countries now again and I’m really looking forward to some adventures. But as I mentioned, there was a second when I considered going home. I mean; 30 Euros and an hour in a plane and I would be home, in perfect timing for the summer as well. Family, friends, summer, sunshine, beaching, barbecues, mountains, hiking, wakeboard and the list of temptations goes on. Also I must admit that lately I’ve been a little tired of living in a bag, taking buses, flights, arriving late, checking out early to catch another bus, no privacy etc. These are also things that made me consider going home at least for a while. Comfort, privacy, maybe join some friends to Spain later this summer and some other to the USA. In my measures; a normal and good summer. But, I’m not a totally normal guy – I know that by now. I’m a little wilder and more seeking. I mean, how many 30 year old guys do you know that travels the world? How many do you know that are willing to pay 10 000 dollars to in order to freeze your ass off and feel like shit when trying to climb a mountain for 3 weeks? Not many, I suppose.

So a few more countries in Asia, and then my plan is to take a long summer holiday. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? Been traveling for almost a year visited the most amazing places on earth and I’m planning a summer holiday?! Yes, you read right. Traveling for a long time has been amazing and incredible in many ways and I’m so grateful for it – but on the other hand it’s also hard and tough some times. No matter how weird you might think this sounds; I actually think that I deserve a couple of weeks in the Caribbean and a roadtrip in the US – my favorite country in the world! But first; adventure calls – Georgia next up!
