A few weeks go when I had my first proper days off, from school, from work, from everything, I decided to escape the city and allow myself a little spa break under the picturesque pines of Eastern Estonia. As my dad often visits the area for work and usually stays at Toila Spa Hotel, then that particular place was an obvious choice for our little overnight holiday. It’s not the fanciest of places, but it does the trick.  Not only is it reasonably affordable –…Continue Reading “I Had A Spa Holiday And So Should You”

This post was supposed to be about the stunning architecture and gorgeous parks of Paris. I wanted to write how I simply had to wear a striped top and red lips in the French capital, because I’m the biggest lover of all clich├ęs (and the only things missing were a baguette under my arm and a snazzy French beret). I would have mentioned how Paris has that something special that no other city I’ve been to has, the je ne sais quoi that makes visitors…Continue Reading “About Paris”

Last week’s trip to Paris (How was this only last week by the way, it feels like a month ago!) was the first one, I think, where I made more video clips than scenic photos. Usually, my travel albums (digital, of course), are full of architectural gems and pretty parks, not awkward clips of me talking to a camera. I feel that I’m getting more and more used to the art of vlogging, at least I’ve got over my shyness of walking on the street…Continue Reading “My Parisian Vlog”

Bonjour! I didn’t advertise it here on the blog too much (actually only gave one little clue), but this Tuesday a few Erasmus friends and I hopped on a six-hour-bus from Utrecht to spend two and a half glorious days in Paris! It was the first time in the city of love and light for all of us, so we made the most of our central AirBnb apartment and spent the days walking around, discovering all the tourist sites and exploring different neighbourhoods. Keep your…Continue Reading “Golden Leaves In Paris”

Antwerp is a ridiculously gorgeous city and those 15 euro bus tickets were the best thing I’ve spent money on during my time in Utrecht. Coming from the far away Nordic land of Estonia, I can’t really wrap my head around how simple it is to go from one country to another and from one picture-perfect city to another here in Central Europe. (*puts on her best country girl face*)  As a tourist destination, I totally recommend Antwerp over Brussels, if you ever feel like…Continue Reading “Postcards From Antwerp (And A New Vlog!)”

The title kind of says it all, no? This might not be as exciting for you English-speaking guys, but I decided to try my hand at vlogging and on Monday, took my camera to school with me, to show my friends, my family and my lovely blog readers a bit of my everyday life here in the Netherlands. So if you’re feeling like hearing what Estonian sounds like, want to see a bit of gorgeous Utrecht or know  how I react when the neighbour’s cat…Continue Reading “My First Ever Vlog!”

As promised, a few pretty snaps from my Wednesday in Amsterdam! To be honest, we didn’t do anything noteworthy, except walk around the canals and just get to know the city, so that when we go back, we’d know where to go and what to do. It was kind of a get-to-know trip, if you wish, since neither me nor my Finnish travel companion had done any research whatsoever.  So the first thing we did was hop on a sightseeing boat and spent an hour…Continue Reading “Postcards From Amsterdam”
