Summary of My Summer

I feel like I’ve been putting off this post just because I don’t want to admit that summer is over but I guess now that I’m in my second week of my Master’s studies, I have to give in. It’s officially fall now. My summer was great though, and I wanted to share some highlights with you:

I read so many amazing books (hopefully I’ll have time to whip up reviews about some them for you guys) during the vacation! I always have to wait for vacations before I can read the books I’ve gotten as a present or bought for myself since we have so much stuff to read for school during the year.

I also ate some of the most delicious stuff during the summer: pancakes (SO MANY PANCAKES!), fruit and salads, delicious grilled salmon, etc. I love food…I can’t help it.

We also went to the beach a lot since we can bike there easily from our house. I love swimming and just reading in the sun so going to the beach was a great way to combine those with exercise.

Now it’s time to get ready for the fall, which is in fact my favorite season although I already feel really swamped with different responsibilities. Hopefully it will be a fun semester though with plenty of exciting new adventures!

Traveling to Tallinn

This week I took a cruise to Tallinn with my boyfriend’s mom who was kind enough to take me there :) I’ve been to Tallinn many times but it still hasn’t lost its charm – especially the Old Town, which is as beautiful as ever. Our hotel was right in the middle of the Old Town so we had all the amazing restaurants and little boutiques nearby.

Our first night we went to a Russian restaurant Troika, which has great traditional Russian foods (the salmon I would recommend to everyone; the restaurant is on the edge of the town square in Old Town). Our hotel breakfast was in a traditional Estonian restaurant that was next to our hotel (St. Petersbourg).

Most of my shopping was done in Viru Keskus, which is a huge mall with tons of fashionable (and cheap) stores. I found some great items from the summer sales.

I will soon be posting more photos from the cruise as well as a haul post so stay tuned!
