The Hill of Crosses

Today has been the bleakest days travel for the whole trip. We left Vilnius this morning for a short run up to Riga in Latvia, with overcast skies and the threat of rain. The rain still hasn’t eventuated but it being grey and overcast all day with a very fresh wind blowing.

The one stop we made for the morning was at a place called the Hill of Crosses. The best way to cover this site is to give you the wiki link.

We travelled through flat farming land for the whole trip.

This is the shortest post I’ve written but I have no more today.
