Happy New Year!

I think it's time to write a new post finally about my NY celebrations :) And also - Happy New Year everyone, I think it's never too late to wish it ^^
So, as I think all of you know, I finally spent new year night outside Latvia, which, I hope, means, that I'll travel a lot this year ^^ I was at Tallinn for two days, and they were nice. Of course, if I knew that fireworks at Helsinki will be together with Nightwish music, I would go there, as it's not too far, but ok, what's done is done :D
So, photos from Tallinn:
Near the ferry terminal
Excursions aroun Tallinn
Our hotel was near the main train station, so view was wonderful outside the window ^^
Also this old train was standing near our hotel. And we had a wonderful snow that day ^^ In Latvia there wasn't snow at all, so this one was like a fairytale ^^
Christmas tree (the one which fell several times this winter) and a Christmas market at a town hall square.
And also two cute deers were there, poor animals were so scared during fireworks :/
Fireworks at 12 a.m.
And on the next day we went to Rakvere to see its castle.
Me & my dad (it was possible to wear funny clothes like these :D )
Horses ^^
In this castle, to show things that happened at medieval times, was also a torture chamber - different devices used to hurt people, a skeleton in a coffin and also these `dead people`
And later we went to hell - underground tunnels with different scary things around - skeletons appearing in a mirror, dolls with scary faces and so on. For me it was just fun, also when our guide hid behind a wall and touched everyone coming close to scare them, but not for some other people - never heard so much crazy yelling! :D
Me near a cannon.
Rakvere's symbol - a giant bull near the castle :)
And today I had an exam at Latvian typology of soil and vegetation. I thought it'd be the easiest one, and so were questions about soil (and also I often chat with this teacher, so have a motivation to learn everything :D ), but questions about vegetation was simply horrible. Everyone handed in almost empty papers, because in some tasks we had no idea what to do at all, not talking about our unability to learn 277 Latin plant names and where each of them grows. And next exam is biochemistry. I didn't want that day to come since 4th of September, when I had my first biochemistry lecture.
This one is my favourite slide from presentations. And underlined sentence (after finishing the biochemistry course all of these reactions should be known) simply kills me :D
Have fun and take care! :))

  1. it looks as you spent amazing New year) it's my dream - to visit Christmas Tallin) I think it's much more beautiful then Helsinki at this time of the year. And I noticed that you look so much as your dad)))

    1. Many cities at Christmas time look beautiful. But this year I loved Tallinn just because of snow and didn't even look at Christmas decorations :D
      Now I look just a bit like my dad, but if you compare our both childhood photos, it's almost impossible to say who is who (just if you see hair) :D

  2. Those photos are amazing!!
    Ugh, don't you hate when teachers trick you and you have no idea what the questions are about :( x

    1. Thank you :) Yes, that's one of the worst things about learning - when you even don't know what exactly to learn...
