Guess who’s back, back again. Leta’s back, tell a friend! Was is too cringe worthy? Yeah, I think so too…
BUT I’M BACK! Yes, it was only a week and a half but it felt like way longer for me since I was so used to getting up, writing posts and engaging in the blogosphere every single day. So, it was super weird for me to get up and do nothing blogging related. No posts that I need to schedule. No tweets I need to write. A big zero. Well, except for my inbox which is always full and needy…
Anyways, I hope you didn’t miss me too much and had been doing alright. I had an incredible time relaxing and travelling quite a bit. So today I am going to share only about my trip to the seaside and I will leave exciting Poland road trip for the next post because I’m evil like that. Please, don’t hate me.
On the 16th of June, I and two of my best friends packed our bags and went on a short trip to the seaside of Lithuania. We went to the town that is oh so popular among tourists – Palanga. Now I must admit that I am not a fan of this town or should I say resort. It’s not that it’s not nice or beautiful. It’s just the fact that it is considered a resort makes everything so unpleasant for me. There are a hell lot of tourists during summer and the prices are higher than the Empire State building. But it’s a beautiful coast with a beautiful bridge and a beautiful scenery. So, I caved in and we drove to Palanga.
We stayed there only for two days, so that means one night. We booked a little room for three for 23 euros and hoped for the best. The room was quite nice, the only downside of it was that the sink’s pipe didn’t work and we had to use a shower to wash our hands and all that jazz. The owners of that little guest house were super friendly and everything would have been fantastic if not the fact that the public kitchen didn’t have a stove. We brought dumplings with us and we weren’t able to cook them since cooking dumplings in an electric kettle or in a microwave isn’t an option.
Now to the fun part! One of my friends decided to make a bet with her other friend that she will go swimming in the sea in the sunrise. Yep, she went for it. And we went down with her too. I freaking went for a swim in the sea at 5 a.m! Can you believe it? Because I still can’t. At least, she will get a kebab.
The weather wasn’t so kind to us. Fist day was quite a nice one, we even managed to sit in dunes and enjoy the sun. But the next day was a total crap. It was raining all morning and all day! Fun fact: when we went swimming in the morning, the weather was incredible! The sky was clear, the sun was out. But when we got back to our room, took a nap and woke up at 10-ish a.m., it was raining cats and dogs. Plus the forecast said that it will be a storm later in the evening, so we chickened out and went home a bit earlier than planned. Ain’t nobody want to die in the middle of the road!
Overall, I had an amazing time. We had lots of fun, took lots of photos, they found out more about my blogging life. Yeah, now my two best friends know it and it does feel kind of weird. I mean, I’ve been blogging for over the year! I kept it a secret for over the year! And now they know and I feel like my family suspects something as well. But everything comes at a time…
I apologise if you are kind of bored with this post because all I’ve been doing is rambling on and on. It is so unusual in my blog and I swear I’ll be back with my weekly finds and normal, weird, positivity filled posts in the next one. For now, I will leave you with photos I took while in Palanga. Hope you will enjoy. Also, let me know what you have been up to while I was gone. I’d love to know 🙂
What have you been up to?
Have you visited the seaside this summer?
