Review about Splendor of the Baltics with Nida Resort by Brian Jansons
Sveiki! Just a quick thank you note from our family for your wonderful help in guiding this Baltic trip! As you know, Latvia is a place I've wanted to visit for most of my life since my grandparents were both born there. It was an incredible feeling being able to show the kids their roots. We also enjoyed Estonia and Lithuania of course! We didn't have any issues other than Emily having a bit of a stubborn stomach bug for a few days. She missed out on a few of the tours because she stayed back at the hotel. I don't think it was food related since we all ate the same things, but our guide, Eriks, was on top of it and bought some local medicine that seemed to help. She's in tip-top shape now thankfully! That being said, the Novotel in Vilnius had a really nice breakfast in the morning and our room was big and spacious which helped Emily get some much needed rest. Other memorable events would definitely include our visit to St. Peter and Paul's Church, our boat trip from Nida, seeing Rundale Palace, and all of the other great museums. I really got a feel for what life must have been like for my grandparents way back when. Thanks for making our Baltic tour as memorable as it was!
