Dubrovnik was the last stop on our “Lesbians Gone Wild: Croatia” tour and as we approached the entrance to the city in our baller rental car I finally realized why everyone has been going gaga over Croatia.

When people talk about how fabulous Croatia is, they mostly mean the coastal cities along the Adriatic Sea. And, they probably mean Dubrovnik.

The train ride to Bratislava.

Did you know that Bratislava is the only national city that borders two independent countries? Neither did I. Actually, I didn’t even know that Bratislava existed until we bought tickets to go there. I’m learning so much on this trip!

What’s a Vilnius?

Lithuania's oldest cathedral.

After leaving Tallinn, we decided to stop for a few days in Vilinius, Lithuania, mainly to avoid taking a 24-hour bus ride from Tallinn to Krakow. The bus ride was about 9 hours and it wasn’t as enjoyable us our previous ride, but it was acceptable.

Where the hell is Tallinn?

As an American citizen and a Japanese citizen we were allowed up to 30 days in Russia so according to our visas we had to leave by July 5th before midnight.

Since we didn’t want to be sent to the gulags, we planned our exit for July 2nd which would give us 3 days of buffer time, just in case. Fortunately, when we arrived at the Estonian border, Russian immigration didn’t give us any trouble and we breezed right through into our first European country.
