Lithuania - last minute travel comments

Jump to last reply

We are all set to leave on May 14 for a two-week trip. We'll take the train from Wilmington to Newark Airport. Then it is SAS to Copenhagen and on to Vilnius. That was absolutely the best and cheapest (we used Expedia) ticket we could find. The train trip is sort of a nuisance, but we think it is easier than driving from Maryland to New Jersey and cheaper than parking the car at Newark for 2 weeks.

First up Kaunas, staying at the Nemunas Tour hotel (4 nights); then 2 nights in a hotel near the cousin's village of Balbieriskis; then 2 nights at the Hotel Naglis in Nida on the Curonian Spit; finally 3 nights in Vilnius at the Hotel Rinno, We will be driving most of the time although the car will go back to the airport when we check into the Hotel Rinno as our return flight leaves at 6:40 am, we don't want to fuss with car returns at 4:00 am, and who needs a car in downtown Vilnius anyway.

The cousins know we're coming. A new friend at Lithuanian Hall in Baltimore reviewed and corrected the translations we got from Google. FYI, we used Google to translate what they wrote to us, sentence by sentence, and it seemed to work pretty well.

Any warnings or advice?

Is drinking water generally safe of should we stick to bottled water? How are the roads? Is safety any kind of an issue? Are there health issues we should be concerned about?

We want to pack as lightly as possible. Any thoughts about what to expect weather-wise between May 15 and 35?

I'll be blogging as I usually do when we travel (ellenbcutler.com) and I will try to post a trip report when we're back. Well, consider this the first installment of the trip report.

We have received a multitude of helpful responses from many people Thanks to one and all. We have been trying to get this trip to happen since 1989. I guess patience is a virtue...

Cheers, Ellen
