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.
