Time is running short

June 14th, 2009 by UFO in Denmark

My stay in Denmark is slowly coming to an end. Tomorrow is the day I need to hand over the room in a perfect state. It means I have to pack my stuff and totally clean this place. There are rumours, that somebody has paid 300 kr (~40 euro) for not clean mirror. What to say, it is just Danish system to do things.

The rest of my stay I will spend in place of my Czech friend Jan. During the week I have to pass two more exams and then I am going home.

Back to Lithuania (for a while)

June 12th, 2009 by UFO in Lithuania, Traveling

I finally found some time to write another blog entry. I wanted to make another trip before I finish my studies in Denmark, so two weeks ago me and Alina went to Lithuania together.

We flew from Copenhagen to Riga, where we stayed couple hours. We just walked around the city, but deliberately avoided the old town, because we are planning to visit it again during the summer. Then we took a bus to Vilnius. Our first action there was visiting Čili Pica, where I tasted a good meal again (really exceptional comparing to Danish „food“) :-).


The time I was there was working time, I needed to prepare for my exams and Alina was finishing her thesis. But it did not mean we could not have fun. We went to play bowling, visit the cinema (see my Caroline blog entry). We also visited Visaginas, Alina's home town, for two days. I also walked a lot around the Vilnius city centre and surroundings. You can take a look at the pictures (first few are from Riga).

I did not want to go back to Denmark so much, but I had to finish my exams.


Movie: Coraline (3D)

June 7th, 2009 by UFO in Culture

During my stay in Lithuania we went to the cinema to see the film Coraline in 3D. I had not read about the movie much before we went, just a small introduction on introduction on csfd.cz that put the film into Animated / Adventure / Family / Fantasy fairytale genre.

In the first half of the film it was true, but after that everything changed into very dark and quite scary (amplified by the 3D projection) show :-). The humour is mostly black, the film carries slight resemblance to the older film from the director Henry Selick, Nightmare Before Christmas.

I cannot do anything else than recommend this film, especially if you will go and see it in 3D. Do not worry, it really is not film just for children :-).
