‘Lithuanian Break’ story will be posted in 2 separate posts, as there is so much to share about. Welcome to the part 1 – Mini Lithuanian Break: Arriving & Magnus Hotel in Kaunas. There will be a video added at part 2, so stay tuned! 🙂
Our mini Lithuanian break was lovely, just as we hoped! It went so fast, though, that it feels like it was never here. Oh well, 4 days only, we knew that was gonna go as a blink of an eye.
Packing was the most unpleasant part of it. It took me nearly the whole day to pack mine, Harry’s and Daniella’s stuff! I was so happy when it was finally over!
So at 3.30am on Wednesday, Edward, Harry, Daniella, I + my cousin with his family were all off to Liverpool airport to catch our 7am flight to Vilnius. Luka, unfortunately, couldn’t go, as she had school to go to. But she actually wasn’t too sad, she had already been to Lithuania and also Tenerife this year, so this girl is travelling more often than all of us do!
There is one thing you probably didn’t know about me- I have a pretty big fear of flying. I am normally shaking with the smallest of turbulence. Even the thought of it makes me nervous! But this time, I took some calming drops with me, that Edward used to get his emotions in place before his driving exam, more than a year ago. I took a few drops more than they advise on the bottle and it really did help!
The whole journey went really well. Harry slept for almost half of the flight (it takes 2.5 hours to get to Lithuania) and Daniella was playing with her paper dollies- dressing them in their sticker dresses or getting crazy (and making a lot of noise on the airplane) with her daddy.
We landed in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius at around 11am (2 hours’ time difference) and then took a huge 2 deck train to Kaunas, second biggest city in Lithuania (which is actually not at all big), where we had Magnus hotel booked for our stay.
