Scuba diving at Blue Lagoon.

    Dear readers, have you really thought that the first article about sunny Malta was the main experience i really wanted to tell you ? My second part  is full of activities,funny and of course delicious  moments of incredible  August week !

 So let’s begin IMG_9630

SCUBA DIVING

One of the best experiences of my life so far!.So we went all along the coast  and decided to  scuba dive which was the one big thing we wanted to do while staying in Malta. So we looked around and found some cozy place to start learning how to diving -Exiles bay.At the next day morning we took another bus and went to Comino island Blue lagoon…

BLUE LAGOON

First impression-terrible,offule ,discussing ..Too crowded, I was terrified about the idea that everyone was pissing in that water ..I felt like i wasted all day …But my friend kicked in my ass and pushed into a salty water and we plunged over the huge cliffs and finally we been alone among the sea..I even saw a jellyfish ! So after a long day there I think this is a very nice place to visit, if you’re properly informed.

IMG_9471IMG_9470

Situated between Malta and Gozo, the smaller island of Comino is a paradise for snorkelers, divers, windsurfers and ramblers.Only 3.5 square kilometers, Comino is car-free and apart from one hotel, is virtually uninhabited.The island’s main attraction is the Blue Lagoon. In summer, this sheltered inlet of shimmering aquamarine water over white sand is very popular with day-trippers.Comino is also worth a visit in winter, and is ideal for walkers and photographers. With no urban areas or cars on the island, one can easily smell the scent of wild thyme and other herbs.

IMG_9703IMG_9609IMG_9603IMG_9599

So, yes, it’s a beautiful lagoon, clearest waters ever, but there is no much activity going on. I understand many people are some what disappointed, but keep in mind that it’s the smallest of the Maltese Islands and it’s mostly rocky, so not much to do….

With the passion of traveling ……..

First story of Malta.Valletta

 As the august days was going by and summer weather was turning to autumn cold,I patently was waiting for my secret vacation for somewhere new,somewhere where i never been and always wanted to try,something special and on the other case familiar to me. And finally the awaited day has came.. I’m counting the finale second in my work and babmabama…I’m driving home,packing my luggages and waiting for car to take me to Kaunas airport.I’m taking an alleviator,buying some whisky (because for me plain trip it’s not very easy way to travel) after it I’m drinking a few glasses of champagne ( to make my trip less inconveniant :))..I passed through check-in and now taking a stares to sale and looking in all those flights and i really still don’t  have any idea where we’re going.. after an hour when all passengers where in theyr planes and we still were sitting I started to be nervous and asking: ,,it’s a joke”, ,,it’s not very funny ,what are you thinking about this”,,,you wasted my time…” after this monolog he took my hand and we ran so fast to our plane! Which was directed toooo… MALTA! And at that moment when I noticed it the first thing I thought about was you!MY lovely partner KAMILE :)

image-3

             Sorry for my bland monolog and let’s start our trip!

Warm weather,summer breeze and cooked octopus smell passed us when the plane  finally landed after 3 hours of flight with lithuanians applause… as usual :) We passed throughout the gates and in front of the arrivals hall handsome,typical south european man took us from airport to our hotel Valentina in San’t Julian’s district.(downtown).

IMG_9758 IMG_9764 IMG_9734

Very smart, clean and efficient hotel, close to the night life of Paceville but on a quiet street away from the bars, water side restaurants are just a few minutes walk away as are the main bus routes in to town.Most of the personal was friendly,showed us ,,must see” places,restaurants and even gave us a few advises about night life,shopping and car rental.

IMG_9465

After few minutes of sleep and relaxation we decided to see nearest local bar or Gelateria…( I was waiting for this all the flight:)) After a walk along the Spinola bay coast we sat down on the sidewalk and just smell the breeze from the mediterranean sea and drank so puffy and light ,,Cassar de Malte”which  is the first Maltese sparkling wine, manufactured by traditional champagnization method. The Maltese version of champagne is quite «young», it has been produced since 1999!

 Morning beauty he said ! After a strong,but mediterranean sea flavored breakfast we started our tripping a long all bays of malta!

IMG_9775   IMG_9774

                                                                                    PUBLIC TRANSPORT &COMMUNICATION

The Maltese government is now in the process of re-nationalising the islands bus services. These are brilliant for getting around all of Malta’s sights and a seven day pass purchased at the airport also includes the X service buses that serve the airport. At only 6.50 Euros for a seven day pass this has got to be one of the best value transport systems in Europe! So if you’re not a brilliant traveller you still would get the idea of taking public busses for sure! And if in some cases you’re not there’s a second adorable communication which can really help you- RESIDENTS! From young to old every maltese speaking english ! On every corner you can noticed a lot of advertisement for english courses or private schools.

