Recap
Day One [H E R E]
Day Two [H E R E]

The final full day ended up being a really nice chill day, lunch at a local restaurant where I had a deep fried czech? block of cheese and fries. Fruit tea is a must with us girls, and they had the cutest mugs around, topped with their own lids – the art is magnifique. We then continued to the spend the day at ‘moms’ flower shop, which was great fun – as I even got the chance to make my own flower arrangement! (see 2nd picture from the bottom). We then ended the day at DunDun donuts – to eat a donut the size of my face and enjoy a warm mocha. After dinner, we also got the chance to enjoy a special Lithuanian treat called Sakotis shaped like a tree (refer to the last image), it’s a traditional sweet treat made from butter, eggs, flour, sugar, and cream and given in special occasion, so yes I felt uber loved when my Lithuanian family gifted this sweet treat to me.

This was my final day in Lithuania – safe to say I definitely would love to come back for another weekend visit. It’s the perfect amount of time required to visit this place. I probably would like to come during a much more warmer season though haha!

I do hope you enjoyed this short post, I have some Iceland travel blogs I wants to share with you, so do keep your eyes out for that! Until my next post, xoxoInstagram  ||  Twitter  ||  Tumblr  || Youtube

Recap with Day One [H E R E]

After a really cosy sleep, we started the day with a road trip to Anyksciai to go on this picturesque hike up the treetops which led me to a fantastic view of the landscape. It was really empty and quiet, quite perfect to be honest. The air was cold and crisp, I felt the need to preserve it and whisper throughout. It was honestly amazing and indescribable. The snow really added to the magical moment and worth going to especially for the view. If you’re a lover of nature and simple views then you will feel at peace here. I’m going to just stop rambling and let you enjoy the video and admire the pictures.

After the walk we went to Cosmos, to experience a trippy art installation! It was super fun to experience and worth the snapshots. When we went there wasn’t a queue and we were able to enter this glass room which took you into outer space. The lights dimmed, the eerie music on and the galactic atmosphere began. It really was a trippy experience and loved every minute off it.

The night ended with PIZZAAA, a girls night in, jacuzzi, and some lovely herbal tea.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and stay tuned for Day three and my Iceland Trip! Until my next post, xoxoInstagram  ||  Twitter  ||  Tumblr  || Youtube

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
