Jäneda (pronounced Joohhneda)
This place is located in Estonia and is the goal of this year’s Wima Rally.
Traveling there by plane? Naah! By train and ferry? Naah! By car? Naah!

The shortest distance between Vienna and Jäneda is approx. 1650 km, but where would be the fun and the charm if we would simply take the fastest route or to travel with another means of transportation?

If we could drive primarily via highway and expressways the route would be done in approx. 3 days, but the Polish and Baltic roads are
1. Not ready yet, and
2. Why should we cross countries when country and people are left aside?

Good advice is therefore hard to get: the journey should not last too long. After all we are still working and holiday days are scarce. On the other hand we also want to get to know the country and the people.

To solve this, Su, Renate and I have assembled to agree on the available days and to define a rough plan of overnight stays.
The rough framework was then enriched with sights and cities which are interesting for us and thus the route and days were further refined.
A little spare time is calculated for each day (except the first one) , prefering to arrive early, or with time buffer, than always hurry behind the plan.

 

 

With this method we have put together a “small” fine route, which takes us about 2400 km to our destination in Estonia.

Along our way are interesting places and areas such as. Malbork, Masuria, Kryžių Kalnas, Gauja, Riga, and of course Jäneda. 🙂
We will get to know Estonia via our week in Jäneda.

Naturally our report on our travel and adventures will follow after the Rally:-)
