Everything in life has an end. So has my Russian adventure.

The weather outside has  significantly worsened today, which always makes me feel a bit more nostalgic and thoughtful. Or maybe it’s just the film I saw yesterday… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway I went back to my folder with all the photos I’ve taken so far while being here in Russia. I came across a set of photos from […]

It’s been a while since I’ve last signed in here and now it’s been one month of me living in Ulyanovsk. It’s not that easy neither hard. But some situations, they just kill me ๐Ÿ˜‰ Like today in the morning… Just one word of explanations. About two weeks ago I moved to a different flat […]
