Trip to Saint-Petersburg

Hello hello! Guys, you’re probably wondering why I haven’t posted for so long.Or you’re not… (I genuinely hope you didn’t notice my absence :D)

In my defense, I was on a vacation.Am I supposed to write a blog on vacation? This question popped up in my mind every time I got a notification from WP.

Now, a little bit about my trip.This year my mom and I decided not to leave our home country, that’s why our destination was Saint-Petersburg.Do you like this city or have you at least heard of it?

Here are some of the photos I took during our trip:

The city of Saint-Petersburg is famous for its architecture, that’s why most of my photos show various buildings.

The sea was too cold (as well as the weather) ! I was so frustrated at first, because our previous vacations mostly consisted of swimming.But, fortunately, in Saint-Pe there’re many other things to do apart from swimming in the sea.


During our stay, I made notes.I bought a notebook and started writing down everything that seemed unusual, weird or interesting.This is indeed a good idea! I’m so glad I managed to force myself to find time and write (instead of, for example, watching TV)

Here’s  the list of TOP-3 things I found unusual in SPb :

  1. A LOT of foreigners. I had no idea that people from other countries visit Russia! I’ve heard people speak Spanish, English, Italian and Chinese (or Japanese, I can’t tell the difference between these two). That’s so weird!
  2. People are too slow and relaxed.It seemed like everyone had nothing to do, and was slowly walking along the streets and enjoying the day.Even when it was raining, people didn’t speed up.We found that a bit annoying as it was difficult to make our way through that slow crowd.
  3. A lot of cafes, restaurants, pubs, etc. It was such a pleasant feature of the city! We used to have lunch in a cafe, and to our amazement, there was a huge number of cafes to choose from.

That’s it for now.Tell me about your best vacation in comments! I would love to read all of them!))

Travel tag ❤

Incredible BeaFree has nominated everyone for the Travel tag, and I just couldn’t turn down such an opportunity! Check out her blog, by the way! It is worth it))


Since my early childhood traveling has been something special for me.Other kids took it for granted, ’cause every family goes on a vacation in summer.But my attitude to it is rather different.Having fun, beach bumming and all the lazy stuff you can possibly do on a vacation is NOT what I travel for.I want to broaden my horizons, acquire some knowledge, and get to know our huge world.I never waste time when I’m abroad – my schedule is rather tight because I want to see as many sights as possible.


WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE THAT YOU HAVE VISITED?

I think it’s Turkey.I’ve been there twice, actually.You don’t need Visa when traveling there, which is a big advantage.But I loved it because of beautiful nature and picturesque sceneries!!))

WOULD YOU RATHER GO ON A CITY HOLIDAY OR A BEACH HOLIDAY?

Like I said, I’m not a fan of beach bumming, so definitely CITY HOLIDAY! Cafes, shops, sights, attractions, parks – all these things are situated in the city, not on the beach, right?

MY TOP THREE HOLIDAY ESSENTIALS ARE:

  1. Phone – in case I want to take a photo or make a call
  2. Money
  3. Hat – because I don’t want to get a sun stroke

ARE YOU AN OVER PACKER OR AN UNDER PACKER?

Definitely an over packer! I literally take all my clothes with me.All of them have equal rights to travel with me!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT GOING ON HOLIDAYS?

Forgetting all the problems that I had back home and enjoying the moment!

WOULD YOU RATHER GO ON HOLIDAYS WITH FAMILY OR FRIENDS?

I’ve always traveled with my family, so I’d like to try doing it with friends.But, you know.. Sometimes I notice that I get tired of my friends (even the closest ones) having spent the whole day with them.What if it’s the same on a vacation? I never get tired of my family though, maybe that’s  because I’m used to them.
