4 days in Lithuania
I remember an article written at the beginning of the trip called"3 days in Montenegro“… It would appear to be so recent and at the same time an eternity... We have experienced so much since... At the time we dare not even imagine the journey in recent months!
In short, where were we?
Yes, we'd been the Latvia/Lithuania border on July 31, 2015.
After a first night in free camping site a few kilometres from the border, driving the morning until Palanga.
This is where one receives a call from the parents of Thomas we knew in Riga a few days earlier with their camper: they are on the road and go to us. One would be tempted to say thatthey put the turbo, but precisely... one camper is defective, and it will make them much concern in the coming days... In short, we find ourselves after 8 months, they forget a moment their technical problems.
We sleep close to Kleipeda, in a parking lot where a night cinema and outdoor session will take place at the beginning of night. Fun!
Then Sunday 2 August, each astride his bike saddle and we leave to the discovery of the magnificent Curonian spit. Trails us walking between the pines, or along the sand dunes. A picnic at the edge of the water, a NAP on the beach... it's hot, it's nice! We announced 50 kms from dish... at the end of day, it is 60 kms it is registered to the meter and the Curonian Spit is more hilly than what we thought! In short, congratulations to the courageous!
We get by bus to Kleipeda where the camper is waiting for us. After a few kilometers - in camper this time – there the night a little corner for a tent and a camper in the parking lot of a cemetery. OK, it will do the trick, you can not always have spots of dream!
The next day, the landscape scroll behind the glass. It runs along the Neman River made famous during the second world war, where Thomas did a quick dip to cool off from the Sun that tape.
We arrive late in the day to Kaunas (I leave to you pronounce it like you want to!). We visit the old city by bike the next day, under a blazing sun. A very pretty old town, without too many tourists.
After a failure of the Turbo of the camper repair, we take the road together. The campaign of Lithuania seems to resemble that of Latvia. The main roads are not really suitable for cyclos: we cross a few rolling there despite the many trucks and the lack of emergency stopping strip... say we are happy not to be there by bike!
The speed is faster that bike... we are already in Poland!
