Estonia Once Again

You probably already know that Estonia or, to be more precise, city of Tartu, is one of my favorite destinations. This spring was no exception and I've spent last week living and studying in this amazing place.

Close Horizons

Exploring your close surroundings can be so much fun! This weekend I finally got to visit one of the greatest hill-forts around Vilnius!

Weekend Runaway: Kernavė

Escaping city during weekends is now a thing that I'm really looking forward to while going on with my daily duties. This Saturday my husband and I went to one of our favorite places in Lithuania - Kernavė.

Bye-bye April!

Well this April was one tough month! Full of various events, intense studying, and trying to have some quiet time for myself (not happening, apparently), these past 30 days were like a crazy roller coaster!

花見. 2018 Edition

Spring has finally arrived and there is no better way celebrating it than taking an example from Japanese people and admiring blooming sakura trees. Chiune Sugihara Sakura Park  is the "it" spot in Vilnius when these trees start to blossom and for many years now I try not to miss it!

Weekend Getaway. Astravas Manor

When days are getting warmer and nature is finally waking up from its long slumber, it's the perfect time for short trips! This weekend I decided that it's about time that I revisited one of the places that I remember from my childhood - Astravas Manor in Biržai.

Vilnius Whisky Festival

One of my (many) interests is... whisky. I have been interested in this particular drink since my trip to Scotland (naturally) in 2014, and while trying to get to know this intricate liquor better, I discovered Vilnius Whisky Festival, the biggest event for whisky lovers in the Baltic counties.

Sigita Petrunina | Ten kur namai. Gyvenk kaip patinka

Pavasariniam tvarkymosi įkarščiui pamažu užvaldant mano mintis, įkvėpimo naujoms idėjoms ieškau tiek Pinterest'e, tiek savo mėgstamiausiame Country Living žurnale, tiek ir knygose apie interjerą. Viena iš jų - neseniai pasirodžiusi tinklaraštininkės Sigitos Petruninos (Ten kur namai) knyga Gyvenk kaip patinka. Kadangi knygos pavadinimas skamba kaip gyvenimo motto, susidomėjau - kaip tai galima atspindėti interjere? Tad ketvirtadienio rytą paskyriau tam išsiaiškinti.

March: Week 3 Favorite(s)

 Spring is coming (although, technically it is spring already, but you know what I mean), so I decided to try some new products that would help me to hide my winter-outworn skin. Vitamin D aside, I thought about getting myself something that would help me look instantly refreshed. With this thought in mind I went to "The Body Shop", to see what they have to offer.

The Tulip Fever

When all of a sudden you start seeing tiny pop-up stalls with tulips on each corner of the city, it can mean only one thing - International Women's Day is coming. Although on this day we are supposed to commemorate the movement for women's rights, it basically turned out to be the day when you just get a flower (preferably, a tulip) for being a woman. Even though the gesture itself is nice and flattering (I do love getting flowers as a gift!), but I think that we miss the whole point of this particular occasion. That's why today I want to talk about my personal role models, women, who inspire me to be myself and to pursue my goals.

Vilnius Book Fair 2018: Tired and Happy

Love it or hate it, but Vilnius Book Fair is definitely one of the most important events here in Lithuania. Four days of events, meetings with writers, illustrators, and publishers, and, most of all, tons and tons of books! For the second year in a row I stood on the opposite side of a counter and exchanged my studies and work for this incredible experience!

February: Week 4 Favorite

Vilniaus knygų mugė startavo vakar, o aš vis dar negaliu atsigauti, koks neįtikėtinai nuostabus yra šių metų LLTI paskelbtas kūrybiškiausių knygų 12-ukas!

#V16

100 years ago on February 16th Lithuania restored its independence, so this whole weekend was dedicated to this very special occasion! Since not everyday you get to mark a centenary, it has to be special, something to remember when the years go by. So me and my friends went on a trip, visiting places that played a role in (or after) this important event.

February: Week 2 Favorite

This week's highlight, without a doubt, is the show by "alt-J", a British band who finished their "Relaxer" tour here, in Vilnius.

Rome's Diary: Trajan's Market and Forum (Day 1)

Visiting Italy or Rome, to be more precise, was an old dream of mine. One morning, when Vilnius was covered in snow and preparing for a week of low temperatures, me and my husband stepped off the plane in Fiumicino Airport, prepared to enjoy our stay in Italy as much as possible.

February: Week 1 Favorite

It's sad, but true that Lithuanian cultural press (and culture in general) is marginalized and if we could imagine our country as a family, then cultural press would have a role of a step-daughter.

Rome Teaser

Going to Rome was pretty old dream of mine and just last week it got fulfilled! I am still not quite waken up from this wonderful trip, so bear with me while I am editing all those photos taken in this magnificent city!

My Blog Turns 2!

Two years ago, on this very same day, I decided to launch "Things I Like" blog. Let's celebrate this special occasion together!
