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.

Some pictures from the hotel room window:

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 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.

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.
