On our recent trip to the Baltic States, Steve and I decided that taking the Lux Express buses between Vilnius and Riga, then Riga to Tallinn, would be the most efficient for our travels. Buses are not that popular in the United States, but in Europe bus travel abounds!
Each year, Steve and I take 10-14 days in August to explore a new and faraway land neither of us has visited before. This year, it’s the Baltic States! Several people I’ve spoken with have been confused about the Baltics versus the Balkins, so I thought I’d shed some light on this former portion of the Soviet Union that sees so few American visitors!
