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.

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.

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.
