Latvia & Lithuania

I followed up my journey around northern India, Bangladesh and Bhutan with a ten-day visit to Latvia and Lithuania, my 97th and 98th countries. After battling through monsoon rains and landslides in the Himalayas and the incredible traffic jams of Calcutta and Dhaka, it was nice, easy travelling in perfect north European summer weather. I was particularly impressed by the beautiful architecture of the capital cities, Riga and Vilnius. In fact I liked Latvia so much that I would quite like to live there one day.