VALLETTA

Like all tourist we took a bus till the finale stop ,,Main bus terminus”.But our goal was somehow to buy tickets for ferry to other secret (which i didn’t knew then) country. NOW HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM ! Where to go next to reach ,,Virtu Ferry terminal”.. While we were searching for right way on iPhone our maltese business man with a horse taxi shout loudly ,,My friend a can help you” i felt exactly like in Istanbul ! So we took that adorable sweet and cute horse taxi to reach the terminal:)image-5

IMG_9781

After we bought a ticket for ,,somewhere” afcourse we haven’t got any idea how to reach the city center so like many of travelers we found a compromise -straight away !!! No i can’t imagine how stupid we were..It was too hot even to lay down in the hotel rest room or in swimming pool as well.. 43 degrees  of celcius ! I even take off my bra :D So after we passed Valleta’s water front we saw sight CITY CENTER I Can’t describe that amazing feeling when i under stud that the glass of water is somewhere near !! When we got through the arch the huge elevator  was waiting for me ! So finally we reached ,,Upper Barrakka Gardens”.

IMG_9638

 This is a lovely place to take a stroll and take in the views over Valletta harbour. It’s also a great vantage point to view the ‘noon gun’ firing.Also if you’re the same fashion edict like me definitely take picture on Pope Pius V street stairs which are adorable by their architecture,color and history..Also try to find some energy and walk by the main street ,,Triq Ir Repubblika” which is filled with shops cozy restaurants and small cafes.

But it’s less that 10% of my story of this wonderland! More Action,Trips and Adventures on other review SOON !

Just for you! My dear reader:*

The Fantastic Malta Vol.1

Hey guys, its been so long since i wrote something. I have been travelling a lot and having some other stuff. So sorry for that, but i’m here now and everything is back to what they were ;)

My purpose of travelling to Malta was : 1. celebrate my 20th birthday; 2.visit my best friend 3. have some fun and relax from studies and work!(of course)

I was amazed by the wonderful nature of Malta. Trees, water, plants…they were all so exotic and real. And of course the people, it was not so hard to communicate with the local people – basically everyone knew English language.

malta2

malta1…April 6-10, those four days were just incredible. We were eating the best of Malta food, fresh vegetables, fresh fish. Fresh fresh fresh. Everything.

By this map, you can see were were I exactly in Malta.

photo1 (2)One of the famous buildings i fell in love instantly in Malta was St. Johns Co-Cathedral in Valleta. It was built by the Knights of Malta between 1573 and 1578, having been commissioned in 1572 by Grand Master Jean de la Cassière as the conventual church of the Order of the Knights Hospitaller of St John, known as the Knights of Malta. The Church was designed by the Maltese military architect Glormu Cassar (Girolamo Cassar) who designed several of the more prominent buildings in Valletta. The church is considered to be one of the finest examples of high Baroque architecture in Europe and one of the world’s great cathedrals.

New York|USA

Benvenuto! Dear followers, as the spring days are going by we wrote one more interesting and we hope impressive artickle about lovely but not our favorite  NEW YORK city.

Late, peaceful and  calm evening in Milano.My lithuanian friend Zivile is cooking tagliatelle with pesto sauce and we both drinking white Verdicchio wine”Dry, medium-bodied, crisp white with minerally flavor and a sea-air freshness,, after few minutes of this elegant, classic and Italian dinner I’m getting an email that I have to come in Malpensa airport after 2,5 hour! Because I have a shoot in NY!!!! You can’t even try to imagine my reaction when I had read this.. After that shocking 15 minutes starts the worst… packing, unpacking , prepacking….But after all I’m in Malpensa airport! And after 14 hours of flight,I’m in NY.

Tripping from airport.

Manhattan Skylan.

The skyline of New York is changing with so much building going on, but it’s always inspiring and beautiful.In case,every street and park in Manhattan provides a fantastic photograph. The skyline is unique and gorgeous.What is truly different from any other skyline is that when you’re looking at all these biuldings,bridges or panoramics you almost feel like you are looking at a movie set.

CENTRAL PARK

Extending from 59th to 110th streets between 5th and 8th avenues [Central Park West], Central Park is one of the iconic sights of New York City. While it may appear to be a beautiful natural area, be aware that it is entirely man-made except for the glacier scarred protruding rocks.IMG_6707

BROADWAY

Broadway is famous as the pinnacle of the American theatre industry. This district is known for its abundance of theatres. Many of theatres have been in use for over 50 years! Everyone has to visit NY at least once in a lifetime and when there you have to sample Broadway even if you’re not looking to take in a show. This place has a buzz 24/7

TIME SQUARE

I would really recommend going there at night rather than in the day. Probably looks quite tacky in daylight. Lights, bustle, taxis and people everywhere!The guys trying to sell you the bus tickets and comedy tickets are enerally ok and helpful
Be aware of the people dressed up as Disney type characters, don’t even acknowledge them, as soon as you do they swarm on you and want you to have pics taken with them. They seemed to target couples with kids the most.:))

IMG_5575

IMG_5579

Police presence is strong so you always feel safe. Many weird characters can be encountered such as the ” naked cowboy”, Spider-Man,iron man etc but this truly adds to the charm of Times Square.

