Late autumn vibes in Bucharest

I met a friend. We walked around. I met a cat. He owned a bike.

I met some kids doing their homework on the streets.

A lot of ‘I’s were flashed along this journey. Don’t worry, though, my soul was rather stormy.

I met a stranger who kept me well outside of danger.

Thank you. ♥

Bucharest. I live here. I love it.

That Golden Side of Tallinn

I’m always on the lookout for discount flight tickets to Tallinn, but unfortunately Bucharest and the Estonian capital are not connected through a direct route so the costs are not a bargain.

I had the great privilege of living in Tallinn for more than half a year and it grew very dearly on me. As winter creeps in, I become more melancholic, I think. I started remembering little details that bring me back one year ago. An alley with golden leaves instantly sent me to Kadriorg Park. Decided to share some photos with you.

A bit of that Tallinn autumn still lingers in my mind.

I used to walk by this painted wall and think of how the artist might have come up with the idea. Boring rainy day in Tallinn might lead to playing with pets since human companionship is rather scarce. Estonians are quite loners.

Welcome, November.

Home is Where My Granny is

Just another sunny Saturday at my granny’s place. Autumn is here. Patterns, colours, good feelings – also here. Summer’s long gone, yet parts of it still linger on my finger tips. I guess it’s the reward of autumn, it lures you with various tastes and decides it’s time for you to go into a deep emotional state. One you’ve been neglecting for the past three months. Melancholia. Grounded. Enjoying the muddy reward of hard work.
Blessed to still have a caring grandmother who looks after and makes sure an entire household with animals, crops, and vines blooms. She is an angel. And you can see her kindness in these colors.

Goood morning!

Let’s forget about the changing weather, the coldness of the autumn that is slowly crawling in and just keep on smiling.

I find it interesting that if you fake a smile, your brain still reacts to the movement of the facial muscles and ultimately, your smile becomes real. Charles Darwin first posed the idea that emotional responses influence our feelings in 1872. “The free expression by outward signs of an emotion intensi­fies it” he believed. Mimicry. I’ll give it a try. Fake it till you make it, they say. They might be right.

Vimeo to the rescue. Let the good vibes flow.

I’m young

And I love it. I am currently living in Tallinn, Estonia and I am making the best of my time here. One semester in the Baltic Film and Media School and Institute of Communication in Tallinn University is really spicing my school days up. Getting to know Estonia, Estonians, learning Spanish in the flat and maybe a bit of Russian when going out couldn’t be more welcomed in my life.

Youthful company, new friends, multiculturalism, it doesn’t just sound amazing, it actually is that.

Even though it’s just a rainy Friday out here, helping Lili pack for her Stockholm weekend getaway, sharing some strong green tea with Miguel, small chit chats in Spanish with Cristian and subtle irony in the kitchen with Zaida, Czech flatmate who really knows how to bake, can really light up one’s day. Who needs sun, when you’ve got bright friends? 😀

I am blessed. Although my thoughts keep flying to my beloved sister, my family or some friends, I keep my spirits high with great company and golden autumn walks.
