HEY!!! we are back!! Lets learn Lithuanian :D We have most definitely missed doing this and missed you our listeners… Last episode we were in a small mining town in South Africa. This time around we are back in Lithuania and ready to get podcasting once again.

Learn Lithuanian Africa

This is episode number 31 and this episode is dedicated to our recent trip to Africa. We spent the last 5 weeks seeing some of the most extraordinary places, people and animals South Africa has to offer we’ve seen Lions, zebra’s, elephant’s, rhino’s name it we saw it. We’ve shark dived we’ve bungee jumped and met some amazing people from all walks of life. It was an amazing experience for Solveiga and we are glad we get to share it with you.

We hope you managed to follow our trip on FaceBook or Twitter if not here are a few pictures from our trip.

Having been on the go 24/7 we found it a little difficult to keep the podcast going and for that we are extremely sorry, that said we are back and looking forward to finish out the year strong with some awesome new episodes. If you have anything you would like us to cover please let us know in the show note’s comment section below.

In this episode we hear all about a Spa town called Birštonas a couple of km away from Kaunas, we learn Lithuanian words and phrases dedicated to Africa and in News of the week we get an update from Solveiga regrading NATO servicemen in Lithuania. Good or bad? you decide!
