The streets were deserted. Had we fallen into a fairy-tale city decorated like a fancy wedding cake but without any guests? The morning felt oddly serene as we wandered the cobblestoned lanes and wound our way to Vilnius’ central Cathedral Square." ...continued in the Fallen Kingdoms Chapter of Searching for Unique.
Favourite Cafe: Crustum Bakery and Café earned its place as our favourite coffee and bakery spot in Vilnius: crustum.lt.

“Stroll through a city where European comfort fuses with the medieval past to form a medley of arts, culture and contemporary urban venues", Searching for Unique
“We trod back in time to Sri Lanka’s central archaeological sites, which seep with passion even in the present day. As the sun’s early rays turned the sky from steely grey to a soft lemon colour, we stood alone near the ancient Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi, a tree in the southern end of Anuradhapura’s archaeological city. Metal gates barred access, clamped together with a large lock that hung dejectedly until the key man arrived. It was not long before we realized everything was about to change.”
