Hey! ^^ Finally I have time to write this post :) Last weekend was simply amazing! So I'll try to describe it, as I'm still full of emotions :)
... It was in 2008, I think, when my former classmate Aldis (thanks to him :D ) sent me Nightwish's song Bye Bye Beautiful, while we were making geography project with him and another girl. I heard about this group before, but didn't pay attention to it, so this was my first Nightwish's song. I started to listen to them, even though my mom always asked me, how can I listen to this kind of music (especially she `liked` Marco in a video I Wish I Had an Angel :D ). But their songs appeared more and more often in my playlists. At 5th of November last year I wrote in my blog that if they won't come to Latvia, I'll go to Helsinki to see them live. But I didn't mean it very serious. At New Year I decided that my aim for this year will be to do everything I find exciting (as before I very often said `no` just because of my laziness), and also to stop being afraid of talking with unknown people or shy. At 16th of January I bought a ticket to the mentioned concert & at 2:35 a.m. of 10th of March went to Helsinki to hear Nightwish & also meet Katja, her husband & Ksu ^^
On a ferry :) Only I can run through Tallinn and arrive at ferry terminal 1 minute before registration was closed :D
On my way to meet Katja ^^
Before concert we went to the forest, it was so nice to see lots of snow (as in Latvia there isn't much of it), and also spring was already there ^^ Katja, you live in such a beautiful place, I always wonder how finns can combine together big roads, stations and other things like that with untouched nature :)
And at the evening we went to a concert ^^ I already said this after Amorphis, but now these words mean much more - it was the best concert I ever was to! Fantastic music, fantastic voices of Marco & Anette, fantastic show, fireworks, fantastic metal from Poisonblack, who sang before Nightwish - everything was perfect! After Marco sang his part of Scaretale, I really thought I was dreaming - so amazing it was ^^ And so emotional - especially The Islander (at least for me).
Such a big crowd.
My videos - Scaretale & The Islander :) Video & sound quality is really bad, but the main thing here is all these emotions :) Thank you, Marco, Anette, Tuomas, Emppu & Jukka!
The next day after concert we met Ksu and went to villa Elfvik :) Such a beautiful place and beautiful finnish nature, and also weather was very nice and sunny.
This day was very fun and interesting, and at the evening we ate very yummy pizza & watched some funny videos :)And on Monday I already had to go home.
Tallinn bus station.
The weekend was amazing, it was so nice to meet Katja, Henri and Ksu in reality, not only via internet, and also to hug Pirozhok :) And, of course, to hear Nightwish. I really hope it wasn't the last time, as I would really like to enjoy this once again sometimes :)
And my next aim (connected to music) is to visit Tuska Open Air Metal Festival in couple of years :D
Have fun and enjoy the life! ^___^
