Map******Birthday Fun in the Snow******

We are back from an amazing weekend away for my Birthday in Lithuania. Tracy, Tara, Andrew, Troy, Steve and I headed to the airport on Saturday afternoon and booked into the Lounge where we enjoyed some beverages before our flight.

On arrival at the Radisson hotel we checked in and headed to the Sky Bar in our hotel which had 360degree views of the Vilnius Skyline and also had cheap drinks, we liked it so much we spent the evening there.

On Sunday we wandered around the city, playing in the snow and some people falling over (Andrew). Then early afternoon we were picked up and taken to the woods for our adventure of Husky Dog Sledding. I’ve been trying to do this in so many countries and it finally came together. It was absolutely remarkable how the dogs worked together and the scenery was stunning. We sat back and relaxed and let the dogs to the work. Amazing experience!

After that it was back to the hotel to get ready for our sightseeing visit of Vilnius and the Old Town.. in a Limo of course as that’s how we roll! Yes a stretch limo chauffeured our group around, stopping at sights and photo opportunities before delivering us to the restaurant that we were having my Birthday dinner at.

From dinner it was back to our hangout of the Sky Bar in our hotel where we stayed only leaving to visit Lithuania’s largest Casino – conveniently also in our hotel!.

On Monday we walked around some more, went to the castle and the lookout and threw a few more snowballs then it was back to our Sky Bar for dinner and the hotel were lovely enough to give me a cake when they found out it was my birthday!. From there it was back to the airport for our flight home.

All round a Brilliant Birthday and such great company!.
