My beloved country ♥

Hello everyone! :)
As I've finally returned home and copied all photos to my computer, I can start writing new posts in my blog :) Actually, I'm not in a mood now, after Kolka I have some kind of depression [I want to return to nature, sea, playing volleyball & all those fantastic people], so to change it my first post will be about Finland ♥ I was in Helsinki on 23/24 July, these were two AWESOME days of my life :) I went there, cause I found out that Red Bull will organize a street show [Red Bull Show Run], and there will be Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastien Loeb.
How could I miss a chance of seeing my favourite F1 & rally driver ever, person, who I adore since 2001? I finished all my works at Kolka faster, persuaded my groupmates to answer practice work earlier than other groups, went to Riga, bought tickets [I was running around like crazy that day] and at the evening went to Tallinn with my mom :)
Arrived there at 6 a.m. and went around the city. Tallinn is very beautiful, especially its old part, I was there in winter, too, but in summer I enjoyed it much more :)
Beautiful view ^.^
Shrek, lol :D
After this short walk around, we went to our ferry and after few hours already were at Helsinki ^.^ Mom really wanted to know why I adore Finland so much and first things she saw in Helsinki weren't as good as she imagined [of course, as we were at ferry terminal], so we went to hotel [btw, it was very difficult to get a room somewhere, as everything was full] and then I took her to an `excursion` around the city :D Lol, we were walking around for such a long time that my mom couldn't walk at the end :D Also on this day was F1 qualifying, and there was a replay at 1 a.m., I wanted to see it, but didn't hear my alarm clock [I always hear it and also I always wake up when it's F1 at any time without any clock], it just explains how tired I was :D
Photos from that day:
On the ferry :) Crazy seagulls :)
Beautiful flowers :)
Sibelius monument
Love this view :)
On the next day we went to see strawberry monument and also monument to the elk :D
And then we went to this Red Bull show, took many photos, then went to tha place where many people were standing and waited there. And finally Kimi Raikkonen arrived ^.^ To be honest, I was feeling like a little girl who just got her dream present, lol :D I was feeling like this also when I went to F1 race in Hungary in 2009, but this time it was so much better :) Kimi was standing for two hours there [except moments when he was driving around in his rally car], also there was Sebastian Loeb. I never saw Raikkonen in such a great mood as this day - he was smiling, talking to journalists [although his interviews always are really short] and finally went to fans to sign stuff for them ^.^ I was the first one who he went to ^.^ It's such a great feeling when your dream for ten years comes true :)
Raikkonen's last year car

After this show we went around the city again, bought food & beer and went back to the ferry :)
Beautiful sunset ^.^
I'll end this post now, it's very long, but I can talk about Finland & show photos forever :)
Hope you liked these photos :)
See you later! ;*

    Ksu, I actually like Old Tallinn more, too :) I have also Old Riga to compare with it, I think they are more similar than Tallinn & Helsinki, but Tallinn is still better) But Finland still remains my dream country ^.^
