Eight Hours in Copenhagen

Yesterday I started my life's greatest adventure (yet) - for two weeks I'm going to live in... Japan! It' s my dream come true, actually, but I'll write about it more later. Now, I want to write a little bit about Copenhagen, where I had my transfer flight and eight hours of waiting in between. Since I'm traveling not alone, our group of ten Lithuanians decided to search for nice place to brunch and see the town a little. It was my first time ever in Denmark, so here's some pictures that I took on one really early Sunday morning...

Unės Kaunaitės "Laiškai Elzei" pristatymas arba teksto kinematografija

Tokie rudens vakarai, koks buvo šis yra tobuli: giedri, su jau smagiai skruostus ir nepridengtas rankas gnaibančia vėsuma bei galimybe apsirengti  ką nors iš to, na, šiltesnio garderobo. Štai tokiu metu man ypač patinka minti dviračio pedalus, smagiai aplenkiant kamščiuose stovinčias mašinas. Nuoširdžiai džiaugiuosi, kad šįvakar mane į tokį gražų rudenėjantį Vilnių ištraukė du dalykai: renginys ir beveik darbinis susitikimas. Apie susitikimo tikslą papasakosiu greitu metu, tačiau šis įrašas skirtas tokiam šauniam pasibuvimui, dėl kurio kai patrakusi myniau į Gedimino prospekto galą (čia kad ta vėsuma kuo mažiau gnaibytų). Neseniai po rekonstrukcijos duris atvėrusioje Nacionalinėje Martyno Mažvydo bibliotekoje vyko Unės Kaunaitės trečiosios knygos Laiškai Elzei sutiktuvės-diskusija.

Exploring Poland, Part 7: Where and What to Eat

Before my journey to Poland I wrote that "we have three weeks to explore this country: to taste it's traditional cuisine (sadly, I imagine, it is quite similar to ours...)". And my dear Lord, I couldn't have been more wrong...

Exploring Poland, Part 6: Fun in Warsaw

After I came back from my vacation, the most often asked question was "Did you liked Warsaw?" I did, actually. And I'll tell you why.

Exploring Poland, Part 5: Lublin Voivodeship

According to Wikipedia, Lublin is the 9th largest city in Poland. For us, Lithuanians, it is important because of the year 1569, the Union of Lublin. Since we stayed in Kazimierz Dolny, Lublin was not too far away, so at (almost) the end of our journey, we got to explore the Lublin Voivodeship.

Exploring Poland, Part 4: Krakow and Something More

Autumn has arrived and I'm still remembering our summer trip to Poland. I wish I could be more consistent with my blog updates, but, as the lyrics in one song go, life is life (na-na na-na-na...). However, this time I prepared a post not only about Krakow (as I promised in the post before), but also what you can see around this magnificent city of kings and queens.
