Whirlwind Tour of Lithuania

My parents originally said that they wanted a relaxing trip to Lithuania, so I planned an easy schedule.  After they arrived, they decided that they should see as much as possible in the eight days they were in Lithuania.  We had a whirlwind trip and saw everything from villages to the Baltic Sea coast, plus two days each in Vilnius and Kaunas — and, of course, the castle at Trakai and the ethnographic museum at Rumšiškės.  We had a great visit together and a lot of fun exploring on foot, by train, and by car.  I was too exhausted at the end of each day to write blog posts!

They left this morning for part two of their European vacation — a week in Spain visiting Menorca and Barcelona.  Fortunately the volcanic ash cloud didn’t disrupt their flights.  I’ll post photos from our adventures over the next several days.

Here we are at the Baltic Sea coast in Palanga
