Trigger: Living Island Adventures in Estonia

I've been fortunate in that I've been able to travel alongside inspiring adventurers. I spent a remarkable weekend on the Estonian island of Saaremaa with Slovakian DK. I met DK in Ventspils, Latvia and remarked at the time that I'd like to experience his 'Tales of Adventure' first hand. Hey Presto...!

Day 266 to 269
Tallinn > Kuressaare > Muhu > mainland Estonia
Reunion and CS meeting. Bus, Ferry and hitch to island. Glove drifts away, running mate locks himself in toilet. Mother of 3 CouchSurfer unable to host, puts us in the hands of her father. DK bonds with him over Mountaineering experience. We stay the following night with his 73-year-old sister. DK connects with her through rudimentary Russian. Neither of us speak Estonian, she doesn't speak English. Canned Tuna eats by Meteor crater. Cemetery chats. Sunrise and sky streaks, Windmills at Angla.
