Lithuania || D A Y O N E
Saturday 05th November, 2016

A short 2 hour flight bought me from London Luton airport to Vilnius – the travelling aspect was really smooth and lovely, no issues. As soon as I left security, I was greeted by my beautiful friend and her mommy – we went straight away to eat and then went on a night time walk to explore the city.

We went to a lovely restaurant in the city called ‘Da Antonio‘ (very mafia and very Italian if you ask me), the service, the host, the location and the food was soooooo lovely. The etiquette in Lithuania is much more substantial and warming than any restaurant that I’ve been to in London, and trust me I’ve experienced a fair spectrum of restaurants in London, from cheap as chips to posh nosh in Mayfair.

To start of with we had a salmon with mascarpone cheese in a small waffle cone. The combination of the salmon with the creamy cheese and sweet waffle was very interesting and all so lovely – had me wanting more. We then had a shot of whipped cream cheese topped with sun dried tomatoes, olive oil and herbs, which was super light and refreshing – compliments of the chef of course. For my main course, I have a spinach and ricotta tortellini in a creamy sauce topped off with cappuccino foam. The foam was unusual for my tastebuds, but certainly added to the creaminess. To top off the evening we had affogato – a luxurious silky vanilla gelato topped with a shot of expresso. Yum. What a beautiful introduction to my first day in Lithuania.

Have a look through my eyes and come explore the cobbled streets of Lithuania with me.

We ended the evening with a stroll through the city into Old Vilnuis, I’m such a fan of old architecture so it was lovely to walk around and explore the place. Travelling in November is very cold, so be prepared to pack your winter garms!

I hope you enjoyed my journey, stay tuned for day 2 [H E R E]! Fun things happened. Until my next post, xoxoInstagram  ||  Twitter  ||  Tumblr  || Youtube
