Turku, In Winter Or In Summer?

I really love this city. If somebody were to ask me where I would like to live when I have millions of sacks full of gold to buy a house abroad besides my current home in Moscow, I would blatantly say ‘Turku’! Turku (in Suomi) a.k.a Åbo (in Swedish) is the oldest city in the country. Before retaining its own name ‘Turku’, it was originally called Suomi (Finland) which later became the name for the whole country itself. The name Åbo was given by the Swedish as this area was part of their kingdom. What does Turku offer? As I mentioned before, Turku is the oldest town…

What You Should Do in Vienna Other Than Museums?

Watching people and witnessing how the locals live is one of my favorite things to do in a new city. That might be a reason why I am keen on spending time sitting in the subway in Moscow or somewhere similar and watching how people use their time and how they communicate with each other. Unfortunately, hanging out in the subway is more difficult to do in Vienna. Not only because I am unfamiliar with it, but also because I hardly ever find a place to sit down at Stadtbahn (a subway station in Vienna). Some stations have enough seating, but in others, that might be a…

No Picture, Please! How good are the museums in Vienna?

Everybody loves Vienna, except the person who wrote this post. That is the truth I must deal with.

But, that is another story… If you ask me whether or not I will return to Vienna someday, I would think twice, three times, unless you buy me a return ticket + accommodation + transportation.…

Austria: Vienna In My Eyes

Habsburg Monarchy, Schnitzel, Austrian Strudel, Austrian Schnapps, and Arnold Schwarzenegger… Wien, Salzburg, Innsbruck... Those things are all I know about Austria — I'm too shallow to believe that I used to study political science, majoring in International Relationships. As an excuse for my innocence, I keep reminding myself that not all International Relationships students know that Rendang is originally from Indonesia. Our Schengen visa was still valid until May 2019. Just after the NYE holiday ended, with a very strong enthusiasm, I started to plan my next holiday, annoying my husband as I brought up the idea when we had just arrived home with tons of laundry.…

Etcetera Before Bratislava: Sim Card and Transportation Inside-Outside The City

This post will be the most condensed post ever. That’s not because I have been bumming around recently like my acquaintances always say about me. Even though they may be right... I am struggling hard to find some minutes to make a post as I am busy enriching myself with the new experience of being a slacker, yay! Sim Card in Bratislava You need to feel what I felt when I tried to buy a sim card in a supermarket in Bratislava and they said ‘No, sorry. You need an ID card to buy one. We don’t accept any foreign passports’. I was really in a panic!!!…
