Autumn’08

October 27, 2008

I love autumn for the variety of reddish colors it brings to us. There are days when trees get covered with a picturesque mosaic. One of these days I decided to take my bike, camera and get out to the nearest forest.

Here are the pictures:

Travel to Helsinki. A couple of words and shots about this city.

May 24, 2008

My first impression about finnish people was pretty good. Later on it started getting much better 😉
Well, first days Helsinki didn’t impress me much until I got to downtown. After this, I felt in love it. It is very convenient, cozy, distinctive and it is easy to get around.

Since I love biking and everything that relates to it, it was lovely to see a lot of people riding a bike and commuting. There is a mature infrastructure for this. Helsinki has more than one thousand kms of bike paths. Most of people while riding have a helmet on.


I didn’t waste my free time just sitting at home after work. I visited a lot of places. Fortunately, Helsinki has a lot of this stuff. The Government is paying a lot attention on the tourism development. You can easily get free maps, tourist guides and necessary info about anything.
Moreover I learnt some phrases like “Hyvaa Paivaa”, “Kiitos” and more. I used them when I met our finnish colleagues. Actually, they know some Russian too 😉
Everybody speaks English in more or less extent. It’s cool. I didn’t have any difficulties with communication. Even elder people know it 😉

Spring and Ducks

March 8, 2008

It was a pretty good day. I took my camera with me to take some photos. It seems to me that my camera kind of “got covered with dust”. The season is coming. The winter was pretty gray and boring so that I didn’t take pictures.

Trip to Grodno

February 2, 2008

Last weekend I went to Grodno. It’s one of the cities in Belarus where ancient buildings were kept practically intact. The city has a great potential to become a tourist center. The authorities are restoring the center. There is an opinion among the citizens of Grodno that this restoration destroys its originality. Anyway I liked this city.
