Beginning of summer, we visited some friends who moved to Germany and spent a couple of days in their small Northern town. We didn’t expect much of the trip when we planned it, except for spending some time together with them and catching up. But we got a bit more, very much worth to be mentioned here – a lovely small town, good weather and lots of green areas to be explored, to relax and enjoy the quiet and easy pace around.
Our third day of the road trip in Lithuania had as a final destination the Baltic Sea. We were hoping to have a good weather and do some swimming and relax on the beach, but we had a rather cranky day, with clouds, a bit of rain on the way and some quite heavy wind when we finally got to Palanga in the afternoon.
