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!
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!
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!
Cobra candle holder
Orchid at our bed and breakfast in Augustow.
Swans on the river!
This one wanted bread!
It looked like a sign 😀
I love this flower popping out of the rusty fence
Some of these buildings look like paintings
Beautiful church (first of many!)
I love the atmosphere of this town
This building had scales…………awesome!!!

Now we’re in Vilnius!!!
Oh just the beginning…
wow the view from our room above the bar
The architecture is beautiful, and there’s so much graffiti everywhere
Cute slipper holder
Having our first beers and fried bread
Stopping by Theo Bromine chocolate shop
mmmmm, except the gifts I bought melted in the car…..
It doesn’t look real
Churches are everywhere and amazingly intricate
Look at that!
Even the door knob is ornate (leaving the tourist center)
Stopped by a cute amber shop
Tiny little amber trees and clay houses. So cute!
I need to look up more words for “cute!!!”……………….
Solemn looking teddy
These wonderful quirky felt hats
Oh man if I ever wanted to scare someone…
Vendor who was selling historical pieces (stamps, coins, medals, photos)
It looked so lonely
Scarf lady – love the colors

Stopping to try a flight of Lithuanian beers
John modeling 😛
Me trying a heffeweisen (maybe?)
The texture of these chairs
Closer to the center of Vilnius
Front angle of a church
Black and gold clock tower
Columns of the church draping the clock tower
What’s he looking at so intently?? A bird… A…
This clock tower was just so much fun to photograph
This restaurant was pretty funny – incorporated the flying spaghetti monster. Ramen was meh
Beautiful buildings + graffiti = Vilnius
Looks like some political building
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
The tiniest coffee!
Finally got into the restaurant and the indoor decor was full of life
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
Me and boo!
Stopped by a local fresh market
I likes bikes
I could make a magazine out of these photos
Everything has so much character
Stopped by Theo Bromine chocolate shop again
John in front of some quirky wall
mo’ minions mo’ problems
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
Parents taking baby photos (I assume this is a christening?)
Ah we remembered there was a festival!
Traditional Lithuanian dress
Looks like brothers. There was a live band playing the whole time. It was great!
This guy is awesome
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.
I wanted one of these so bad, but I just took a photo instead
Money on the wall
Ate here, got so much food that I didn’t even eat my my entree (potato pancakes)
Looks like a mural from the 50s
More tasty dessert mushrooms
We stopped at this cafe for breakfast before leaving Vilnius
Ahh blurry Kaunas
Stopped at a WWII memorial/museum
These paintings have so much pain
Such a distressed sculpture
What an interesting monogram
Rusting pocket knife
Tiny model of men working
Rusty old coins
What a classic looking pocket watch
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
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!
