We left Ray & Janina in Lithuania after a great couple of days stay in their home and set off to get to our next major stop off point in Russia.

Hi All, here we are typing from a gigantic super shopping centre just inside Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania. Since our last blog (yes i know it's been a few days) we've been busy driving (obviously) and also through a few more countries. We originally realised that our slightly optimistic timescale to travel up Sweden then down Finland would've taken far too long so we re-assessed our timings and decided to get the 'short' ferry across from Stockholm to Helsinki.

In an ironic role reversal Neil eventually woke up at 2:45 yesterday morning and waved off by Mr Panton we set off on our journey.

To be honest neither of us can remember too much of the first day's driving since collectively we both managed about 3 hours sleep the previous night!
620 miles later we're here typing this in Aabenra, Denmark...woohoo! read more »
