Riga and Vilnius operas: BOTH! 行程頭二齣歌劇!

Posted on

Vilnius Opera utilizes a fancy system for patrons to book tickets.  Unfortunately an online customer can only pay by making a transfer from a Lithuanian bank account.  Otherwise, pay cash at the box office, which is of course located in Vilnius, Lithuania.  However, it’s imperative I see Tchiakovsky’s Eugene Onegin!!! The payment system comes with an online assistance feature, although that doesn’t help much in this case.  我可是超想看《尤金奧涅金》~不然我去Vilnius幹嘛~(正解:觀光啊)

不過今天(由於刪去Estonia的Rakvere、Sillamae、Narva,必須)重新處理波羅的海三小國和波蘭的安排時,發現雖然我本來不太想看Riga的Don Giovanni,但時間往前移二天的結果是我可以看5/10的Aida呢。是沒很想看這種戲,因為很怕製作欠佳和/或歌手欠佳。仍然寫email去問,因為Riga Opera的購票網頁有問題,結果 Read the rest of this entry

According to 大食OL on the aforementioned forum (背包客棧),

用家心得: 如果閣下曾經住過斯洛文尼亞Ljubljana的Hostel Celica或瑞典斯德哥爾摩的Langholmens監獄旅館的話, 請將住在這兩地的「愉快」記憶抹去 – Karosta Prison Hostel純粹是給一些想有「另類體驗」及追求「刺激」(其實我不覺得)的旅客居住的地方, 在閣下決定入住之前, 絕對要有以下心理準備: – Read the rest of this entry
