Posh Picnic in Tallin

We are planning a little train ride, leaving London on 29th March 2019

It's fast and furious, we will be in Athens in 17 days and 6 hours. I have done similar things before including in Europe. Part of the method is to get a deluxe picnic ordered for about a dozen people from the best delicatessen in town, the local Harrod's Food Hall or the Fortnum and Mason's if you like, and then just keep moving. We may need an intermediary to help us do this in the Baltics.
There's obviously no rush, but if you are a native of Tallin, Riga or Vilnius or Kaunas, or actually any European Union capital, and would like to help us share the love, please say hello. We have most of the others covered, but I'm always open to suggestions.

The first link was to a spread sheet of the itinerary, and the second to the blog of the great circular european railway challenge which is proof of concept as I can understand someone doubting the feasibility of something like this. I cant dump the itinerary as your platform doesnt allow that much content.
I now recall being chucked off various forums last time as I was perceived to be selling something. I'm not. If you dont know me you cant come on my trips. If you don't want this kind of thread it's not a problem.

That looks like a whale of a trip. Have a great time. Wish I could have seen your other posts.

It is a bit ridiculous Tim but we've done similar things several times before. You aren't quite sure what species you are when you drop off the last train, but it's an incredible experience.
The (over) planning is now all about trying to work out what a picnic looks like in each of our brethren countries. I'm currently browsing through Amsterdam, theres a place on the water side of the station called OceanDeli which looks like a one stop. Working out what stuff should go in at any of these cities is a sub project of it's own.
