I then had to drive through to Germany to get the next ferry. I was impressed by the humour introduced by road signs whilst in Germany and battling through endless road works.
The happy smiley face filled me with confidence until I escaped the road works to instead be greeted by traffic jams. I saw no smiley faces anywhere during this lot, mildly disappointed.
Getting to the ferry with a solid 10 minutes to spare after the delays in Germany, I enjoyed the sunshine on the upper decks of the ferry over to Lithuania. It seemed that summer had arrived properly at last.
We were greeted by a pilot boat and led to the correct docking area in what was a much bigger port than I had expected. Strange, those two ships look familiar…
