Kölnial Wedding

The only important date to hit on our travels; Thomas & Sue’s Wedding and Sue’s birthday. So here we are in Cologne. We broke free of the land travel as it was 4 trains and great expense by land. We still struggle with this one, how can it be cheaper to fly? It makes no…

Polskard From Krakow

Back on the train and we’re travelling south to Krakow. Our first day was a school day. We were completely unaware that salt was mined in the same way as coal. Yes we’ve heard of salt mines but didn’t think these mines would go down 320+ meters deep where 50kg+ blocks are cut and carried…

Polskard From Gdansk 

Back on the train now to continue up north to Gdansk. We arrived on a drizzly evening, we woke up to a drizzly morning. Food will cheer us up, it did. As we have an apartment our first stop is the Old Market. A beautifully restored building full of lovely food, what’s not to love?…

Polskard from Toruń

Back on the train now, feels good. 4 hour hop to the north to visit Toruń. Advised by Lonely Planet to stop here as it managed to avoid the attentions of the aerial assaults of the war. It is indeed a beautiful city, fortified by the Teutonic Knights and examples of architecture from several centuries…

Lift to Uania 

Bus was our transport of choice to get to Vilnius from Riga. The trains aren’t so good for getting around the Baltics, or into Poland, as there is a lot of renovation work going on to update these networks. So a new experience for us. It was very comfortable for the short 4 hour hop…

Latvia

So we pass unhindered straight into Latvia as it’s part of the European Union, the Union us Brits are about to leave. What a shame and, more to the point, what a pain. Ah well. Our first tourist spot is Cēsis where Latvia’s largest medieval, the aptly named Cēsis Castle, stands majestic. Built in the…

Saint Bad Up North

Well we arrived in St Petersburg at 7:00AM in style as we travelled on the Red Arrow train from Moscow, Grand Class, so we had our own toilet and shower. It is now the only way to travel. Knowing we wouldn’t be able to check in until 2.00 we booked a walking tour with Peter’s…
