I arrived in Vilnius around 10 pm, and jumped onto bus 88, that I already knew would take me close to my hostel. The bus is only 1 Euro. Pretty cheap.
On the bus I meet a French Canadian who is going to meet her boyfriend and backpack around the Baltic countries for 2 weeks. She is really cool and I use my phone maps to help her find her stop.
From the bus stop to my hostel is 1 km walk, but looks like a not so nice area. The good news is, I made it without any issues. You never know when you are new to a country and it is dark out.
Checking into the hostel was a breeze, and cheap at $10 CAD a night. But I only booked one night in case the hostel itself is no good.
There is only one bed left, which is the top bunk. I hate the top bed because I am not a climber, but for one night, that’s OK.
20 minutes later I am trying to sleep but one guy is snoring so loud, that its impossible. Actually I have never heard any snore that loud in my life. I mean, it was almost screaming.
Another guy in the room got so mad, that he woke the guy up twice, so we could sleep.
The next morning I see the guy who was snoring and he looked like an idiot. He did not look like the type of person I wanted to chat up.
But let this be a lesson, never judge a book by its cover. Later that day he came into the room when I was going to try and catch up on sleep I missed last night, and he started to apologize to me for snoring. It turns out the reason he looked like a not nice person was because he was extremely embarrassed about snoring.
We had a really nice conversation and I found out he is from Spain, and is traveling around to meet his girlfriend who lives in another country.
He and I later took a walk to a cheap supermarket, he knew of. What a truly nice guy.
That morning two of the other guys in the room took me out for breakfast. My egg omelet was 1.90 Euro. Love the cheap food already.
During the day, I walked around Vilnius and just explored. Check out some of the cool pictures.
In the evening I didn’t do too much, just tried getting some sleep, but mister snorie was at it again. Meh, what can you do.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. The hostel turned out to be really nice, so I am staying 3 more nights. But who knows where I will go after that.
