Wow! What a delicious outdoor breakfast we had at the Rendevous Restaurant in the Romantic Hotel overlooking a beautiful parkway in Panevezys, Lithuania. In order to make up time and to avoid more trials like yesterday, we opt to take a bus from here to the capitol of Latvia, Riga, on the Baltic Sea. The deluxe bus ride only cost us less than $8 with no charge for our bicycles and it saved us 2 days of riding. Now this is my kind of trip!

After getting a hotel downtown just a few block from downtown, we set out sightseeing. What a beautiful town square they have-quite impressive. We had a most delicious lunch at a Garlic restaurant so no one got close to us after that. We walked to the castle to get a great view just as they were changing the guards. We walked to the Old town, but were tired after all the walking we had done. So we stopped in Double Coffee for coffee and a treat. Neither of us were hungry for supper so we chose to soak in our huge hottub in our room. It was just what I needed to let me get a good nights sleep. Our hotel cost us $126 but it was a huge bedroom with a 4-man hottub and a nice balcony that gave us great views.
