Shine like you mean it

I like tattoos, but on other people. I am not sure if the next day I’d still be happy with my decision of making a dragonfly on my ankle, let’s say. Temporary tatoos? Well, that’s something I can definitely deal with for a few days. Flash Tattoos Romania – presented me the occasion of adding jewellery on my body in a very elegant way. As nervous as I was at first looking at all those golden shines, it all went very well! The results came perfectly synchronized with my 26th birthday as well. Thank you so much for such a lovely time! Here are the photos ­čÖé

A slice of Romanian wintertime

It’s not often that you get to experience the silence of winter on your own. It’s the combination of frosty air with sunny crisp shines that somehow transform the landscape into something quite magical. Well, since I have had the privilege of experiencing such delights, it seemed a pity not to share a glimpse of that with you. Here are some of my moments captured while on the road through Transylvania.

Happy Saint Nicholas!

I hope you were good kids this year, dear people, and that this morning you discovered sweets and treats from Santa’s cousin ­čÖé

In Romania, the tradition is that children clean up their winter boots the night before St Nicholas and carefully place them close to the door. If they behaved the year before, they will find chocolate, candy and any little toys that could fit in the boots. Unlike Santa, Saint Nicholas (Moș Nicolae) is never seen by kids. They have to be asleep when he comes at night.

It’s the first year that I am not close to my sister on the holidays. Sorry, sis. I hope that the short visit in London and the great time while sightseeing was a wonderful present of itself. The joy should last till Christmas Eve when we will meet again. Can’t wait!

Meanwhile in Tallinn, the third ESN trip to Lapland is about to begin. It will surely be the coldest of them all. The weather forecast showes -24 Celsius, so hang on to those gloves as we will cross the Arctic Circle. First we’ll take the ferry to Helsinki and then the bus for a many-hour trip to Rovaniemi. I hope that the sky will be clear so that I could see the magical Aurora Borealis.To avoid further confusion, yes, I will see Santa, so tell me what you want for Christmas and maybe I can put in a good word for you.

A slice of heaven. Haapsalu and Nova

Every day I love Estonia more. Although it is playing hard to get because of the lower temperatures here, we have been blessed with sun and warmish wind. Add the forests and the beautiful scenery to this and it somehow gets to sweep you off your feet before realizing you are in the danger of falling in love.“She’s got you high and you don’t even know it”.

Another great weekend has passed and I am grateful we have done nothing else than enjoying each others’ company while admiring nature. It was a well deserved resting time. Mari, our Estonian coordinator, cooked for us in Nova and we all were so very happy with everything. She is such a wonderful person, I am glad I know her. She had also organised a lot of fun activities including this photo competition that we very much enjoyed because we played in teams. Each group had to present a creative way of some given ideas (the pisa tower, a crime scene).

Haapsalu? I think I could die happy here. Otherwise, it is the place i would like to come every summer just for enjoying the view. I don’t know if it was just because of the lovely weather or the diversity of clouds showing off on the deep blue sky, but this place impressed me.

Passing by the sea, wind softly blowing through my hair, I wanted to remember everything accurately. A white tower, swans, blue water, white clouds, green grass, skyline, laughing friends. A.D.H.D. Calm down. Breath in, breath out. Live.

My instinct upon arriving to such lovely places is to take photos, or start recording in any way the good time. Just keep it safe. Take a panorama. Try to get the best light, figure out when people start moving and use the best moment to immortalize a good composition for the photography.

Keeping memories is really all that I do. I’m still wondering about what I will be ‘when I grow up’. The thing is, no one else could ever understand your moment. One could only get a hint and maybe imagine it. He will then portray himself standing in the beautiful scenery. A second, maybe two. He takes what he needs from the picture and moves on. And on. And on.

Devouring beauty.
