Midsummer celebrations

June 26, 2017

Hello my lovely readers!

This week has been super busy with our trip to Sweden and then Midsummer celebrations. I would like to share some photos of the different events we attended! The first event was the bonfire in Lohusuu – we arrived in Lohusuu an hour before the bonfire, unpacked and basically went to the party. My husband and my dad had been to Riga for a concert the night before so my dad didn’t have a voice and Joseph was tired haha. But that didn’t stop the first bonfire. We played some games and took part in some competitions like welly throw and used a blowgun. I won the blowgun competition! The kids played some games and we had a nice time chatting to the people of our village. Liina and Lucas joined in on the fun and we headed home for some tea and biscuits. The next morning we visited the Avinurme fayre which was so much fun! We got new strawberry plants and some other bits and bobs. On Friday, we had friends over at the house to have a barbecue and make a bonfire! We played some games, ate great food and did some dances around the bonfire. Lucas taught us a frog dance around the fire! It was hilarious, loved it. For the evening Liina, Lucas, Joseph and I headed to the new cafe in our area, which had a dance night on. Luckily we seen couple of friends there who we could join, as all tables were reserved. It was a good night. It’s amazing how people who say that they do not speak English, speak very good English when they have had a few drinks. On Saturday we decided to take it easy, so played football for two hours and then drove around the tourist spots with our friends. It has been such a busy week/weekend, it is nice to sit here on a Monday morning, enjoy my holidays and just chill in the sunshine.

Hello my lovely readers!

So this week I had the chance to visit Sweden with my colleagues. It was not my first time in Sweden, but I love a bit of Sweden every now and again. We took the cruise to Stockholm and back. We were lucky with good weather and no strong winds to rock the boat. But we totally rocked the boat haha. We had the chance to visit the King’s palace in Stockholm as well as museums and get a taste of the food culture by eating some cinnamon rolls. We also saw the Estonian school in Stockholm. Our tour guide was my lovely friend Liina who lives in Sweden. We walked through Galma Stan and headed to the port by foot. The weather for a walk around Stockholm was perfect.  On the cruise we checked out the midnight shows, first on was the summer of Rock and the other was dedicated to Swedish songs. My friend Kertu was one of the dancers in the group called Dance Factory, they did a really good job. Also the live band was good so we got to dance the night away to some good live music. Here are some photos from our short but cute trip to Stockholm, Sweden.

Jäääär at jõekäär

Hello my lovely readers!

Sorry for the lack of posts this past few weeks. I have been really busy! Today we had an open-air concert at the village where we live. The performer was an Estonian group called Jäääär which means The Edge of Ice. It was definitely a good way to spend a nice summer evening.

Hope you are enjoying the long summer nights.

South of Estonia

June 2, 2017

Hello my lovely readers!

This week was the last week of the school year, so we had a lot of interesting events throughout the week. We finished it off with a road trip to South Estonia. It was absolutely stunning and can’t think of a better way to celebrate the end of the first year of teaching. We had so much fun and got to spend time with the coolest people! When I got back, Joseph surprised me with flowers and a lot of yummy food to celebrate my first year of teaching. What a year it has been.

Hope you all have enjoyed the first days of summer!
