Since I wrote about our 2018 travels outside of Romania, it seemed legit to offer Romania its 15 minutes of fame and have a summary of the places we checked out in the country last year. We’re mostly traveling around the country during the weekend, except for a more extended seaside trip and a 4 – 5 days hiking trip.
-21°C today, a very cold January day that keeps me from wanting to go out too much and got me thinking about summer and warm days again. A perfect opportunity to have a look at what new places we discovered last year. So for all of you out there in search of some vacation plans, here’s a list of our 2018 destinations in Europe.
As we spent 9 days in Lithuania, wondering around the country, we did offer a bit of our daily time to check out places to taste some of this country’s cuisine. We did come back with a few kilos extra, mainly because the traditional dishes are quite heavy, with a mixture of potatoes, meat and pastry and not too many fresh veggies. But still, it’s worth digging into what this country has to offer in terms of gastronomy.
Our 5th day in Lithuania was basically about driving back from the Baltic Sea to Vilnius, as our trip was approaching its end and we had to get closer to the airport. As we had quite a long way to go, we planned a few stops on the way as to make the day more […]
This day was for sure one of the highlights of our Lithuanian road trip. Lots of outdoor, sun, nature, wild life, a blend that we’re always looking for.
Our second day of visiting Lithuania started after the electronic music festival we attended. As we were still recovering a bit, it was a short day, with just a few stops. Also the weather was not the ideal one, with clouds and a bit of rain, considering that what we had planned for this day was to stay mostly outdoor.
If you’re looking for a destination with lots of outdoors, with green forests and lakes all around, with small and airy villages and not so crowded cities, the Baltic countries might suite you just right. As right as it suited us the 6 days we spent driving and camping around Lithuania, the Baltic country that opened our appetite for more.
We knew about Battir that it’s and UNESCO World Heritage Site and that’s why we asked Michael, our guide in Palestine, to drive us there and show us around the village. What we didn’t know is that this village has such a strong story behind and so many great people working hard to change mentalities and show Battir’s true value.
