Once settled in, two things were clear: a) I was going to like the hostel and b) I would be fine in Lithuania.
There were a few other bags already in the room, but I only counted three beds occupied besides my own. Three other people in an eight-bed dorm is a rare luxury.
As this trip starts to wind down, there are things that I've never elaborated on anywhere near as much as I ...
