What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Should I ever be lucky enough to own a palace, I would like to decorate it like Rudland Palace, one of the many beautiful places we visited. I really like the rococo stucco decorations. I was also inspired by all the public art, especially the sculptures I saw in all sorts of random places.
What did you think of your group leader?
Jolita, our group leader was fantastic, Nothing was too much trouble for her and she did everything she could to make sure everyone had a good time and a hassle free trip.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
During our city stays, there was plenty of free time so read your guidebook in advance to come up with a plan of how to make the best use of your time, The food in all three countries was excellent and good value although vegetarians might struggle to find much variety. On the other hand, chocoholics will do well. Luckily, we did a lot of walking to make up for all the great food.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I very much enjoyed this tour. As well as seeing some amazing sights and paddling in the Baltic sea (it was way to cold for swimming), I learnt a lot about the three countries, especially their turbulent history. I would definitely recommend this tour and would like to go back to and see more of Riga, Vilnius and Talinn.
