I just remember the beginning of summer, the feeling of having much time, the perception that everything is still ahead. Yesterday, I work up and calender indicated August, the last summer month. Things were slow and intensive at the same time, unpredictable, and surprising. Things didn't necessarily go as planned, yet, there were new interesting… Continue reading Hello August!
I am keeping up the series of flashbacks. This time, I have a story for you from my childhood. I was in the first grade. Everything was absolutely new to me, new environment, new activity, and new people. There were so many things to learn. Among them, there was an issue of handling the attraction… Continue reading Love Letter
This story happened at least 14 years ago, if I remember correctly. I was young, and I was still learning how to communicate with men. At some point, I was very tough and even rude if I did not like the guy who approached me. My friends gave me some feedback on that, justifying it… Continue reading ‘If It’s a Destiny, We’ll Meet Again’
Some memories popped up, and I want to share them with you. I often write about my trips in a very positive way as if it is a fairy tale, where everyone is kind, sweet, and helpful. Just the world of unicorns, princesses, and cute dragons, isn't it? Let's be objective, reality always has two… Continue reading ‘Excellent’ Service on Malta
I continue my 'philosophical' series by speculating why we actually blog. My day was not that productive, not much done and achieved. After some struggles, I thought 'Damn it, I gonna do something nice for myself, something I really like and enjoy.' And here I am writing a blog about blogging. I like expressing myself,… Continue reading Why do people blog?
Finally, I can boast about good weather in Finland! The last two weeks were great, the sun was shining, and the temperature was on average 20 °C. So, on one of the days, I decided to have a brief trip to Ruissalo, probably the biggest island next to Turku. I love being by the water,… Continue reading First Summer Days in Finland
Obviously, I am switching from being a travel blogger into a life blogger. In this post, I want to discuss the child- parent relationship. Indeed, a tough topic. On the other hand, I am not making a history as the generation problem has always been there. Parents do love their children, and I won't argue… Continue reading The Trouble with Russian Parents
Lockdown was a challenging period for me because I like to be out and surrounded by people. Instead, I had to stay home and entertain myself as much as I could. There was so much time to re-evaluate life and to think of what is really important. Yet, too much thinking is never good either.… Continue reading Mid-Age Crisis Plan
I have received a notification of the anniversary. Exactly 5 years ago, I started my blog. Actually, I was pushed by my friends who said that I made nice pictures and had interesting stories to tell. They believed in me way more than I believed in myself. Yet, I decided to give it a try.… Continue reading 5 Years on WordPress
As there is not much to share in terms of trips for understandable reasons, I have decided to make a post about a particular life occasion. At the beginning of this month, my brother got his first child. This event has literally changed the status of everyone in our family. My brother became a father,… Continue reading I Became an Aunt
