Well as you know last week’s topic was all about food, so this week we figured we would do drinks. This is a huge topic so we will definitely be covering both food and drinks in later episodes but it’s a start right?


So… drinks, this week we go over a few common words for different types of drinks in Lithuanian, the Baltic way saga continues as Solveiga gives us a follow up on how Lithuania celebrated its 25th anniversary. Tim continues his “Lithuanian Superstitions and Traditions” but this week he’s very confused its pretty funny… have a listen to find out why!

We also give a shout out to Andries from South Africa and Adriana from Uruguay its really great knowing you guys are enjoying the show thanks for all the support.
