SPB, Day 3: The Home of Happiness

Monday, October 28, 2013

Have you seen previous posts about Saint Petersburg? On our first day we were feeling the excitement of a discovery, on the second one we wandered through museums and cathedrals. Our third and the last day in SPB was relaxed and really nice, because we didn't have any organized trips and we already knew the center so we could just enjoy it without any rush or fuss. Plus, we had a great weather, and I don't know if it's just me, or everyone seems to be happier when the sun shines?!

SPB, Day 2: A Little Bit of Culture

Friday, October 25, 2013

As this blog is all about sharing nice things, I'll kindly ask you to click here and listen as you watch the photos.

This is The Nutcracker, ballet by P.I. Tchaikovsky, which I saw on this second day in Saint Petersburg - also the very first ballet I have ever seen! When we booked the Saint Petersburg trip, it was announced there was a possibility to watch ballet show there. Well, one doesn't simply go to Russia and miss this, right? I'm so glad I did this - now I know I like ballet. :) 

SPB, Day 1: Wires And More Wires

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Sorry for so many photos and sorry for the extended use of words "beauty" and "beautiful"!

It's been more than a week since I'm back from this trip, and I finally stole some time from myself to publish a new post.

A Quick Hello

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to apologize for not posting my Saint Petersburg adventures so far - I've been really busy, but I keep on struggling with numerous photos and I hope I will publish the post (or posts!) during the next week! 

Anyway, in the photo above you can see what happened since my last post. Yep. It's mid-October, and I'm not joking. Also: 

Living in the Land of Santa

Thursday, October 10, 2013

If you know me personally and after I had told you I was moving to Finland you didn't ask "Oh, you're going to Santa's, aren't you?", then what's wrong with you?

Just joking, but this was basically everyone's reaction. And that's what most people from Serbia know about Finland: cold. North. Far away. Santa. Reindeer.

To the Baltics

Monday, October 7, 2013

If you've read my last post, you probably noticed that I referred to Helsinki as only a part of my moving weekend. Well, yes - that was because on Sunday we went to Tallinn. :) It was completely out of the blue - the night before we were chatting and having tea at Dušica's, and then a friend of hers contacted her on Facebook, telling her that he had moved to Tallinn. And this is how the story went on:
Me: "I was thinking of visiting Tallinn when I move to Joensuu."
Dušica: "Would you like to do it tomorrow?"
Me: "Tomorrow?!"
Dušica: "Well, sure. It only takes two hours by the ferry and it's not at all that expensive."
Me: "Why not! Let's go!"

Helsinki, Finland: Moving to Another Country Can Be Fun!

Saturday, October 5, 2013

I've never thought I would have said the thing from the title, but it can! Luckily for me, I didn't go from Berlin to Joensuu (my current home in Finland) directly, but had a layover in Helsinki at a friend's. As one of my fellow EMCL students said: "You have friends everywhere!" Yes I do, and I am most likely to write a post once on this wonderful science center in Serbia where I met most of them, and most of my bestest friends in the world!

Berlin vol. 2

Thursday, October 3, 2013

The past week was a huge mess so that's why I'm running late. But when I say mess here, I mean it in a good way. :) We had an exam back in Potsdam, then there was my birthday, then I had to pack as this first month in Germany was over, and say goodbye to all my Berlin friends, then I had a super-duper weekend about which I'm yet to show & tell, and finally I moved to a completely empty room in Finland and had to buy furniture and other stuff - which I managed to do, and now I live in a really neat place.
