Labas from Italy! :it:
I would love to attend your meeting but it looks difficult because I have already planned another trip a week later.
I visited Lithuania in 2011 and fell in love with this country. :heart:
I will see if I can organise a short trip for this meeting but I am not so sure at the moment.
I would love to receive a meeting card if anybody is willing to swap.
Have fun, anyway!


I will be glad to exchange )))

Greeting from Hong kong.
I’d love to swap. :smiley:

@CYAN_Y I would like swap with you :wink:
