#Blizzard2016

New York City was eaten by the blizzard on Jan. 23, 2016. When people were encouraged to stay inside their home, I went outside to depict the natural forces.

 

The beauty of working on the shore…

…is that you get to see the magnificent ocean every time you go to work, have a break, or walk back home.

Sunset

“Nobody of any real culture, for instance, ever talks nowadays about the beauty of sunset. Sunsets are quite old fashioned. To admire them is a distinct sign of provincialism of temperament. Upon the other hand they go on.”

Bansko

I went snowboarding for the first time! Details are in the next post.

On the way to Bulgaria

A flight from Moscow, Russia to Sofia, Bulgaria.

Up The Hill

Hello, everyone! I’m back; haven’t been here for almost 2 months. I’ve been so busy. That was a good break from blogging that  was necessary for me.

For now, here are some pictures I took when I went up the hill in the city I live in (which is Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria).

Into the Woods

Went biking into the woods with my friend Max. Here’s why I love Bulgaria.

Vyborg Pt1

I’m back! 🙂 That was a tough week, but I loved it. Got so many surprises for you! But, first of all, how have you been?

So, you probably know that I love to travel and this summer I happened to visit Vyborg, a city in Russia that used to belong to Finland. It has a very rich, interesting history; and the city itself is amazing.

“The Hanseatic city lies in the boundary zone between the East Slavic/Russian and Finnish/Scandinavian worlds and has changed hands several times in history, most recently in 1944 when it was retaken by the Soviet Union from Finland during World War II.”

Centuries ago Vyborg was used as a fort. Vyborg Castle,  medieval fortress that was built in 13th century, is still in the city and remains Russia’s only fully-preserved monument of Western European medieval military architecture. Vyborg is a really beautiful city. Because it used to belong to Finland, Vyborg looks exactly like any Finn city: old, colorful houses, narrow, cozy streets, little cafes where you can warm up in a cold, rainy day, sipping hot coffee with a blueberry bagel. I spent only one day in Vyborg with my nephew Kate, but that day was really one of its kind, an unforgettable experience.

As always, it all started on the road…

Look how beautiful this is. Cones. A piece of art.

 

That’s a 13th century Vyborg’s Castle. About it and many other things I will tell you in the next post.

Crow

What a silly crow. Dropped a nut. And then flew away 🙂
