First Christmas mail ๐Ÿ’š

Happy first advent!
Creating Christmas themed mail is definitely one good way to create the cosy Christmas atmosphere ๐ŸŽ„
But first of all...
What is your favourite Christmas song?

Postcrossing tags + penpal letters

Besides travelling I have now found some time to dedicate on writing as well, here are some pictures of the mail I have prepared and sent out recently ๐Ÿ–ƒ

Whole week in Czech Republic (2/2)

 On the way to a cave we walked through quiet forest, saw some poisonous mushrooms and edible berries. These blackberries were good, just a bit sour. 
More and more beautiful views...
 This is the bone church Sedlec Ossuary, where about 60 000 persons rest. And yes, these are their bones. 
It was kind of strange to look at these skeletons and imagine how they belonged to real human beings centuries ago. Who were they? How their lives looked like? What kind of things made them happy? 
Cathedral of St Barbara, who is the main saint of miners. 
 Czechs use their own currency - Czech Koruna. While I still had different coins, I captured them ๐Ÿ’ฐ
Can you guess, which numbers are on the picture?
 I got to try some traditional Czech food like dumplings with jam and their drink Kofola (which is like coca cola, but made by using 30 different herbs). We also went out to eat in a place called Veganland. It is located in Prague and I really recommend visiting it! 
There were many options of foods like vegan pizza or sushi and also vegan buffet, which I preferred. This way I had the chance to try out different dishes. Everything was tasty, my favourite was the eggplant in sauce, yummy!
I had such a great week in Czech and I´m so glad I got to visit so many different places - a mine, a cave, rock city, bone church, national art museum and so on. 
What kind of travellers are you - do you prefer a vacation on the beach, visiting all the cultural places or the combination of both?
Thank you for reading! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Whole week in Czech Republic (1/2)

 On 13th September I got on a plane for the first time. With a stop in Riga I arrived to Prague in the evening. Fortunately friends were already waiting for me in the airport, so we got on a bus and drove to the city center.
 A compulsory picture - made on the Charles Bridge
 Next day we spent walking around in Prague and in the evening went to Mlada Boleslav, from where we travelled to other cities as well: Jiฤรญn, Kutnรก Hora
 Pictures now are not in any order, but you can just enjoy the beauty of different cities of Czech. In Prague we also went to the National Art Museum, but arrived there just one hour before the closure time, so that´s how long we got to be there. One hour wasn´t enough to see it all, at least we got to enjoy some art. The entrance is free for students, so always carry your ISIC or some other card with you, when travelling! 
That kind of landscape - full of mountains - cannot be seen in Estonia...๐Ÿ˜„
These houses are called Son, Daughter and Mother - I guess you understand which one which is ๐Ÿ˜‰
Jiฤรญn - a beautiful small city, where fairytale festivals take place. I imagine it might be wonderful during that time and especially interesting for children :) 
It is always good, when friends take different tastes, this is a good opportunity to try them all ๐Ÿ˜ธ
Have you ever been to Czech? Did any of these places look familiar to you?

Snail mail inspiration

And now go, grab a piece of paper, your best pen and write few lines to a friend, family member, lover or why not to yourself ๐Ÿ˜Š

3/3 Summer trip to Haapsalu

In July I spent a weekend in beautiful Haapsalu, which is a small city, about 90 kms away from Tallinn ๐Ÿš
A yoga festival was held for the 6th time and I decided to volunteer there. 
We were really lucky with the amazing weahter, this is a view from the promenade ๐ŸŒ…
The main stage was outside and some workshops took place inside. For one of them my task was to check the tickets and answer to people´s questions. 
The rest of the time I could take part of other workshops and in the evening enjoy a lovely concert by Sudha. I am very glad I went thtere and got a great experience as a volunteer. In general the festival was so nice and I definitely recommend visiting  it (even if you have never done yoga before) ๐Ÿ˜ธ
Have you ever taken part of a yoga festival? Maybe you participated in some other festival this summer?

2/3 Summer trip to Palanga

At the beginning of July I spent a few days in Lithuania with my family. We started our journey at 7 in the morning and arrived to Palanga almost 12 hours later. 
Next day we walked around and visited an amber museum that is located in a manor that is surrounded by nice park. 
Some little amber figures ๐Ÿ˜Š
Art could be found on streets as well ๐ŸŽจ
On the third day I met my Lithuanian penpal Laura for the first time after 5 years of exchanging letters ๐Ÿ“ง So definitely a memorable day ๐Ÿ˜‰
And then it was time to start the way back home ๐Ÿš˜
As it was a rather short trip, I really should go back some day, have you got any recommendations? I am thinking of visiting Klaipeda, but any other suggestions are very welcome as well ๐Ÿ˜Š
