    What Is Lithuania Like?????

    My grandmother is 1/2 Lithuanian which means I am only an 1/8th Lithuanian. But, I feel so connected to it. Has anyone been there? What is it like? How are the people? What do you eat there? What do people look like? Please share with me until I can travel there!

    I am a hundred precent Lithuania.

    Born there and went to school there for a while and remember my whole life there from a very young age. Most Lithuanias are VERY pale. My whole family is pale except from my dads side.

    I'm actually not, but my husband is!

    I'm very proud of him. We'll be married 7 years this next Valentine's Day. As tave myliu mano vyras! 😘 It's hard to find many resources on learning Lithuanian. He's better at speaking than writing it, and I can't seem to find many things to learn with!
