    What a great link!!! I may go to Riga next week!!! Would go there in April! Hugs

  2. We also experienced Riga that way, but we had far too little time. Now we see Balticum Runt more as a preparation trip with Helge, if there is enough time.

    We have just started planning for our motorhome trip to the Baltics this summer. Found your blog and it is just wonderful. I have now settled on Estonia and Latvia, now I just need to find a bit about Lithuania.
