After spending a lot of time abroad, returning back home becomes the most exciting part of our journeys. So it happens that we were born and raised in a charismatic and unique city of Kaunas, the second largest city in Lithuania, known for its vibrant atmosphere, extraordinary geographical location and splendid interwar architecture. But that should not be new for you, Dear Reader, because we have already shared an argumentative opinion that Kaunas is the best city in the world*.
This time we wanted to try to look at our home town in a way we look to the other cities in Europe – as tourists. Therefore, we are very excited to announce that this week is #HomeWeek! Firstly, it means that we did a takeover of our hometown Kaunas official Instagram page, where for the seven days we will be posting photos of how we see Kaunas. Secondly, Home Week means that this week on our blog you will hear only about the uniqueness of our hometown!
Kaunas Through the Eyes of a Frequent Guest
One thing is to try to see your hometown as tourists does, and totally the other is to hear the opinion of city’s guest. Therefore, we are very excited to have Kevin Andrew as a guest on our blog for this Home Week! We first saw Kevin on the feed of our Instagram. Back then we noticed that among all the great shots from European cities there are a lot of moments from Kaunas in his gallery. Later it turned out, that back in the 2009 Kevin found himself in Kaunas totally by accident (snow storm stopped his plane!), and since then he returns here regularly.
According to our dear guest, in Kaunas “every corner has a story to tell about Lithuania’s rich history and development”. So let’s hear what stories from Kaunas Kevin has to share with us.
