On the road again….

The famous hill of crosses, Sauili, Lithuania. The tap water tasted like sulfur!

The weather has been extremely wet since leaving Riga. I have camped in several swampy forests and I was glad to have a roof over my head in Kaunas, Lithuania. I am only a few km north of the Polish border and will be spending the night near some lakes viewed from the map. My tent has gotten worse and I have to build up a sleeping platform in order to avoid being soaked at night. However the countryside is beautiful and my infection is healing up rather nicely. If I am lucky my sleeping bag will stay dry and the rain will subside long enough for me to cook some pasta. Soon the weather will become nice again, I hope. Anyway, here’s to Poland!

    • Great! I loved the hill of crosses as well but really enjoyed the churches and countryside in the interior of the country. I experienced pretty bad weather so it was not the easiest time for travel.
