Cosy Places to Drink in Vilnius

Cosy Places to Drink in Vilnius

Vilnius
I visited Vilnius in January, meaning that it was very, very, very cold. Much to my distaste (I realise sarcasm doesn't really come across in writing), this meant spending a lot of our weekend warming up with a cup of mulled wine or two. Luckily, Vilnius turned out to have loads of places that were cosy, friendly and served fantastic mulled wine.

If you've read my most recent post, you'll already know that I spent my birthday weekend in Vilnius wandering snowy streets, eating constantly and drinking plenty of mulled wine. Having not done much research about Vilnius, I was surprised by how much there was to see and do, but also by the fantastic food scene. We ate a LOT on this trip, mainly because minus 11 is pretty cold so required plenty of stops to warm up! The below might look like a list of every single place I stopped, but honestly these are just the highlights!

A Very Snowy Weekend In Vilnius

A Very Snowy Weekend In Vilnius

Vilnius
One of my favourite things about this trip was that I didn't do much research, so had no idea what to expect. This meant discovering lots of lovely surprises as we wandered around the snowy streets, and allowed us to experience our own version of Vilnius - although I realise that in a small city you're pretty much guaranteed to do the same things you'd have done if you'd read up on it!

Budapest
Budapest isn't the kind of place that I would have thought to visit for the restaurant scene, and someone had even told me that the food was the least favourite part of their trip when they visited. But every single meal I had during my long weekend in Budapest was excellent. There was one restaurant in particular that blew me away, so here's me raving about it.

A Must-Do Guide to Cluj-Napoca

Cluj
Cluj-Napoca (or Cluj) is situated in the Transylvanian region of Romania, and it has everything you would want from a European city break. I visited in September and weather was gorgeous for the 5 days (a sunny mid twenties) I was there, so this trip consisted of wandering around in the sunshine and drinking plenty of cold wine on sunny cobbled streets. If you're visiting Cluj or looking for inspiration for your next city break, read on for my must-do guide!
5 Reasons to Make Eastern Europe Your Next Holiday Destination

5 Reasons to Make Eastern Europe Your Next Holiday Destination

This year I've decided that I LOVE Eastern Europe. My previous experience of city adventures had been Barcelona, Paris, Rome & Dublin, all of which I adored. Then in January I celebrated my birthday in Budapest and got my first taste of Goulash and great value travel. Since then I've discovered the charm of Gdansk, Krakow and Cluj Napoca which have all been rich in culture, history, beauty and (most importantly!) fun.
