Vilnius, Lithuania - Day 60: Making new friends
We met Ivona yesterday on the train from Sestokai to Vilnius. Isaac kept jumping up on his seat and peering over her shoulder prompting us to start a conversation. Perhaps the nicest part of a journey like this is the opportunity to make new friends.
Ivona invited us to her home for dinner in Vilnius this evening with no qualms of us being strangers that she had just met on a train.
We had a lovely dinner and the fantastic company of her husband and multi-lingual children. Ivona is one of those interesting people who can talk passionately on just about any subject under the sun - world music, Montessori education, travel destinations, languages....
I sincerely hope we get to meet and hang out again.
