San Sabastian Spain

Sleeping is forbiden

sunny 35 °C

Spain! Spain! Spain!

Here's the only country I know where the people can stay up till 5:AM in the morning and can still go to work like nothing ever happened the night before.

This is truly a party Country, and what I mean by this, the whole Country parties all the time in all parts of Spain... You will live the real Festa in Spain. The party doesn't start till 1:AM and last until 6 or 8:AM in the morning. Not only that but after hanging all night the people they go to work! I never could understand this so I figure it must be in the blood of the Spanish people. Well anyway, they know how to live life, and I love them for this reason.

If you would like to visit Spain, by all means, go and check out the San Sebastian Jazz Festival (July).
They have great restaurants to dine in and there's plenty to do. They also have Casino in the City, so the nightlife is exciting!

Vilinus Lithuania

Jazz Lithuania style


I have only visited Lithuania once, I had a great time getting to know the people there. They have a wonderful Jazz festival called the ViniusJazz festival. The City of Vilnius is a very quiet place with an old age eastern European charm. I do remember that the town had a Black Madonna in a church. I also remember that the marketplace had many different types of Amber that they were selling. Do you know what's good about traveling? It's learning from each other.

They had so many different types of Amber, they had Black, White, and Yellow Amber's. Listen I mean they had Amber and lots of it. So I ask someone why, and they told me that it comes from the Baltic sea. So yes I was in the area where Amber comes from. I didn't know this until then ( you live and you learn). So me being me, I brought back so many pieces that I end up giving most of it away.

Anyway, we had a great time there, we went inside the city and discovered many interesting things about the City. I only had two days to discover this beautiful place, that's one of the set-back also when you travel as I do. Sometimes it's hard to experience all that a City has to offer. But on the other hand, I was there! Well anyway, the festival was great and the music was one-of-a-kind. It's a remote part of the world, but that's the beauty of it all.
