JAZ Aquamarine Resort: Hurghada, Egypt
JAZ Aquamarine Resort JAZ Aquamarine is a 5-star Resort, located in the Red Sea Governorate, Hurghada, Egypt. This time I would like to share a few photos of the JAZ Aquamarine Hotel and its surroundings, plus just a sneak peek of my solo trip to the Karnak Temple. Keep in mind, all of these photographs are unedited and these are all natural colors
Lithuanians in Egypt: Local bus trip to Luxor and Hurghada
The 7-day all-inclusive stay in Hurghada, Egypt was paid for by the company that I work for. 25 colleagues of mine came with their wives or girlfriends so a total of 50 Lithuanian guests swarmed the 5-star resort. Laying by the pool and enjoying the sun is nice, but real Egypt stretches on the other side of the fence, so I took the local bus to Lux
Towns and villages of Northern Lithuania!
21 km hike from Linkuva to Žeimelis Semigallia (Lithuanian: Žiemgala, Latvian: Zemgale, German: Semgallen) is a historical land that was previously inhabited by the Semigallian Baltic tribe and is now split between Latvia and Lithuania. Linkuva and Žeimelis are two historically important towns in Lithuanian Semigallia. Both of them take a special p
Journey around the world: Thailand
In the last weeks before the trip, we spent a lot of time on physical preparation. My hometown stadium served as a stretch of obstacles, and the old streets of Linkuva were a sanctuary of peace. Confidence grew with every workout. Nothing boosts the mood as much as some propper music. In this particular case, 'One night in Bangkok' by Muray Head co
A virtual tour to Klaipėda City!
THE GEM OF WESTERN LITHUANIA 'Dark' and 'cold' are yet some other synonyms of the city of Klaipėda during long months of Lithuanian winter. While Christmas morning came with a thick layer of snow, it vanished quickly after the holidays, leaving grey clouds and extremely high humidity behind it. Combined with low temperature, it makes you tremble. D
Kokopelli festival in the famous Vinetu Village!
Vinetu village is an open-air museum, where history and legends come alive. Also, it is the home of some special people that I was blessed to meet almost three years ago. It was the end of the winter when I happened to pop up in the Vinetu village sauna for the first time. Mindaugas Timinskas and his wife Jurgita are the ones that started building
Journey around the world: Georgia (a.k.a. Sakartvelo)
BATUMI A slight drizzle turned into a downpour. Heavy drops washed our faces and wet clothes were getting heavy. Devices were safe in the depths of my backpack and everything else didn't matter. The mood was at its peak and nothing could affect it. Not even a thunderstorm. After three weeks in Turkey, authorization codes to get Iran visas were not
Journey around the world: Bulgaria & Turkey
BULGARIA Some guys tried to convince us not to go to Bulgaria. According to them, it would be a waste of time as it 'did not have much to offer'. That was funny as we heard the same story about every single country that we crossed on our way: Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, and even Poland. 'I never heard of someone traveling in that region the way you
Journey around the world: Hungary & Romania
IMAGINARY LINE While the car moved slowly, I flew away to the realm of my imagination. On the top page of the notebook, I engraved letters I.R.A.N. At that point in time, Iran was the main goal of our journey. In order to reach it, some smaller steps had to be taken. For now, it was Hungary and Romania. The Slovak driver noticed my writings. He con
Denmark: Living, Working & Traveling
Yes, Denmark still pulls me back in every once in a while. I did some calculations and it seems like altogether I've spent about 1 year in this Scandinavian country. All the visits happened in the span of the last 7 years and the first one was back in 2015. Last summer I ended up in Denmark again. This time, as a Team Leader at the construction com
Nothing could stop him: 25 km hike with my Father!
A unique sense of humor is my Dad's sharpest weapon! He uses it impeccably against any hardship that pops up in his path. A certain state of his joints is one of them, and even it could not stop him from hiking 25 km along the coast of the Baltic Sea. This part of the country was his home for over three months when he was a civil engineering studen
Morning in Lithuanian wilderness: Camping with my wife and child!
Once upon a time, there was a man who had a wife and a child. He spent many months working long hours, building those grain storage silos one after another, never being home. All this time he kept in mind that his lady was working twice as hard as she had to take care of their tiny little daughter which had indescribable capabilities of both, radia
