About Us


Who we are

Hi, we are Vytas and Giedre, a thirty something couple who are into photography and good food. And there is nothing we love more than travelling and exploring new places. We hate crowded beaches, but we don’t mind being stuck in a packed local bus somewhere in Asia or queuing for great street food. Hope you join us on our travels!

What we do

Places Happen was created as a visual platform to inspire people to discover and explore exciting places around the world. We want to give you a glimpse of our adventures and experiences though photos and bring you along on our journeys – from the world’s most iconic places to hidden jungle paths and secret corners of our neighborhood.

We believe in the saying that “A picture is worth a thousand words”. And while some words are needed to set the scene, we aim to paint the picture through photography.

Our project is open to everyone. You are welcome to share places that inspire you – whether it’s the streets of your hometown, a hike through your favorite forest trail or an ancient civilization you explored while traveling.
