24 Hours in Vienna

Directly from the airport station to WHBF Wien Hauptbahnhof / Central. It takes about 20 minutes and feels like a first class carriage. Actual first class has aContinue reading “24 Hours in Vienna”

24 Hours in Riga

Bus from Estonia to Riga, Latvia I took the LuxExpress bus from Viljandi, Estonia to Riga, Latvia via Pärnu. The bus was spacious, modern and calmly driven. Its a short trip to Pärnu from Viljandi, around an hour. Thanks to the large windows you can enjoy the flat but otherwise colourful autumn landscape. Green spruce,Continue reading “24 Hours in Riga”

UberEats Lockdown Day 1/3

It’s a slow Friday morning. I’m avoiding logging in to my “regular job” after a busy week. Overcast clouds, a little rain and a perfect coffee in hand set the morning’s mood. “Mate, are you watching the news? Bro. We’re locking down for 3 days. COVID”.
