When things don’t go as planned, it is very relieving to have people ready to help you out.
I was not originally planning to go to Klaipeda, the Baltic Sea port of Lithuania. However, a member of the CouchSurfing community sent me a message after seeing my travel plans in the website and recommended that I should definitely go there. And she was right.
I arrived in Šiauliai, Lithuania after a long day of sitting on buses all the way from Tallinn. After spending the night with my super nice Couchsurfing hosts Iván and Ester, I had time to walk around the historical town of Šiauliai and its most famous landmark, the Hill of Crosses (Kryžių kalnas).
