Of the 35 on our coach, we were the only two English, our very agreeable fellow travellers being Americans, Australians, two NewZealanders and two from South Africa. Karri Anne Rossum was our Guide and she was Superb.
We started the tour in Warsaw, Poland where the Mermaid is the symbol of the City, and Chopin their most beloved citizen and the zlotto the currency. Of course one of our visits was to a Chopin Concert. As usual for us we booked for all the optional excursions and therefore had a very full programme. After Warsaw we travelled to Vilnius in Lithuania where the currency was The Lits, then Riga in Latvia, currency Lats, next Tallinn in Estonia, currency the Esti, then on to St. Peterburg in Russia, currency the rouble, by the bullet (fast) train to Moscow and finally Minsk in Belarus, where the currency was the Belarussian Rouble, after which we returned to Warsaw and a flight back to Heathrow where a private car would meet us to drive us back to Pat’s house in Coventry.
