Because of you, my daydream has warm colours.
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.
If a couple of days ago I was still admiring the golden autumn leaves in Kadrioru Park, nature gave me a real cold wake up call this morning.
For the first time in minu kalis* Tallinn, I realise that winter comes sooner here and it will be stronger than anywhere else I have experienced it.
Good times await. Keep warm, stay joyful! 😀
*Estonian for my darling, my dear
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.
