About me

Hi! I am Asta! I am a philologist and a philocalist to the heart's core. Here I share things that I consider being aesthetic and fantastic!

Lithuania is full of manors that I am eager to explore. Some of them are in ruins, others are coming back to life with intensive care and attention of their new owners. Of course, there are those "in between" - abandoned and neglected they start to loose their splendor and attract all sorts of guests. Today I took my spouse by the hand, done my (very recently made) historical costume, and we went to explore Vyžulioniai (or Vyžulėnai) manor that is situated just around 40 km from Vilnius.
