Had an really early morning, woke up 06:00 and breakfast already 06:30.

Breakfast really nice, now as a new thing even some fresh juice they made there on the spot.

Once work was again done I rushed out from Warsaw as it was about to start raining and it looked that way pretty much all day. I needed to take fastest route as for some reason my navigator was not willing to import my planned route… but this was ok as this way I probably managed not to get wet!

Had one stop for fuel and coffee on the way, other than that just drove.

Woke up early to do some work and went to have breakfast by 7:00.

Breakfast was just fine in this Hotel Centro, just enough to get day started.

After the breakfast continued work and after that started packing.

Breakfast at Ibis Warszawa Centrum is not that good as it used to be, not bad either but selection has been cut down. Also internet connection is really poor nowadays, not really...

Woke up something like 04:30 in the morning and started thinking what to do next. Decided to make a call to Eurooppalainen Emergency Service for address where it would be most simple to get treatment and got an address in Warsaw to go to.

So plan was then to head towards Warsaw which was only some 200 km away from Bialystok.

Breakfast was served starting from 07:00 in Gościnna Kamienica and had something to eat. Not feeling very hungry after eating that big monster tortilla last evening.

After breakfast just enjoyed my time in the room relaxing.

Breakfast at Hotel Gustavs was starting pretty late, 08:00. They did have breakfast room and check-out in the same building so no morning walk needed.

Breakfast was fine, nothing fancy but just enough normal bread, eggs, juice and coffee.

Rooms in this hotel are all different. Mine had separate bedroom and a living room.

Woke up early again and went to breakfast right after 07:00. Again, nobody else was there yet.

Breakfast at Hotel Fryderyk was just as good as they advertised, no complaints!

Had my alarm set to wake me up at 06:30, but as I had turned on the one I have normally on it did not fire due to the fact that it was for workdays only… so almost overslept and was at breafast at 7:15…

Had an excellent breakfast again, will take me through the day just fine.

Day started early again, woke up after 05:00 already and started planning for the coming day.

Had an early breakfast, not many others were there yet.

Managed to work a bit as well, had a one conference call with a colleague to guide him into right direction on how to finish tasks during my absence.

After that final packing, filled water bag downstairs from the restaurant and I was ready to ride again by 08:30.

Woke up early to plan for next day and also to check the bike as yesterday I was feeling that tires were not on their best grip.

Old guy from the reception was still sleeping in a reception coach in his underwear and was just telling multiple times that ‘breakfast eight o’clock’. Well, I was not after the breakfast but to get bike out from garage!

I had agreed yesterday with the receptionist that I would like to have breakfast 07:00 in the morning and once I had packed all my stuff went to see if it was there or not and everything was ready.

This day was all about transit back to Finland. I had set the target to drive to Warsaw on this day and as there was too many kilometers my choice of road was autobahn.

Yesterday was a working day again, had a customer visit in the area and did also some other stuff. But now I was riding again.

So by 7:30 I had my breakfast, checked out from the Hotel garni Käferstein and back on the road again. This hotel was actually very nice place, not much services around it but hotel staff was very friendly and keen on keeping guests happy. Will for sure visit there again when in the area.

I had two stops on the way, both of them to refuel the bike.

Morning started early, had good time to pack everything before breakfast and even put everything on to bike as well. Bike was found where I left it, in the garage.

Other bike that was there last night was already gone.

Right after 08:00 got small breakfast, just enough to get me started.

I woke up quite early so I used the time before breakfast to find a hotel for one more night. I had also some drying to be done, my socks were not completely dry after a wash last night but I had a dryer in the room as well.

Quick check that bike is there before the breakfast.

Finally the day was there again! Long waited vacation was there again.

I had originally planned to leave on Thursday morning, but I had somehow mixed the ferry booking and was pretty much forced to take the one I got and it happened to be the one on 18th of June, Wednesday night ferry leaving Helsinki at 21:30 towards Tallinn.

Plan was now to drive directly from Tallinn to Warsaw using Via Baltica and not take any smaller roads due to the fact that I was driving by night.

Everything was already packed, just some fine tuning and I was ready to leave.

First stop was going to be my local gas station, I was not going to stop in Tallinn for fuel as I wanted to get as fast forwards as possible.

I was an hour before ferry departure at the harbor, but everybody was already queuing in there. Couple of other bikers were waiting to board as well, but not really many.
