From October 18 till October 19 we had our department annual meeting.
Our department consists of some little groups, which covers many countries: Africa, Poland, Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia and other.
Meeting was located in Lithuania, Druskininkai in Spa Hotel. To get there in time and quite fresh we decided to go in Vilnius the day before and stay in hotel and then in the morning after the breakfasts go to Druskininkai.
From Vilnius to Druskininkai something about 200 km. Trip was borring, so I had some time to sleep. It was litle bit raining when we came in the right place. We came earlier so we had time to register in hotel and put our bags into the rooms. I was deviding my room with my colegue.
