July 26th we left for the Baltics. Our adventure was to last until August 10th when we would return home. This would be our first time to tour the countries of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. We felt it would be an interesting experience given the unrest in that part of the world. And it was.
We started our trip in Villinius, the capital of Lithuania. I didn’t really know what to expect but found the city to be very European, with lots of churches and interesting stores. The food was delicious and many of the city views were quite nice.
On the first day we walked from our hotel to the downtown area. Our first citing was the Catholic Cathedral that dominated this section of town.
