I’m back again in Vilnius after 3 days back in Copenhagen – and the weather has now changed in to snow… did I forget my boots?? yeah!
Anyway its gonna be good to see Thomas and Bo from the 1.Q Consult board again – have some good meetings and of course join the Julefrokost by ‘the Danish Club’ in Vilnius… pretty stange travelling to Vilnius for a Danish style Xmas dinner.

What’s ‘Skambutis’?

October 23rd, 2007 | Posted by Niels Klintø in FUN | Travel - (0 Comments)

Seing this advertisement I learned a new Lithuanian word… not really sure what to use it for or what it means, but I do think it sound a bit funny and it gives some wierd associations…

Is it something like ‘shame’ = skam (at least in Danish..) – so Skambutis will be ‘Shame on you’? probably because the girls talks to much in her mobile… Skambutis to her! 😉

(ouch, sure I wont be welcome by my Lithuanian friends anymore…)

Walking around in the beautilful old town of Vilnius I suddenly find the secret weapon of the Lithuanian men – the weapon that for ages and still in Lithuania keeps the women at home in the kitchen (and the bad foreignes away)….
Secret weapon of lithuanian men
(or maybe it helps the women keep the men from the Absinth…  I will research a bit next time I’m in Vilnius….)

….. and Benjamin and I was there in December 2002!
It was such a shock to read today that at least 8 people drowned in the Nam Talu cave in the beautiful Khao Sok National Park in Thailand. I remember that Benjamin and I have been talking quite often about that Nam Talu cave trek, and we usually mention it as close to the most wild/risky thing we have ever done – we were guided to the Nam Talu cave by a Thai kid not older than 18 years old and the driver of the boat and both didnt speak that good English. On our 2 hours walk we also discovered that we only had one good torch and one small one, so 2 torches for 4 guys… and the guide told us that the cave trek would be aound 1 hour, but if it started raining the Nam Talu cave would be filled within 20 minutes… HMMM – and it DID rain from the morning…. anyway the guide did look up into the sky and decided that it was safe to enter and the we stumbled into the dark…
The cave was very interesting – we saw big spiders, lots of bats hanging from the roof, huge beautiful limestones and small waterfalls – and at one point the guide took my small backpack and crawled on the walls while the 3 of us swam down a small waterfall and out to a plateau…. in fact very nice in the heavy heat…
We came out again and took the 2 hours walk back to the station and then the 2 hours boat trip… and we both agreed that the Nam Talu cave in Khao Sok National Park was really a great but also very risky trek – now I can really feel it after the bad news and I do feel sorry for those poor people…  so sad! The safety just isnt good enough!
Btw I called Benjamin an hour ago and asked him to tell me which thing he remember as one of the most risky we did…  and yes, he mentioned exactly the Nam Talu cave trek in Khao Sok National Park…

Mostly for people from Lao or?

I guess its about time I start finding some of the pictures from my Thailand trip back in August and do some serious blogging…

One of first pictures I stumbled upon was this drunk guy (he gotta be drunk) in Khao San road testing his look in this Loa ‘hat’… he gotta be kidding…  or is it just me finding it amusing but not really his style?  😉

Btw Khao San road is full of people trying to see you all kind of ‘crap’, but still no excuse… but good fun!

Per Klix is superior in Tech

September 29th, 2007 | Posted by Niels Klintø in Tech | Travel - (0 Comments)

The other day Per Klixbüll showed he was ‘the man’ when it comes to news in the IT-business and now he just told me that he’s the lucky owner of a Sony PlayStation 3 with the cool game ‘The Elder Scrolls – Oblivion’….  damn it..  and the only game consol I ever had was a PHILIPS VIDEOPAC G7000 back in the 1980’ies with a lousy copy of Pacman called ‘KC Munchkin’.
btw the PHILIPS VIDEOPAC G7000 had an Intel 8048 CPU with the impressive 1,78 MHz speed, 1 KB ROM, 256 bytes RAM, screen resolution of 128 x 64 and 8 colours…
Per, you rule!  but I do think about upgrading to a WII someday…

In the middle of arranging a new trip to Vilnius for the friends…  the date will be 23.-25. November and I have Christian Hartvig to help with the planning this time…
Do I need to tell that private Poker tournament, good food and drinks will be on the ‘agenda’?
