Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania
03.10.2009 -49 °C
Writing this entry in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. Have enjoyed my time in the Baltic region. It is obviously not the pack season with most of the hostels I have stayed in being near empty. While this has meant meeting other travels has been non existent event it did mean I had 2 grate nights with the staff in the hostel in Riga were I was the only person in a 10 bed dorm.
The weather has been cold and wet. This added so adventure to my time in Sigulda. Sigulda…never hear of it? Nether had I until a few days before I got there. It is a town about 40 kms north east of Riga in Latvia and is a major sight seeing spot in the summer as it has some castles and a river. Although this time of there year it is dead. Anyway when I was there I hired a mountain bike for a day and road around the forest looking at stuff. Does not sound that exciting but it was. Only issue was that the track was muddy and it hailed. So buy the end of the day is was cover in mud and soaked to the core. But all in all it was a good day.
It has only been a short entry mainly to say that I am still alive and kicking and that I have not forgotten about everyone back home. It has been a quite past have many days since I last wrote. Tomorrow I am on an over night bus to Warsaw in Poland.
