Ryan is an American living in Kaunas and studying at Vytautas Magnus University. He fancies himself a Hemingway character living abroad without direction and full of romance, but instead falls short with the exception of alcohol consumption and narcissism. He enjoys Lithuania because of his rewarding studies, good friends, and the personal freedom he finds in his day-to-day life. Ryan hopes that you will enjoy the contributions he makes to this blog and encourages any reader to dispute any aspect of his submissions or to contribute additional insight or information. He also assures you that this will be the last time he writes in the third person.
