Couchsurfing in Vilnius

posted in: St. Petersburg 2014 | 0


Egle invited us to stay in her mother’s house for 9 days. Her mother and brother are travelling. How cool is this!?

She stayed with a friend from Lithuania in our home earlier. Couchsurfing works great!


He was awaited!

With empty bottles of Vodka and other stuff floating.

Within 5 minutes, HE solved the problem.



Alarm at the Russian border

When the alarm on the Russian side went off, most Russian officials ran and we had to get back into the car.

The entire procedureto cross the border took 3 hours because the Lithuanians are so slow. There were 2 lanes open – one for EU passports and the other for non-EU – each taking 6 cars. So blocks of 6 were called – every 20-40 minutes.

Rotten Russia

Turning around from the proud tanks, here is where the money should have gone.

Russia is incredibly rotten. There is not a single place which shows that the people are caring.

No changes compared to my last visit in 1998.

Jantarnij Kombinat

Not sure whether the historic look was deliberately chosen. A nice, even more historical wall painting shows “Dresdner Bank” and other German buildings right next to the Kombinat.
