    By on Feb. 20, 2013

    By on Feb. 19, 2013
    I had a chance to visit Be'er Sheva and blog about it in 2009. I went back there today and blogged about it - read it on my personal blog, with pictures, videos and a possibility to comment!
  • Esch-sur-Alzette - the hope of Luxembourg

    By on Oct. 3, 2012
    Reposted from DaivaRepeckaite.com, which is now my original blog, at least until the blogging platform at CafeBabel becomes user-friendlier and allows comments. You are welcome to comment on the other website. It seems I will start describing my recent travels in Europe from the end.
  • Wonderland: Trying to scratch the surface in London

    By on April 24, 2012
    Before the blogging platform is updated and a technical solution for allowing comments on blogs again is found by Cafe Babel, the entry, like others, is cross-posted with DaivaRepeckaite.com. You can comment it there. London has become such a usual travel destination for Central and Eastern European people that it would be difficult to surprise them with anything.

  • Sunny and artsy Metz

    By on April 7, 2012
    As always, cross-posted with DaivaRepeckaite.com - feel free to comment there before Cafe Babel enables comments on its blogs. Metz (Northeast France) is excellent for a day trip, particularly when you are sick and tired of this year’s Europe’s prolonged winter.
  • Wonderland: The ABC of this year’s travels

    By on Dec. 31, 2011
    Cross-posted from DaivaRepeckaite.com - you can comment there. I found a fun questionnaire on this blog and decided to use it to ‘close’ 2011 on Wonderland. This year was exceptionally full of travelling, for which I feel grateful. I went somewhere almost every month. I visited 3 continents, 12 countries (6 of them – for the first time) and 21 cities.
  • Translating between regular language and Economics

    By on Dec. 27, 2011
    When I posted these on my Facebook, Nabeelah suggested that I write something for 'Tower of Babel'. The column is welcome to repost this. You can comment the entry on DaivaRepeckaite.com Have you ever noticed that the best compliment students give their professors is something along these lines: “S/he is capable of explaining complicated things in such a simple manner”?
  • Witnessing a cloaca of immaturity in Prague

    By on Dec. 14, 2011
    Cross-posted with Daiva.Repeckaite.com - feel free to comment the post there. Prague is probably by far the most known and popular city in Central and Eastern Europe, with hordes of tourists and large numbers of exchange and full degree students. Some people know Prague as a city of sophisticated culture, the birthplace of Franz Kafka. Others associate it with nightlife and youth.
