I'm Back! + Day1 + Day2

I'm back from my trip to Italy. Italy!!! I still can't believe that just a few days ago I was there. In freaking Italy. Wow!... Okay, I need to stop being so overly excited... I came back to Lithuania yesterday at night and in the morning I had to celebrate easter with my family so I didn't have the time to sort all of those photos straight away but I sort of started sorting them now and I'm ready to share the first two days of my trip. 
We spent the whole first day crossing Poland and a bit of Czech Republic. We only stopped for short bathroom or lunch breaks. So I didn't make a lot of photos, cause we didn't see anything but the road. In the evening we arrived to a nice hotel called "myslivna" near Bruno city in Czech Republic. When we left Lithuania the trees still didn't have any leaves. But in Bruno all the trees were already shinning green. It was amazing to see so much green things around us. And the hotel had a great view.
Almost the whole second day was also spent riding in our  bus except we stopped in Vienna, Austria to check out Schönbrunn's palace. And after that we rode, rode, rode in our bus all the way to Italy. We arrived to a little coast town called Lido di Jesolo where our italian hotel was and the big travelling through Europe was over. We were already in Italy!
My bags all packed
Photographing polish grass with little flowers in it while on our bathroom break. Spring came to Poland faster than to Lithuania.
Our amazing bus with our travel agency's name on it.
It's the first time I ever seen a mountain in my life. Of course I saw a lot of pictures of mountains but it's so different when you see it in real life.
My czech hotel room and it's window's view to the forest.
Blossoms. When we left Lithuania there were still no blossoms here, but now blossoms are here everywhere too.
Our hotel view.
Vienna. Near the imperial palace.
Vienna's gardens.
In the Vienna's gardens there are a lot of little squirrels who are not affraid to take peanuts from your hands. They are adorable.
Austrian alpes
Italy! Italian alpes.
Lido di Jesolo. The main street near which our hotel was.
Next post will be about going to Venice. Venice!!!... Ahhh, I need to stop being SO excited...
With lots of love,

LT-Streets

 Tonight is the night I leave to Italy! Yaaayyy! But before I go, I wanted to share this awesome new website called LT-STREETS.COM . One of my rollerblading friends needed to come up with something for his college degree in photography and he came up with this! It's a website about Lithuania's BMX'ers', dancers' and rollerbladers' styles. I'm really in love with the idea. And yesterday he caught me with his photocamera and tadaah I'm on his website. Rollerblader girl is not actually my everyday style, I have a few different styles that serve the occasions: the academic style for university, girly style for hanging out in the city, tomboy style for adventures in the wild and the rollerblader girl for rollerblading of course! This website is quite new still but I think it may become something more. If you're interested to see the post about me, here it is.
Have a great weekend!
See you in a week.
Lots of love, Kamilė

Three Things


The first thing is reflected in the pictures: spring is definitely here! These photos are from the last two weekends.  A little while back there were not so many little green leaves, but yesterday night it rained a lot and now there's little green leaves everywhere! And the little flowers called hepaticas rule the forests again. Now I only need to wait for the lilacs to flower and I'll be in full spring mode.
The second thing is that this week is the last one before the spring break. I don't think I'm already exhausted from studying but everyone could use breaks once in a while.
And the third thing which is definetely the best of all three is that.... I'm going to Italy! When my mom bought the tickets for this trip at first I didn't feel anything, I guess I just couldn't believe it - it just has been a dream for so long that it became something unachievable in my head. But now it sunk in a bit and I just can't stay in one place. The feeling's extatic! And the best part about it is that I'm leaving in 4 days! I promise to bring back a lot photos and good stories and share it all here. 
Wish me good weather!
Love, Kamilė

Home is whenever I'm with you



There are those moments. The ones that make you stop for a minute and appreciate them. The ones that can make up for a louzy day or even a louzy week. The ones that you want to remmember for a long time. These moments are so short and blurry that you can't sometimes even remmember what day or month it was but you can easily tell what pants you were wearing, how light that fell through the window looked, the feeling how your hair brushed your cheek when you were laughting your heart out, what song was playing and how that pancake, that you were eating at the moment, tasted. These moments pop out of nowhere but when they come you suddenly feel so extatic and happy that can not help but smile at the beauty of it. 
 Lately I've been having more of these moment. Maybe it has something with me trying to appreciate everything that I have more, maybe it's just spirng making me happier, but it doesn't matter at all why they come, it matters that they do. Yesterday we had a break between some lectures and went home to  make pancakes and some hot coco. The idea of it is not special at all. But being with these people, talking to them, laughing with them, feeling their love and appreciation and loving and appreciating them is more than special. When I am with them, I feel that I am where I belong. They say that home is where the heart is, so it this case - they are my home.

Let's go to the fair!

This weekend in Vilnius was all about anual Kaziukas' fair - it's an old lithuanian tradition. Usually the weather is really rainy on the days of the fair, but this time it was extraordinary beautiful and sunny! Yesterday I went with my dad and later with my friends and today I went again with my mom. The fair was nice as always, but I have never seen so many people here, it was insane - I felt like in a rock'n'roll concert with all these people. Also yesterday I bought a lot of traditional snacks like mushrooms made of dough, ginger-bread men and got a food poisoning so today I was more careful with the stuff that I bought and ate there.

One thing I really liked was that I bought my first dream catcher! Yeah, I know I should be ashamed for calling my blog 'the dream carcher' and not actually having a real dream catcher, but I just never found one that fit me. Until today! I always wanted one and here it is in the first picture. I can't be happier about it! Now I'm a real dream catcher!


Oh, and I almost forgot - I've got these beautiful tulips for the international 'woman's day'. I think they are sooo pretty! I'm kinda obsessed with anything pink and flowers are no exception!
Love, Kamilė

Life lately in #instagrams

1. Jogging in the park every weekend 2. Making green smothies every morning
3. Enjoying our city parks again, after not visiting them the whole winter 
4.  Reading myself to bed every night. It's nice to get lost in a book
5. Well, those smothies are so awesome that they deserve even more instagrams! 
6. The freshmen that I tutor at my Uni gave me a late birthday gift. This cup is 
more than awesome 'cause I love chemistry! (the symbol is caffeine)
7. Appreciating how nice my city looks at night 8.Isn't it just beautiful?
9. Blueberry cupcakes! I'm surely in the baking mood these days
10.  The city doesn't look too bad during day time either, doesn't it?

Have a nice weekend!
