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!
it snowed here yesterday! happy winter! hugs, janet and robert
Hi Julian, your blog has been wonderful to read.
Have you had a chance to check out my nephews web page, he and his partner are leaving on Sun. From Portland , OR for there ride to Patagonia, Argentina. He of coarse will be riding his hand cycle. Safe travels, I’ll be watching both of you now.
We have been in Lithuania last year and loved it! What was the most interesting place for you there? Hill of Crosses was our favorite.
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.
