DAY 5 IGNALINA'S REGION REDUCED

Phew! It’s been a long time since I don’t write about my聽Eurotrip聽and I’m sorry about that. I just had so many other things to do and forgot a bit about telling that story.

Anyways, if you don’t remember what we did on the previous day,聽check it up here. Done? Alright, let’s continue with the story.

If there’s one thing that pops into my mind when someone says聽Lithuania聽it’s the聽green聽colour.The quantity of woods that you can find in that country per total surface it’s incredible!! I read somewhere that the聽30%聽of the total area is forest.

That day we spent visiting one beautiful national park, consideredAukstaitijos_nacionalinis_parkas to be the oldest one in the country the聽Auk拧taitija National Park.聽That wasn’t the first time that I was in that place, because many weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to a festival of聽electro-minimal-weird music.The聽S弄PYN臇S music festival.聽This park has an area of聽405.70 km虏 and the nearest city to it is聽Ignalina.聽Yey!!

Monika took me to one special place, called聽Ladakalnis聽where you are supposed to carry a stone from the bottom of the hill to the top. Then you leave it next to a tree and make a wish. The bigger the stone the bigger the chances you get for the wish to become true. Check, by the way, the pictures that I took in that area of聽Lithuania.

Ladakalnisis a 175m height hill from which you can see聽6 different lakes.聽A really nice (according to how the lithuanians call it)聽芦mountain禄聽to chill, take some pictures and enjoy the sightseeing.

Once that we were back on our steps, there was another small village that we had to visit,聽Ginu膷iai, famous for its 19th century mill and located in the shore of one of the lakes that you can see from Ladakalnis,聽the聽Linkmenaslake. The population of that place is considered to be around 70 people. Not thousand no, just 70.

Yeah, if all those names sound like a tongue twister for you, try to imagine how were my firsts months here. One day I will probably tell you some funny anecdotes about my first year in Lithuania.

Then after having this聽芦safari禄through the forests and lakes, we went back to聽Ignalina,聽where we would spend our last night before going back to聽Kaunas聽and then to…聽Barcelona!
