This was my first excursion of our Baltic States visit. After setting the rig up in the rented vehicle, my sister whom I was visiting in Riga and I headed out for Valga, Estonia. It is a border town about a 2 hour drive away N.E. of Riga.

The border crossing between countries here are very unceremonious. If you weren’t paying attention, you could easily drive right past the sign.
