Sightseeing: Birštonas city, Lithuania

Sightseeing

This past weekend, I have visited my aunt who lives in Birštonas – a small resort type city in the southern part of Lithuania. This visit gave me an idea to start new series of post called: Sightseeing. I will try to tell you about places I have seen and have visited across Lithuania as well as the rest of the world.
So without further ado, let’s begin.
Birštonas was first mentioned in 1382. It got its resort status in 1842. Even knights, lords and ladies liked to relax here during 14th-18th centuries. Down bellow you will find photos of town’s central park. Old pine trees grow there and make this park a beautiful spot to relax, walk around or do sports. There are a few playgrounds for kids, outdoor exercise equipment, basketball court, and skateboarding ramp, summer stage for live performances, table tennis court and golf court.
If you don’t like walking under the trees, you are welcomed to enjoy a walk or a bicycle ride by the river Nemunas. The view is astonishing. This relaxed environment helps people to recover from stress, depression or illness. Because of this, Birštonas has many sanatoriums and spas. People come from all over the world to recover from serious illness or injuries. The area is also famous for its mineral water wells.
Whether you choose to read a book by the river or walk around the park, while breathing fresh air and viewing local artists’ sculptures, you will definitely enjoy your time in Birštonas. If nature is not your thing, you are welcomed to walk around Birštonas city, see old neo gothic churches and rare buildings or even visit a town’s museum.
I really enjoyed my walk around Birštonas, it helped to clear my mind after a hard school week. By the time our walk was coming to an end it started to rain and the wind picked up, so we had to run to my aunt’s place. Here, while snacking on oatmeal raisin cookies and tiramisu cake accompanied with sweet lemon tea, we chatted about life and plans for future.
Hope you have a great week and I will see you later.

Easter + decorations and DIY ideas!!

Uncategorized

Good afternoon everybody!

   First and foremost I would like to congratulate all of you on this beautiful occasion – Easter. No matter whether you are religious or not, this is a beautiful, spring-time family celebration. I hope that all of you have an awesome day and the pleasant rest of spring 🙂
   The weather in Lithuania is amazing. It’s like 20C or 68F outside, the sky is clear with a few puffy white clouds. However, the wind is pretty strong, but it is not that cold.
I spent my Easter at my aunt’s house. All of my nearest and dearest family members came here; we shared a nice Sunday lunch, exchanged small gifts and had some quality time with each other. I was so excited to see my little cousin – he is almost 5 months old and just too cute.
My aunt got me this really lovely gift from Easter Bunny (This is tradition in our family). I got CACHET dark chocolate bar with lemon and black pepper flavoring. I love milk chocolate, but sometimes I like to snack on something stronger, that has a rich and interesting taste. Lemon and black pepper in my opinion – is a great, kind of spicy combination that compliments dark chocolate so well. She also got me two of Manhattan Lotus Effect long-lasting nail polishes in this cute purple box with a bow tie that has polka dots on it. One of the polishes is this grey-ish/blue-ish color that has some dark undertones. I think it is going to look amazing with more metallic, dark outfits. Another color is really spring like – light pink with a slight touch of cream. The grey one is 33G, and pink one – 55K.
Bellow I also added couple of photos from our Easter table, a picture of a home decoration and a DIY collage on how to color eggs while using onion shells. All of the eggs are different, unique and most importantly – natural, because they are made while using organic products – onions – and just a tiny pinch of chemical egg paint. Enjoy 🙂
