Fairytale winter in Helsinki
Where it is good to have a rest in the winter is in Helsinki. Fabulously beautiful city in the winter. Not very cold. A lot of interesting activities for this time of year. We drove in mid-December.
What is Helsinki before Christmas? These are many Christmas markets where you can buy various handmade gifts and souvenirs, Christmas sweets and much more. At this time, in each store discounts reaching up to 70%. The main thing is not to get lost in time visiting the malls. And remember that there are fairs where an admission ticket may be required. And do not forget to visit the legendary Stockmann shopping center. It has everything from products to jewelry. This is where you can get lost for the whole day.
The most important thing is to allocate time and choose when and where to go. We chose light time for visiting museums and attractions, evening time for rest and the last 2 two days instead of rest we were doing shopping. Continue reading
Awesome vacation with friends in Odessa
This spring, I was fortunate enough to spend almost a month on vacation in Odessa, in the capital of humor and the sun. I just parted with the previous job and have not yet got a new job, so I was able to come to South Palmyra for the whole of May. Fortunately, my friends said that I can stay with them for free. Maybe I was lucky, but already in May, my vacation was as resort-like as possible and included bathing and sunbathing, the weather did not differ from the summer, but the influx of tourists was not there yet, because the beaches were as clean as possible. Therefore, I sincerely believe that going to Odessa in May is the best idea if the weather permits, and if you are not cold.

As I said, I stayed with friends, but they, as locals, oriented me to the future, where it is best to stay in the city. Continue reading
