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
Last year I devoted the big part of my writing to my childhood memories of the 90s Russia. So what about the country today? Russia is very unstable in political, economic, and social aspects. Everybody knows that, and I don't see any point rediscovering the common sense all over again. Instead, I will take you… Continue reading Moscow by a Semi-foreigner
Should we make some conclusions regarding this year? Do you usually sum up the passed year? Do you make plans for the upcoming year? Please, write in the comment section! When it comes to me, I have to say that I did not really make either any conclusions or upcoming plans. I was pathetically moving… Continue reading Happy New Year!
Here is the last but one post on the 90s Russia. 90s definitely brought a lot of diversity in all possible senses of this word. I don't think I am able to fit even 1/100 in this post, yet, there will be some overview on music and movies. First, let's have a flash back to… Continue reading Music and Movies in 90s Russia
Let's move from frauds to severer things. Today, I will write about crimes. To begin with, I was way to far from it, and all my knowledge on this particular topic comes from TV. Watching news is never fun, not now, not back then. I clearly stayed away from TV as much as could, still… Continue reading Crimes in 90s Russia
Hello everyone! How did the autumn start? As most of you expressed interest towards my memories of growing up in the 90s Russia, I am starting a series of posts related to this topic.

Yesterday, August 25, is exactly 10 years of me being in Finland. In 2009, I arrived to this country being extremely naive and scared of everything. I could not even imagine that there can be such a safe place, where you can freely walk in the late evening, where you can loose your purse and… Continue reading 10 Years in Finland. Conclusions.
