At first we were supposed to go "Tour de LatEst" route. Tour de LatEst covers about 1292 km, but because we had 12 days in our hands, we decided to take an other route which was partly following Tour de LatEst. So for past two weeks I've been cycling in Estonia and Latvia.

Our bicycle trip started from Tallinn from where the route continued clockwise covering the eastern parts of Estonia and northern parts of Latvia. We included Riga, Gulf of Riga coastline and Estonia's both islands to our trip. In the end we cycled total of 1163 km in our 12-day journey. Here's an illustrative map of our route:

The first couple days were rough. Not only because we were chased by a storm but because of lack of sleep: We arrived to the harbour (in Tallinn) at midnight and we had to cycle about 3 hours to get out of the city and find a proper camping place. It was about 03:00 when we got into our tent. After 4-5 hours of restless sleep we continued our cycling. The pressure to get caught with the storm and the strong wind didn't help much. Luckily we avoided the heavy rains with our cycling phase =^.^=

Here is a shot from "Road 39" and the storm which was chasing us:

We had quite tight schedule but I managed to take some shots. Mostly I just enjoyed the scenery, attractions, towns and cities we passed by.

To put short, I loved our 12-day bicycle trip even thought we encountered some problems from stormy weathers to speeding cars and scary big trucks in narrow roads, flat tires and teared outer tubes:

Despite the bicycle trip was fun, It's good to be home :D

My name is Amer and I live in Finland. What comes for my leisure time… I love bicycling. Last year I cycled about 6000 km with different trekking trips. 6k km cycling is kind of lame but this year I’m hopefully going to do better starting the season with 'Tour de Tampere' =^.^=

But let’s move forward to the part which is the most important for me: photographing. As you can figure out from my gallery, I’m not a professional and I don’t consider myself as a photographer – I’m just a guy who takes pictures.

I’m still seeking my own style and so far – as you can see – my pics are really random. I have lot’s to learn and keeping that in mind, I really have to thank you all: the visitors, commentators and specially all the watchers who are following my ‘open mind photo snaps’ evolving and helping me to evolve.