IMG_5580

IMG_5537

IMG_5578

FIFTH AVENUE

Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue are two avenues to see when in NYC. Fifth has one of the best and biggest Apple Stores always worth going in. Department stores, designer stores, and many boutique shops, Tiffany, and whatever you desire.IMG_5577

IMG_5653

IMG_5772

IMG_5769

Think of any world brand you want…Chanel, Dior, Burberry, Hermes, Armani, Versace, Tiffany’s, Cartier…you can find all of this here. Even if you’re not a shopaholic, you should visit it. You don’t need to shop, just walk on it. There’s no way you won’t find anything interesting. The way they are decorated, the windows of the high-end brands are art by themselves. And you don’t always have to buy something. You can always enjoy the window-shopping since most of the stores are extremely expensive.

Greenwich Village

Like a small town within Manhattan, the Village has narrow tree-lined streets and brick townhouses.A great local neighborhood to explore. I often go at night and you’ll be walking down quiet streets by yourself like you are in your hometown with no to little traffic and people around. This place is the complete opposite of Times Square.

IMG_6708

SOHO

SOHO is home to some great shopping and food areas. This is where i shop in NYC – not on 5th ave. It has a local atmosphere while still swallowing in stores and shops. The Uniqlo world headquarters are here (a great store btw) and you’ll find lots of local coffee shops and restaurants and local shops besides the big name brand stores.

IMG_5655

IMG_5652

Dunkin’ Donuts is America’s favorite every day, all-day stop for coffee and baked goods. Dunkin’ Donuts is a market leader in the regular/decaf coffee… Must try! Unfortunately it wasn’t so good as everyone are saying :/

IMG_5656

And for my baby Kamila-Starbucks :))SOOO American ..after Italian espresso it was teribble :D

THE FLATIRON BUILDING

The Flatiron Building is a famous landmark of New York City. It was completed in 1902 and was one of the first buildings in the world to use a steel skeleton.This Daniel Burnham design got its moniker because, as you might guess, it resembles an iron.This is an unusual type building as opposed to square and multistoreyed NewYork city buildings.

IMG_5678

 This building is really worth seeing. It is triangular in the front and is broad at the back. The building is very attractive and can be seen from afar.
Many offices and other businesses inside and we could not go and see the inside the building.
Many television channels and tv serials use this building for television commercials and documentaries. Moveis like Godzilla and Spiderman are shot in this building..

ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s One World Trade Center is redefining Lower Manhattan’s New York skyline. Standing at a symbolic 1,776 feet tall, the architectural and engineering marvel is an ever-present symbol of renewal and hope.

FRANK GEHRY’S NYC TOWER

IMG_5752

According to its official website, 8 Spruce Street is one of the tallest residential towers in the world. Completed in February 2011,the building was developed by Forest City Ratner, designed by Frank Gehry Architects and WSP Cantor Seinuk Structural Engineers, and constructed by Kreisler Borg Florman. It contains a public elementary school owned by the Department of Education.Above that and grade-level retail, the tower contains only residential rental units (898 in total), a rarity in New York’s Financial District.

THE AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

The American Museum of Natural History of New York City is one of the largest and most celebrated museums in the world and my favorite. The Museum comprises 25 interconnected buildings that house 46 permanent exhibition halls, research laboratories, and its renowned library. The collections contain over 150 million specimens, of which only a small fraction can be displayed at any given time. The Museum has a scientific staff of more than 200, and sponsors over 100 special field expeditions each year.

NIGHT LIFE.

THE END

After 2/5 weeks of staying and broading my mind in America I understood that i need more classic,cleanier,historical place to live and at any momemt i thought about desserts,coffe or ice-cream I could’t fall into oblivion my lovely and unforgetable Italy…I prefer creamy Tiramisu, cold and fresh gelato but not snikers or fat donuts :)) So as autumn days was going by i booked a flight to my simple pimple Lithuania.

Miami|Florida.

Dear readers, we hope you enjoyed our articles about travels in Italy or Belarus..But now it’s time to look somewhere further !

Miami is hot hot hot! And it’s not just the sultry weather. Here, the nightlife is scorching, thanks to a strong Latin influence and spicy salsa culture. Dance the noche away in a nightclub, or indulge in a fancy meal at one of the city’s celebrity-owned restaurants. By day, hit the beach of course, or have yourself a walkabout, taking in Miami’s colorful art deco architecture. Grab a Cuban sandwich in Little Havana, then ride the vintage carousel at Virginia Key Beach Park.

Fort Lauderdale’s canals and charm have earned it the nickname “The Venice of America.” The beaches offer 23 miles of golden sand, lively with the spirited antics of happy vacationers. Sail the blue-green waters on a chartered catamaran, or dive beneath the surface to meet-and-greet the local sea life. Shopping and dining al fresco on Las Olas Boulevard is one of Fort Lauderdale’s greatest pleasures, thanks to adorable shops and prime people-watching.
