The Ministry of Economy and Innovation & Lithuania Travel has launched a new travel campaign to entice travelers.
Up to 500 Lithuanian short-term accommodation providers have joined forces with the Ministry of Economy and Innovation & Lithuania Travel, the national tourism development agency, for a new tourism campaign: tourists who stay in the country for three nights or more will get one night free of charge. 10,000 registered independent travelers will receive a complimentary night at an accommodation provider not exceeding €65 to tour the country for one more day.
Brasov is cute, compact and colorful. A short getaway to this vibrant Romanian city made one of my life’s best trips. Cobblestone streets, amazing cafes and bars made it a perfect destination. Although I have shared a lot of stories and images of Brasov in the past on my blog, I could not resist myself from posting more images about this amazing city. When I arrived at Henri Coanda International Airport, Bucharest, my friend came straight from Brasov to receive me. And from there I started my Romanian sojourn. Have you been to Romania ? If yes, please do share with me your experience. I would like to listen your stories.

I had already shared my Moscow experience in my previous articles. I am sharing a few more images, which I came across while cleaning my hard disk and found them to be interesting. Most of the images were taken from a basic Canon 450D. During my three-day stay in Moscow, I used to spend a lot of town around Red Square. From bars to shopping malls, I tried to capture diverse locations to get a glimpse of Moscow’s daily life. It was a quick yet memorable trip for me. I am sure you will love these images. meбольшо́е спаси́бо
In my previous Moscow post, I told you how I explored and completely enjoyed this mighty city. However, three days were not enough to know the city. During my trip, I captured hundreds of images of this beautiful city. So, I would like to take the opportunity to help you feel Moscow by viewing these images. Hope these images inspire you to visit this historic city in future.
