Ascent Trip Report

48 intense hours in the Baltic! In our most unplanned trip ever, we caught a real cheap Ryanair flight to Kaunas, Lithuania. On the same day, we also visited Vilnius, saw the gated Belarus checkpoint and - of course - "climbed" the country's rather silly highpoint. The next day we drove over 800 kilometers, partly on dirt roads and on almost no freeways, during our quest for the Latvian highpoint. We considered driving further north into Estonia, but the distance was simply too long in relation to the time we had avilable (our flight back to Gothenburg left before 7 o'clock the following morning).
