If you are expecting to see some sightseeing photos from our Mini Break in Lithuania, you are looking at the wrong post. 🙂 This time, we only stayed there for the few days and, as you might know, the main reason for the whole trip was my Grandma’s birthday. Therefore, 95% of our time there we spent with my family and the other 5% with friends.
Let’s talk photos today. A picture below was taken on our very first day of our Lithuanian break, soon after we arrived to my Grandma’s house. Edward’s face says it all – it’s been a long day. Our flight was at around 6.30am, therefore we were all up since 2.30am.
This terrace of my Grandmother holds so many memories. My sisters and I used to always play there as kids. However, the windows were not always there. it used to be as a huge balcony before. I remember us, kids, sitting there, on the edge of the balcony with our legs hanging out. The thought of it terrifies me now! It’s on the second floor, I can’t even think of what could have happened if we slipped or something!
Next photo below is from one of our many lunches out. I really miss the food from Lithuania (not necessarily Lithuanian food, but made by Lithuanians). For example, pizzas are somewhat different there and I love them so much! Edward enjoys it a lot too. I am very glad he does. 🙂
Below- Edward and Daniella at the main shopping centre named Akropolis in Kaunas city. We always go there when we are visiting Lithuania. There is everything in one place – lots of clothes and shoe stores, cinema, restaurants and cafes, bowling, ice ring, food store, pharmacy and loads more. It’s kind of Lithuanian Westfield, ha ha. 🙂
Another photo- Daniella is having fun at the children’s play area in the same Akropolis shopping centre. Children from 4 years old onwards can stay (for a small fee) and play there while their parents are shopping in the meanwhile. Qualified childminders are looking after them, so mummies and Daddies have nothing to worry about, just relax and shop. It’s extremely handy for parents and kids love that place- Daniella didn’t want to leave!
We visited my friend Kristina and her family. It was a while since I saw her last. It was so great catching up! I am now hoping they will be visiting us soon. So many memories with that girl!!!
My lovely Grandma’s birthday celebrations took place in Monte Pacis restaurant in Kaunas city. We went for a 6-course tasting menu and it was so lovely. We really had a great time with family and my Grandmother was delighted to have us all around.
Sooner that we realised, our mini break in Lithuania was over… We left Lithuania a little sad as it all gone so fast. But in the mean time we were excited, as we will probably be visiting again this summer. This time for a little bit longer.
