A sweet escape

I got out of my funk that I've been in for the last couple of weeks. And all it took was a little weekend getaway.

Since it was my sisters and friends birthdays we decided to go to Tallinn again. I love that city. I challenged my memory and it turns out it doesn't suck as mush as I thought it did ;D I actually remembered some places and things from the last time. And we even got everywhere we needed by a bus! which is surprising cause you cannot trust me with these kind of things ;D

Anyway, the weekend was perfect. We used CouchSurfing for accommodation again, only this time it didn't feel like CS. For me it was simply staying at friends house :) Nice talks and couple of drinks at night was just what we needed. Except for Milli Malika. That drink I didn't need at all nor will I ever need it! :D But I'm glad I tried it. Every experience is an experience ;D

I also really enjoyed watching Evelins presentation about her Bucket list. I think it's amazing when you know what you want and you do everything to reach your goals and dreams. So, Evelin, if you're reading this - I will steal a part of your idea! ;D I also want to make such a list so that I have something to reach for. I think this list is what keeps you motivated and that is why I want to try it too. I hope you don't mind. :)  A few things on that list will be similar to yours like countries to visit etc. but the others will include raccoons so they will be completely different ;D

Even if I spent only 24 hours in Tallinn, being there really made me happy and relaxed and for this short period of time I completely forgot about all the problems and stress and just had fun! And it made me realize that life truly can be full of fun and surprises if you let yourself enjoy it :)

And I also wanted to wish you all a little belated Happy Thanksgiving :) 

Have a wonderful day, everyone :)

P.S.-I also promise to catch up with all your amazing blogs. I just haven't had the time to write or read any. :)

  1. I'm glad you snapped out of your funk--life can be so much fun!!

  2. I'm so glad you feel better. Sounds like great fun.


  3. Dear Baiba, a lovely posting! I'm so glad that you're feeling better about life. And I so liked the song that accompanied this posting. Thank you for sharing it. I'd never heard it before.

    I, too, have a bucket list. It's exciting to do and fun to check off the things we do. I hope you have a peace-filled holiday season. Peace.

  4. Yes, I'm a little late here, but I am glad you are feeling better. You are so young your whole life is spread out in front of you, so just go and grab it, enjoy it, and be serious too so you will reach your goals. I never had a bucket list or major goals, but I still managed to have a wonderful life.

  5. Dear Baiba, Thanks for stopping by my blog. I was thinking that maybe you would post something about Christmas traditions in your country. Merry Christmas to you and all the best for the New Year, Inger.
