Ok, you really mega superduper positively surprised me! And again I got one proof for ‘do not judge before you try’. I got lots of good feedback about writing in English so I decided to keep going.
It’s been a while since the last post. I have actually had really some things to do, heh. No but seriously, I have been sewing, for instance. Last Saturday I was performing with fabulous girls in the dance studio’s 10 years gala. Yes, I was stressed, but it went actually really nice and I had a fab Saturday overall. It is actually quite funny to dance with high heels. This time we had one choreography with and one without heels. I am so excited for coming shows! Oh yes, and I was sewing because I needed to fix some costumes before the show. All dancers know what I am talking about. My absolute favorite this time was this super cute lace!
One night I was so-called busy because I booked a Finland-Sweden Easter trip:
- Bus from Lodz to Warsaw
- Flight from Warsaw to Helsinki (via Copenhagen)
- Late evening bus from Helsinki to Tampere
- Bus from Tampere to Vaasa
- Boat from Vaasa to Umeå
- Flight from Umeå to Warsaw (via Stockholm and Oslo)
- Bus from Warsaw to Lodz
If you are curious; totally it will be around 25h travelling. (I was so I needed to count!) I will be truly surprised if everything goes as planned. And yes, I would like to spend more time in beautiful Scandinavian capitals, but unfortunately this time I will just change flights. Most I am curious about the last flight which I needed to buy from some totally new webpage for me.. Thank god I used a credit card! 😀 I was actually considering to take a flight from Gdansk to Turku, but unfortunately I was booking too late and there were no free seats. It would have been a pleasure to try something new and not always the same Warsaw airport and also if I had been an early bird I could get tickets up to Umeå for 65€. From Poland to Sweden via Finland just 65€. That’s really nothing. But anyway, now I needed to pay a bit more since I was unable to buy tickets when I first checked and had to change flight plans. Damn! But still I am looking forward to my little ‘home trip’. 🙂
Now when I am going to my comfort zone, to the land where I should be able to communicate without any problem, heh. I would like to mention one thing which is really hard for me to apply. A habit which I did not know is existing here is so called ‘air kissing’ or ‘cheek kissing’. Sometimes I just really embarrass myself when I am so pure Finnish and forget this thing and get into a panic when somebody is ‘coming too close’, heh. Maybe someday I will learn how this mysterious act is done. Just to be clear; I have nothing against cheek kissing, I am just not that used to it. That’s all. 🙂
Around a week ago it was the International Women’s Day so I could not help noticing that this is definitely a bigger day here that in Finland. Please, correct me if I am not right. But seriously, I think that I have never paid much attention to this day and 99% sure I have never before got flowers or other gifts, maximum a high five, heh. I even got scared when one random man approached me on the street with open arms chatting something in Polish. I just basically jumped into a flowerbed and almost shouted my inability to speak Polish. Yes, I understood later on at home that maybe he just wanted to wish me happy women’s day.. Good job Suvi. Anyhow, it was really heart-warming to notice when I was walking to a grocery store that there were a plenty of guys carrying flowers. I cannot give an answer if I just have been blind in Finland or what because when I scrolled Instagram I recognized that many my Finnish acquaintances had got flowers too. Anyway, I can have my own opinion and according to my very own experiences Poland won this round, sorry! 😛
Quite a short little story this time, but żółwik ziomuś mates! I gotta go and dance. 😉 Next time possibly more. I might feel creative during the 25h travelling. 😛
