A very interesting cycling holiday in an enchanting area

The tour was very well prepared. The material on this was extensive and helpful. The tour descriptions waren very accurate. These detailed descriptions waren unfortunately sometimes too confusing or misleading. In addition, the text was written in a font that was too small, so that we had to dismount and read every time it was not about cycle path 10. Since the description was written by non-native speakers, which is first of all commendable, waren a few words were chosen incorrectly and led us astray at first. All in all, the tour was very well chosen and it was fun to cycle through this beautiful landscape, forests, lagoon on one side, the sea on the other. In the villages, stork nests often lined our way. The hotels waren simple and sufficient, had everything you need. The room in the "Nerija" was very spacious and had enough storage space. The view in the "Nerija" and in the "Gilija" - roofs, was less nice, despite an early booking. In the "Gilija" we were bothered by the cooking vapors in the morning before getting up and in the evening. But since it was very warm in the room, you had to open the window. The "Old Mill" had a much too small bathroom, which did not allow any storage space for washing utensils. You could just put part of the toothbrush on the glass shelf above the mini sink. There was only one toothbrush cup because there wasn't enough space for a second one. It was extremely extreme in room (204) the last night (18-19.08 August): the sink was so small and inconveniently placed that you could only stand at an angle You could brush your teeth and you had to be careful not to brush outside of the pool. Shaving wet was almost impossible. The half board was fine. The best care was in "Gilija" and "Nerija". Despite the criticism, it was a very nice cycling holiday. We would recommend everyone to do this as well. And criticism seems important to us if you want to improve something.
