A Super Smart Cruise To The Baltics

I'm very much about what I call the "Who Knew" factor. Whether I'm strolling the streets in my hometown of New York City or bicycling in Denmark, I'm always on the lookout for surprises so that I might exclaim, "Who knew?" And this sensibility carries through to cruise trips as well, where I want to land in smaller ports, engage with a staff that provides a lot of interesting and, hopefully, surprising historical context, and have the opportunity to participate in three of my favorite activities: walking through parks and gardens, as well as hiking and bicycling. Zegrahm Expeditions is an adventure travel company with cruises that fit the bill for me. They are very much all about the "Who Knew" factor.


















Check out my article that appears in the Huffington Post about my cruise through the Baltics with Zegrahm. I traveled with such a smart staff that I'm sure my IQ got a boost.

Hi Irene, The cruise didn't include Copenhagen but Bornholm, where we did dock, was a great place for cycling.

Hi Vera Marie, I took that photo from the window of a glass studio in Bornholm, Denmark.

Small ship cruises offer so many opportunities. Looks like you found several fun ones in the Baltic.

I love the cat on the roof. Great pictures.

Hi Donna, Yes, a small cruise provides so many advantages for me, including being able to dock in tiny ports, and having the staff know everyone's name as well as likes, dislikes and idiosyncrasies.

Hi MyKidsEatSquid, Thanks. Glad you liked 'em. When I saw the cat, I thought it was pretty cool, too.
