Back On Track

Yayyy, I’m finally getting some relief to this constant urge to travel. Just booked a small three nights and two days holiday to Budapest for April! It’s all I could do with the few days I get off from work. I’ve been in Budapest once before (it was the last stop of a mini-InterRail-trip) but it’s been a while. Didn’t even own a simple digital camera back then and flew back with a budget airline called Sterling, don’t think that even exists anymore…?

Oh those times!

Me Time

Spending some quality time by myself relaxing with a cup of chai tea on my favorite spot: the bed. IMG_5456

Almost forgot my new best friend, thesis, for a moment there. Oh crap, it seems to be really the clinging sort… And like it just can’t let go of me! My evening will be spent closely with it and the text editor. Hope you’re having better company for Valentine’s Day!

Maybe I’ll survive, knowing tomorrow I’ll get my mind of things. I’ll be heading to Helsinki first time after last summer (!) to spend some time with the super-duper K. Maybe we even come up with some new adventure plans… 😉 Can’t wait!

When You Can’t Go Far…

…Make the remote countries come to you. That’s my solution to everything. Well maybe not to everything, but when I feel like traveling and I can’t, I like to cook food from different countries, mostly oriental, like Indian, Thai… It makes me feel good. Mostly probably so, because I like food, but also because for a short moment I can taste the exotic in it.

Last night it was time for some Japanese: sushi. Not that I would have ever been in Japan, but based on my prejudice, I envision being there would taste like sushi — good. This was the third time in my life that I made sushi, so it didn’t quite turn out like a restaurant version, haha. But we got it eaten. 😉
