Spring took over

Hello everyone,

I haven’t been posting lately, since school got pretty busy and my graduation period started two weeks ago. But after all is done I want to get back to blogging, maybe change things up a little bit. But for now I’ll leave you with a few photos I took today and then I’m off for yet more studying!

I hope you’re all having a great day!

WHAT?! Is it fall again??

WHAAAAAT

WHAAAAT

I have to admit that when I was growing up (to specify, when I was a teenager), I hated fall. I actually hated winter and spring as well. I always wanted summer. And in the summer I complained that it’s too hot. “Girls -.-” 😀 Anyway, during the last few years I’ve been realizing that there’s something fun and beautiful about every season. And the fall brings sweater-weather and colorful leaves everywhere around! I went out today to take some photos. I didn’t get to go any more beautiful places, even though I know a few, since I knew I had to be back soon to study. But hopefully I’ll get some good shots still this year.

Anyway, here’re a few from today. It’s no special place, but it’s beautiful to me. Because those places carry memories in them. I grew up playing on that field, in elementary we used to go pick the dog rose fruit and made bracelets and necklaces out of it, or picked the leaves and created something out of them. So, do you like them? 🙂

Hardcore travellers

If I could travel back in time and give an advice to myself, it’d probably be: “Check if there’s good connections between your flight and trains before you order it.” Our (my and Benjam’s) journey back to Czech Republic from Finland was quite an experience.

On Thursday morning we woke up around 10. It was time to get ready to go back. We packed our bags, went on some last minute coffee “dates” with friends and then we were just waiting for our train. At midnight Benjam’s mom drove us to the train station and at 0:44 our journey officially begun. I love travelling and sleeping on the train, but if there’s a drunk boy behind you having weird sounds and throwing up it immediately becomes less pleasent to be there (Ew. I hate those kind of people!).Since it was a night train we had to suffer longer than usual – for about 7 hours.

On Friday morning we arrived to the Helsinki trainstation, put our luggage in some locker and went for a walk around Helsinki. With a sleepless night it’s not so much fun to walk around the place but it’s at least better than sitting at a trainstation. At 3 in the afternoon we took a bus to the airport and waited for another 4 hours to get on our plane. At half past 8 in the evening we were in Prague, took a bus to the trainstation there and locked our bags again.

We went for a short walk around Prague, and after that around maybe 1 in the night (Saturday already!), happy that we will soon be able to sleep a bit on some bench on the trainstation we came there and.. it was CLOSED!!! We went to ask the guard and he said it’s closed until 3. Apperantly they close it because of the homeless people that come there and there were no trains in the night. We saw other people sitting outside on benches, waiting, so we sat too. We were freezing on a bench for about 2 hours and when they finally opened we went to sit inside. For some reason it was really cold there and so we were freezing for 2 more hours. When the first cafeteria opened we went to sit there. After that we picked our stuff up from our locker and went to get on our train. Oh how I love the RegioJet trains. If everything went wrong on our trip so far, that train was like a blessing. 😀 You come in, they welcome you, you get comfy leather seats, much better (and also MUCH cheaper than in Finland), they offer you coffee, tea, apple juice, newspaper, etc. Oh, I almost forgot the wifi connection. It takes about 3 hours to get where we needed and I couldn’t sleep on the train for some reason. When we arrived in Ostrava we had to wait for some time still before our friend came to pick us up. When we arrived at Benjam’s home we gave each others stuff back (it was quite tricky to fit all of our stuff with weight limit of 20kg/person), went to the store and had some food. I then slept for a bit over one hour and then we went for a birthday party. I got to bed at maybe 10PM. On Saturday. I woke up on Thursday morning, remember? 😀

Here are a few photos from our “hardcore” trip.

Birthday surprise!

DSC07392

My 19th birthday is coming up quite soon, and so Benjam decided to “give” me my birthday present some days earlier, when we’re still in Finland. I knew we were gonna go somewhere but I had absolutely no idea where, until the very last moment of a 2,5 hour drive to the Ähtäri Zoo! 

Why do you take a 19 year old to the zoo? Well, the whole summer in Finland I’ve really wanted to see a moose and a bear. Not necessarily meet them (!), but at least see them. I unfortunately didn’t get to see them and so my amazing boyfriend decided to fulfill my wish and make me see them. I’ve seen a female moose and a baby moose before in a zoo, but not the male moose. And I’ve also seen bears in zoos when I was small, but as far as I can remember, they were mostly polar bears. 

I was excited like a little kid when we were walking through the zoo. Not because the animals would be so cool, I’ve seen majority of them before, but because I got to spend a great day with the best boyfriend in the world! 

The animals though were cool as well. I’ve for example never seen a snow leopard before. It was beautiful. And when we went to see the bears, one of them walked like half a meter around us – it was so cool! Wouldn’t want to accidentaly bump into that in the woods though! 😀

Here’s just a few photos from the trip – enjoy!
