Travel at 21: European Road Trip in Photos

In the handful of hours I clocked in Latvia, Estonia, Finland and Lithuania this past weekend, I don't think I gained any travel knowledge to impart. Instead, have a few photos I snapped as we drove, sailed and jogged our way through an exceptionally sunny Baltic Europe: 

Riga's Orthodox Cathedral
'Don't move! Stay right there!'

Giant furniture, Latvia 

Tallinn to Finland 

Helsinki's Hotel Katajanokka was a working prison up until 2002

'Excuse me?'

Prison food

Uspenski Cathedral, Helsinki

A flattering filter on River Neris, Lithuania

Photos taken on a Canon G7X, Canon 60D or my crappy iPhone 4S. 


Travel at 21 is a series on my blog where I talk about the places I visit in the hope it'll help and inspire people of my age/income. If you want to talk travel, drop me an email at


  1. I have started my own "travel at 20" project for 2015. Mine is slightly less ambitious (I am counting on five new countries). I realized how riddiculous it was to live in the middle of Europe and ignore the whealth of culture, history and languages surrounding me. I was scared to walk alone in the streets of Barcelona and spend 14 hours on a bus to Poland, but those few days have probably been the happiest of my year so far.

    I love how your photos reflect the way you look at the world and take in a new place. Beauty lies in the simplest things.

    1. That's so exciting! I would love to visit Barcelona :)

  2. These are beautiful pictures Candice :). I hope you had a good trip. Lithuania looks lovely, despite the scary field of crosses. I hope the rest of your time in that country made up for it!

  3. When you're 21, this trip is not for you, because your hormones want a completely different journey, they want the sea, beach, girls and partying. I know this from personal experience. I was recently here I was able to understand a simple truth, traveling for the purpose of cognition, are necessary to people to realize their potential in something and looking for inspiration. Listen to me and you'll understand it.
