Since Cait enjoys sharing tasty, healthy recipes on her blog, her first stop was the Ööbiku Gastronomy Farm to prepare superfoods the #EstonianWay. Wild, seasonal ingredients have an age-old place in local cuisine – and some incredible health benefits too. Cait foraged dandelion greens straight from nearby meadows to be served with a three-course lunch.

Bangkok, Copenhagen, Lisbon and Cartagena are just some of the cities featured in her travel guides. Estonia, however, is one place she had to look up on the map, but after her first visit, Cait feels “completely blown away”. In her own words: “from the food, to the people, to the gorgeous architecture and landscape –Tallinn exceeded all expectations and was truly one of the most fun trips I’ve ever been on.”
