8th of September. Castles in the sky
Set off and I’m riding through the lakes of Trakai county which are rather nice. Then I see Trakai castle which is rather spendid in the morning sun. Then its onto Vilnius. Entering a capital city can be rather awkward trying to avoid busy main roads. Not Vilnius I end up riding down an old cobbled road through woodland until I reach an industrial estate and then theres pavement all the way into the city centre. But it was one of the easiest rides to a capital yet. Of course my hostel is all the other way across town but its a pleasant enough walk through old town (not riding on cobbled streets anymore).
