I heard that there are ice roads connecting the east coast of Estonia to Piirissaare isle located in the lake Peipsi so I felt even more encouraged to go there. When I told my family about the plan, my aunt recommended to contact the Mesi Tare guest house. The owner could offer us a tent with internal heating in which we could sleep on the ice, and a custom vehicle (karakat) for transportation.
The sight, where the sky and land melt into one another, is just unbelievable.
Setting up the slackline was quite smooth and thought-out. Soon the slackline was up and my dream was beginning to take shape. The first time I came up with an idea to set up the slackline in the middle of a lake was at the beginning of 2016. The first similar project took place on the 99th birthday of Estonia in 2017. Now I could finally make my dream come true exactly as I had planned.
The next hours went by enjoying my passion and making art.
Unforgettable slackline session was followed by a very cool acroyoga session with Kristin.

All of a sudden something extraordinary started to happen. The ice started to crackle all over lake Peipsi. It was totally unexpected, but it did not seem to be dangerous to me so I was the first one to close my eyes inside of our nice, warm tent and fall into a deep sleep. Kristin and Kristjan on the other hand heated the oven all night long and told scary stories about what could happen if the ice would break apart.
really like to thank Kristjan, Kristin and Armin for their willingness to join
me in this adventure and for having trust in me the whole time. I know to whom
I can turn to in the future when any more crazy ideas pop into my mind. Big
thanks to Gibbon Slacklines and Oneinchdreams for supporting the project and to
Mesi Tare for the warm tent and transport.
Until the next adventures!
