The view you can see not in Paris but south of France !

provance

When I say I’m in France to people, they mostly say say “oh! I guess you’ll enjoy the eiffel tower”.  Just like Japan = Tokyo, people think France = Paris.

I’m from Japan but not Tokyo, and I’m not heading to Paris 😜

 

I of course would like to visit Paris, but since I’ve been exploring the South, I am discovering how beautiful the South France is !

I’ll pick some reason why you should visit.

As you know, the houses and buildings are influenced by the climate of the aria. Every area has their unique colors, materials, shapes for those and all are quite different .

The view with these cute houses is what you can see only in south of France.

Also, there are much nature and leisure places to enjoy it.

If you are person enjoying nature, lying down in the sun, calm and quiet atmosphere,

You should definitely check out South part of France😳

This is in front of  Cathedral Square. When there’s wedding(I see only on weekend), you can hear the bell ringing. Luckily, that day I could hear the sound of the bell and it mede the day beautiful with blue sky and people relaxing, chatting and smiling.

I have never seen this tourist bus since I arrived in Last September and until April/May!

You can visit Gediminas  tower and part of Vilnius castle by walking too. You can go up and see the castle for free though nobody can’t go inside.  You can go in the tower, this was rebuilded as small museum and to go in you need to pay 2euro for students, 5euro for adults.

The White monument over the castle is three crosses. You can go there by walking too.

Japanese funny mishearing songs xD

Japanese people pretty much enjoy to listen foreign songs, and we also love to mishear the lyrics to some Japanese words. For example,

In the lyrics of “Killing in the name” (from Rage of against the machine,American rock band)

there’s phrase “now you do what they told ya”

and for japanese, it sounds

“split the nugget, dad”

now you do -> nagetto ナゲット(nugget)

what they -> watte 割って(split it)

told ya -> tochan父ちゃん (dad, pop)

Those who died ->dousundaiどうすんだい(what the hell are you gonna do (with these nuggets) )

So now you know this, this youtube video is hilarious! Split Nugget Daddy

How I found accommodation in Lithuania

Hi there😃 Kaip sekasi?(How are you?)

There was a sad news yesterday from Manchester. Let’s hope nothing like this would happen never again..My sincere condolences for the death of those people who passed away.

 

Today, I would like to talk about how I could found my current apparent in Vilnius. Also, if you are studeet and planning to study in Lithuania, you’d better check out😏

Why I didn’t want to stay in my university’s dorm was because

1495532778289…not this xD

But frankly speaking, yes, this is one of the reason. Also all the common place was so messy and I couldn’t have my own room… it was the hell for me 👽

 

So I decided to find flat by my own. I thought it won’t be so hard as I already experienced in some western europe countries. You can find easily there even you don’t speak the language well, as long as you understand English.

 

However… in Vilnius…😰😰😰

↑accommodate information for foreigners

↑for the locals

 

As you can see, the price is set expensive for foreign people, and at the time I was flathunting I couldn’t find any those kind of room, all apartments were full the beginning of September. I guess everyone thinks the same.. wants to have private room at least xD

So I made contacts to some Lithuanian landlords through Lithuanian website, which is full in Lithuanian.

When you look for the information on internet, you need to use Lithuanian words

_20170523_184525.JPG

Apartment, flat  -> butas
Student -> studentui
Near -> netoli
Vilnius -> Vilniaus or Vilniuje

 

In English the information is limited, but in Lithuanian you can see many vacancies^-^.

AI made contact some owners or Intermediation company by emails (i wasn’t enough brave to call xD)  and exchanged some text by using google translation.

For the first message, you should tell them

・you don’t understand Lithuanian
・When you wanna move in
・your name, name of uni
・how long you want to stay

Then the conversion must go smoothly.

Some penple speak English very well so it wasn’t hard after I made contact. Though some people never answered or said “there is no vacancy”😖

Talking about me, I got a reply from OB of my university, and he said there’s one vacant room where he used to live with his parents. They offeres pretty reasonable price for the rent, and the landlady(his mom) was very nice and friendly so I decided finally after 2weeks that I had started flat hunting😳!! It was long…

Even though the landlady doesn’t speaking English, the OB is so kind that every month he comes with her just to interpret for me. She comes over to the flat to correct rent end of every month.

 

I’m happy that I could meet awesome people and find very comfortable apartment 😉😉

What I like in Lithuania !

As I said yesterday, I’m going to give some pros to live in Lithuania today 😉

First, it’s prices.
Comparing to western, northern europe countries, the prices in the east are quite low.
As there are many countries gathered in east, such as Poland, Romania,Bulgaria,Hungry,_20170522_153804

I guess you can travel those countries with low budget 😀 !
I would love to do it someday😊

 

Let’s begin with my expenses from last month to see how much it’s cheap!

・the rent 70euro
・utilities 30euro

・food 65euro
・transportation(bus ticket) 5euro
・mobilephone fee 2euro

In total 172 euro

 

To be honest I was saving money by not buying so much expensive things/food. For example the thing I buy at supermarket is :

Spagetti400g 0.25euro
Rice(not sushi rice, 4 bags) 0.5euro
One loaf of whole grain bread 0.6euro
Cabbage1.5kg 0.10euro
Potato1kg 0.15euro
Tomato1kg 0.90euro
Apple1kg 0.60euro
10Eggs 0.9euro
Meat stuffs are so-so. I sometimes buy sausages witch is 1.3euro for 1kg.

Those prices are so impressive because those are less half of the price you can see in japanese supermarket!

And yes, I do cook everyday, I don’t eat out or take away normally. I bear until I go with my boyfriend or friends so I can enjoy the meal more with them 😆.
About transportation, in Vilnius there are busses everywhere and everyone (locals, students, tourists) uses buss to go somewhere. If you are student, you can get discount and it’s only 5 euro then you can take bus as much as you want for 1 month.
And mobilephone fee, I pay 1-2euro every month.
I use prepaid sim card from PILDYK. You can call and sms as well. I use less 1GB even though I do use internet a lot as “I play pokemon go everyday~~~”😆lol i paid 20 euro for the same amount of internet in Ireland for example!

Well it sounds I always care about money, but not always! I spend much when I need or I want(like traveling), so I should save when I can. 😃
The second pros to live in Lithuania is

because you can see beautiful views with snows!
I think there are much nature in Lithuania. It’s beautiful even without snow as well.
