The Baltics
... in fiction and nonfiction.

(The Russian Baltics included, i.e. essentially the coastal stretches of the Kaliningrad/Königsberg and St. Petersburg areas, but please limit it to those parts of the country ... ALL of Russia is manifestly NOT a Baltic country! Same applies mutatis mutandis to Poland and Germany, for that matter.)

Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Wow. Thank you, Bettie! That map is going to go straight on top of the list!

Beautiful ... what a great place to live in!


message 5: by ☯Bettie☯ (new)

☯Bettie☯ Yes *sigh* - and they have a medieval (hanseatic league) festival every year, which must be fun to see.


message 7: by ☯Bettie☯ (new)

☯Bettie☯ I have auto-magically skagged that for my folder. Wonderful!


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) I love medieval miniatures!

Found this one when searching for "Hanse" and "Mittelalter" ...


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Recollections of a Baltic encounter (not mine; my grandpa's) -- hard to imagine that this took place almost 100 years ago!


message 10: by ☯Bettie☯ (last edited Feb 10, 2011 03:00AM) (new)

☯Bettie☯ That's interesting T-A. I find these evenings with the lists to be very invigorating. I hardly ever leave a list without ordering one penny wonder, so from that point of view, where I was trying to diminish my TBR pile, the reverse is happening. lol

This list has reminded me that I started the Teutonic Knights and never went back to it. I shall remedy that sooner rather than later.

Also, if my geography serves me right, the moomins were created in a group of islands off the Finish coast.

Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Yess!! (The only part of Finland -- other than a day trip to Helsinki -- that I've ever been to, in fact; and it's extremely beautiful there, too!!)




Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) ... and, yes, I absolutely agree on this "list evening" experience. Nevertheless, I think I'll cut this one short now and cuddle up in bed with my kitties. Have a good night! (How do you say that in Swedish?)


message 13: by ☯Bettie☯ (new)

☯Bettie☯ I'm away to my truckle too. Sleep tight.


message 14: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl You used to be able to see Google Streetview on Gotland, but the feature seems to have gone away. :(


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Why -- out of privacy concerns?


message 16: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl I don't have any specific knowledge of why, but that's probably a good guess. My own city block here in the U.S. used to be on Streeview but no longer is - but some blocks in my neighborhood still are. It's a mystery to me! I have heard that some parts of Europe are more resistant to Streetview than Americans or other parts of Europe - right now I'm looking and Germany doesn't have Streetview, the Netherlands does, England does, France, Spain, and Italy do, but not Portugal.

Actually, Germany does have Streetview -- here it's a matter of individual choice whether you have your home depicted or not. (This link, for example, should -- if you have Streetvew enabled on your computer -- take you to Karlsplatz, or "Stachus," in Munich, with part of the Bavarian Ministry of Justice on the left side of the image.) But, yes, privacy concerns are certainly an issue here. Whereever individual residents of a street object to having their homes depicted, the houses in question will be blanked out/scrambled, in the same way it's done with all car registration numbers and other individualizing features.
