Hey!! There have been a few change of plans in my itinerary, and I am planning on travelling around Eastern Europe next summer with my mother... The only eastern european country that either of us has been to was Czech Republic, and we loved it!!!
We are thinking of going to Lativa, Estonia, and Lithuania, however we are unsure on what the best way to travel around would be... is it cheaper to get some sort of train pass, or is there a better way to travel?
We don't know much about these countries, so any input or opinions would be great!! thank you very much!!

cheapest, cleanest, quickest. zig zag Baltics easily with the Eurolines. Some of the best travelling Ive had.
Seconded @ bus. Trains might be bit cheaper, but they don't run very often.
Whilst trains can be used fr some internal journeys, excepting one sumemr only weekly jny btween Riga and Vilnius, there are NO train services between the Baltic countries [they do periodically restart some, but they don't tend to last long before getting cancelled], so if you use public transport, you have to use the bus (and there are lots of them). And whilst it's entirely up to you, and providing you understand the potential dangers involved, routes between he 3 capitals in particular are amongst the easiest in Europe to hitch along, and it is unusual if you have to wait more than 10 or 15 minutes, often getting lifts for the whole journey.
If You planning to go to Estonia..then I can say that, its really nice country...the nature is so so undescribably beautyful, Lahemaa nature park for example. You can use www.bookingestonia.com services when planning to go to Estonia.
and wanted to add that i also loved being in Chech Republik...cheap and nice country
