First solo trip errbody. This weekend I am traveling to the beautiful lands of Latvia and Lithuania. These bordering Baltic states sit to the West part of Russia and are incredibly cheap to get to.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start with Wednesday morning. I got all set to leave and took time debating whether or not to bring my fanny pack. It was actually a big question for me as with it, I gain a more secure and hands-free purse, but at the cost of labeling myself a tourist. Needless to say, the fanny pack came with:
I made my way downtown to grab a cinnamon roll from Sankt Peders (Saint Peter’s) Cafe. I got the recommendation from a friend who said they only make them on Wednesdays. Dang, that puppy was soft and chewy and good. 10/10 would make the stop if you’re in the area.Cinnamon roll in tow, I made my way to the airport. I think I mentioned last time how far back the cheap airlines go? Well this post I’m including a snap shot for reference. Those little black dots at the end are people. It’s a workout, I’m telling you.
More views of my walk around Kaunas:
For dinner I tried a contemporary Lithuania restaurant called Vista Puode. It was hip and delicious and cheap! I got a lemonade, a hot cocoa, and my entree for 11 euros! What?! That’s the price of a piece of pizza in Copenhagen.
As i had been traveling throughout the day, I kept seeing a bunch of women with these flowers in their hands. I was a bit confused if this was a tradition or if they just always had flowers, but I came to find out that it was all due to International Women’s day.
A bunch of vendors set up stands where you could purchase tulips for the women you cared about. I received a sweet surprise at the end of the meal when my waiter brought me this lovely flower.
More adventures to come, God Bless yall.
