5 tips to planning your perfect holiday
A) Use the help of aggregator sites such as skyscanner for airlines and Trivago for hotels but always make your purchases from the airline / hotel itself because sometimes going through a 3rd party site causes problems like bookings being lost
B) Get a translator app if you're going to a foreign country. The kind that helps you type in your chosen language and is translated in written foreign language or spoken foreign language for locals in that country to understand and help you. This is because not every country speak English as a native language esp Korea. So you're gonna have to get creative
C) Get cost savings by using sites like Klook which is famous for asian countries deals and discounts. I got my Korea Rail pass, portable wifi and sim card as well as theme park tickets to Lotte World on Klook and I saved quite a bit vs buying it on the spot
D) Use tools like google streetview to help you gauge the neighbourhood and surrounding area of a particular place you're interested in. This will help you have an idea if you like the neighbourhood before you decide to book it / is it safe for a solo traveller / too many slopes for older travellers or people with bad knees.
E) Research, Research and Research
Its the only full proof method to a well planned trip without any unplanned surprises. This also helps you maximise your number of days at that particular location and making sure you visit everything that tickles your fancy without any unforeseen circumstances
I love planning full-proof trips and I spend months planning them. If you would like any advise or help planning your trips for you, happy to do so.

Why paddle from Vilnius to Nida?
It took 6 nights to get from Capital of Lithuania to one of the most beautiful parts of Lithuania - Nida.
Two good buddies are sitting in a party and discussing best trips of all time. Suddenly one of them offers to go kayaking. They both hype up and decide that half a year from now, they will go kayaking. But where? Of course they are too ambitious to go swim in boring lakes. They decide that paddling to Nida would be an awesome idea.
Week before the trip:
“Haha, are we seriously going to the trip?”
“Of course! No more questions.”
That’s it. Thats the only single conversation before starting to pack all the gear and making sure all of the documents are checked.
Most painful experience:
Well. It rained a lot one day. I mean hell of a lot. All of the clothes were soaked, the sleeping bag contained two glasses of cold water which even made it better.:)
We had to sleep in soaked hammocks, obviously, it’s not the best idea. From 6 hours of sleep I only remember sleeping 30 minutes. That’s it. It was such a terrifying experience, I swear I thought, that I might get hypothermia. However, we survived the night and continued our journey.
Well, hearing about the horrible night you might think that I became grateful for my warm sheets back in Vilnius. Yes, for a fact, I did, but surely that wasn’t the best lesson. While having to sit in the same kayak for a week with my friend, I spent a lot of time thinking and dreaming, which lead me to this conclusion - SOMETIMES you need to shut-up and be quiet. For real. Don’t bother talking and just enjoy the silence. That’s what i still regularly do in Vilnius - between work and sleep I spend some time in quiet. Just thinking and dreaming.
However, we all learn different things, so if you want to hear more about my trips - hit me up! Would love to share more stories❤️
Spontanious trips = quality experience.
Couple weeks ago, on tuesday, me and my bestfriend decided to pack our stuff and meet at the bus station in Vilnius. From there, we took the first that arrived to the station, as we later found out - it was heading towards Trakai.
We drove for about 50km and decided to jump out in a small village - Onuškis. While hiking around the beautiful forests, I decided to start calling and inviting my friends to camp overnight. After almost 20 calls I gave up. However, about an hour later i posted to my Instagram “hey if you want to have a nice evening in the woods- join us”
About 10 minutes later we already have found +5 people to join our trip. From those 5 people I only personaly knew only one.
But guess what, 3 hours later, they arrived at Onuškis. We hiked back to the camp, stayed up late swaping stories and singing songs while watching the campfire.
It was one of the most calming moments in my life. Would definetely recommend to go and camp in the nature. Lithuania for sure is such a beautiful country!
