A bubble of melancholy expands in my chest each time I look at the map thinking this back on my family’s journey alongside the Baltic Sea coastline. So, I thought I would tell a bit of our story and zip the adventure in a single essay. The purpose for our project was also to increase awareness of numerous treasures of the region. It was not always easy to keep the account of all of them, but you will find here a reference to numerous sites, landmarks and scenic overlooks.
