Dear Dora, We've returned back home from our trip to the Baltic states. We had such a blast... It always seems that as soon as you're getting the hang of living in a foreign place and you feel that your body is used to the time difference, it's already time to pack up and come home! Those two weeks abroad were absolutely amazing and I don't think either of us were ready to leave. We really appreciated your guidance and with your personal connection to Lithuania, you gave us some really nice tips and suggestions that we definitely took to heart! I don't have anything bad to report about the tour itself, I think our time was spent wisely and it was well organized. I must say the locals in Vilnius were much nicer than in Tallinn! Not that we had any real issues, it was just something I noticed. It was fun tasting new food in each location. That's always one of my favorite parts about traveling. I will never forget the delicious bakery we had in Latvia... Oh my! Again, thank you - our Baltic tour was great... Such a nice time for us. All our best, Jeanny and Barry Lancaster
