    • Help in developing itinerary

      Latvia Nov 14, 2015 at 12:22 PM

      Hi fellow VirtualTourist,

      We would like to ask for your help in planning our trip to both Latvia and Lithuania. We would like to create some itinerary with your input so that we can visit and see those things that you feel best represents the country. We posted something earlier but now have a more definite idea of dates.

      We have about 10 usable days between July 4 and July 15 to explore both places. If you feel that it is not enough time for both pls. say so. Our first choice then would be Latvia. My wife’s family hails from Riga.

      We would leave from Lausanne/Geneva, Switzerland on July 3. We have to be in Warsaw, Poland on July 15.

      In addition to in location itineraries we would appreciate your opinions on the best way to get from Lausanne/Geneva to Riga (assumed start point in Latvia). Best by train, bus or air. If by air which airline, if bus which bus company. Also, best way to get to Warsaw.

      We would also welcome thoughts on accommodations possibly for use as our base and accessible to transportation.

      We are both curious of people, place and culture. My wife (58yo) is a 5th grade science teacher and I am somewhat retired (66yo) and “always exploring” interesting things. We are in good health and 2 summers ago spent fabulous 6 weeks exploring Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Hungary, and southern Poland.

      Pls. don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have to help you help us.

      Thank you for your time in reading this request as well as for your time in providing a thoughtful response.

    • Old Hospital in Bauska

      Bauska Nov 9, 2015 at 11:45 PM

      My family and I traveled to Latvia a few years ago, and visited my dad's hometown of Bauska. He had not been back since WWII, and we were trying to find the hospital where he was born. We found a medical-type of building, thought to be on the site where a hospital used to be. Any advice to what the name of this place was? It did not seem advanced enough to be an active hospital, but there was a few old stretchers sitting in the hallway. I just want to know what this place was. I think there was a grocery store and a bank on the main road right off to where this place was located.

      Lake Aluksne

      Aluksne Aug 8, 2011 at 3:37 PM

      I am going to make a night stop in Aluksne, Latvia. I was thinking of taking a swim in Aluksne Lake the next day, if the weather is OK. Any suggestion on the good places to swim in the lake? (I've got a car, so distance is not a problem) Thank you!
