Horst – most cosiest place in Linz

Horst in Linz – aka the cosiest place in the city I’ve walked past it a couple of times.

Cave trekking through Kreidelucke in Upper Austria

by

Cave trekking through Kreidelucke in Pyhrn-Priel, Upper Austria It was already pitch dark after a few steps. No movement could be made out any more and all my other senses sharpened.

Cost report – how much are 7 Days in Riga and Tallinn? Dere!! I’ve visited Estonia and Latvia only recently and stayed mostly in the capital cities Riga and Tallinn.
