2. A ferry -
at Klaipeda, at the North end of the Curonian Spit. I can only assume that a return fare is charged at the East terminal, because our trip was free (nearly £5 saved :smile: )

There aren't many more worthwhile photos (of the 300+ I took !), maybe one or two.

I'd like to have spent more time in Poland (beautiful Baltic coast), Russia (the Kaliningrad enclave), Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia (failed to find the memorial to Joey Dunlop :cry: ).

Probably getting too old to contemplate another trip like that ! :-({|=
