Lithuania Road Trip!

My husband, a friend and I went on a road trip to Augustow (Poland), Vilnius and Kaunas (Lithuania) on May 25-29, 2017.  Here’s my version of the trip!

~Enjoy

Saw some happy cows on the way out of of town 🙂

Minion road trip!

Beautiful rapeseed fields

I like this bridge

Haha I had to take a picture of construction

We got some amazing food at a stop.

More happy cows!

Silos!

This is actually a bridge for deer, if you look closely it’s fully fenced so the animals can cross without getting scared of the road.  Pretty cool!

That deer is amazing

I just couldn’t get over how many awe-inspiring buildings there were

Annnd we went to a whiskey bar

On the way home, the closed bakery looks delicious

Back at 7 Fridays (where we slept above a bar)

Went to an adorable cottage-like restaurant

We had to kill half an hour before it opened and just walked the block

Bicycle woooo

How rustic

The tiniest coffee!

Finally got into the restaurant and the indoor decor was full of life

Gourmet!

Back to walking the town again

Stopped by for some georgian cheese bread.  So good

What an interesting mural

I love robin’s egg blue and burnt orange

Some more street vendors

I think this was the gate to the gods or something? I know, great memory

Sooo many churches

The three crosses

I like this window

Hiked up the cobblestone to get to this castle on a hill

With the Lithuanian flag flying high.  Cost money to go in so we were cheap and didn’t go.

The city views are breathtaking

Yet another church.  Isn’t that long nose super creepy

Dat organ

Parents taking baby photos (I assume this is a christening?)

Ah we remembered there was a festival!

We bought bottles (1L) of delicious honey beer for 3 euros

Cookies shaped like mushrooms.

Yesss, I got one of these!  I think $14.  I absolutely love it.

Arrived at our hotel in Kaunas!

This is the main strip you can walk and shop on

 

First stop, chocolate!  Ali chocolates.  I got some pistachio flavor

Square chocolates

A traditional dress parade

Went to a Lithuanian-Mexican cuisine restaurant.  The owner is amazing and truly loves his restaurant.

Tequila sunrise, margaritas and water!

Oo and legitimate pink tequila.  The owner said it is naturally pink because of certain mosquitos.

After that meal, we took a long way home

Another beautiful river!

 

A unique flower arrangement

On our last morning, a military band helped us get ready.  They played the same chorus about every 2 minutes.

Annnd finally, the view from our balcony 🙂

This road trip was great, I can’t wait to do another one!
