February and March were not easy because I was ill nearly the whole time (lung infection, not funny, I lost 6 kg) and weather was horrible
Recapitulating I can say that I am satisfied with my stay in Lithuania even though it was not easy at the beginning.
What I disliked there:
The dormitory (really disgusting, showers and the kitchen were so dirty and broken showers were not repaired).
Many (not all!!!) Lithuanians were quite impolite and rude to foreigners.
Only small parts of Vilnius are really beautiful, I prefer Riga and Tallinn...!
What I liked/loved:
My class mates (not only class mates, now I can say friends)
Akropolis, a mega shopping mall and the cinema there
My sports club (by the way, thank you Florian, Jella and Jan for the accompaniment)
The supermarkets (Rimi and Maxima and Iki) with great business hours and an amazing assortment and also amazing prices
Egyz (mobile phone company): Nowhere in the world it is so cheap and uncomplicated to buy a sim-card; writing sms and calling is so cheap, I will miss that in Germany
Going out for Bowling
The old town
The north of Lithuania (coming from Daugavpils, Latvia and crossing the border the road leads you through an amazing landscape with many lakes
Restaurants (which I mostly visited with Vagelis) like Medininkai (the best of all...) and Forto Dvaras and Lokys.....
And last but not least - the best place in whole Lithuania - the Curonian Spit where Florian, Helene, Veronika and I visited for one weekend, one of my best short-trips....!
