When you grow up you want to be... an astronaut?

Who did you want to become when you were little? I bet a lot of you said Astronauts, I have friend who want to be alien when he grows up. I can't really say I am a grownup (not age wise for sure) but I am always curious about space. That is my little excuse to be posting this today: sharing my experience from Zvezdny Gorodok (or Star City) in Moscow region. It is a place established and opened by the famous Yury Gagarin (first man is space) and it still accommodates astronauts before and after they trips. For example not long before there were people from India there. And they also have a super interesting museum. People who work there are very passionate about their job so you don't need much to get them talking. I received a good story about salmon suit just because I stared at it longer than she thought uninterested person would do. It is intended for water but was never used as there never was a water landing case. Except of one time when two people landed on a lake in early 90s but it was frozen. The scary part if that the boat was upside down and people were afraid to open it if the astronauts are alive. They were ok but tired because they handed upsidedown for hours.
Below you can find a tour to the museum with my favorite shots












Salmon suit photo turned out a little awkward with the reflection of my friend in there but it still need to be posted as well because I told you a story about it.
 
The reason I visited it this otherwise closed town is to run! It was the last in the series and I am happy. It was fun to run almost each weekend during almost two months but frankly I am a bit tired to have weekend all prepped up for a run early in the morning. I am not enough of tourism though! I have plans to have no plans but greeting my husband back home for the upcoming weekend and I couldn't more excited about it. It's nice to be able to be spontaneous for a change. 



My outfit is super casual and there is nothing about it to actually say it. The weather was pretty nice so I didn't mind enjoying it but being post run during not exactly hot day made me wear extra layers. It might be nice, for a change as well.


 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  6. That looks like a very interesting museum. Actually, when I visited Moscow, I did see a replica of a spaceship in Gorki Park. That was pretty cool.

  7. Мало самого космоса. Не хватает макетов галактики)) или чего-нибудь такого, но все равно познавательно.

    1. музей именно про космонавтов, а не просто про космос. там очень много экспедиции и прочее. Галактика, конечно, не помешала бы, но гордятся они именно подготовкой кадров. И кабинетом Гагарина.

  19. I didn't have an opportunity to visit this place, but would love to. I've been reading a lot about Gagarin's death and the reasons behind it. Watched a ton of documentaries. Fascinating.

  20. Space is fascinating. Now I am homeschooling three year old kids who want to be an astronaut and explore space. I'm sure they would love to go to this place. :)

  21. I loved your pictures and those spacesuits looks super duper cool. I am guilty in saying I wanted to be an astronaut growing up. Or an astronomer more specifically. Hahaha. Now, i guess reading about them is the next best thing!

  26. My 8-year-old is currently saying he wants to be an astronaut! I am tasked with finding him an astronaut costume this week!

  27. I think everyone wants to be an astronaut when they're little. Then reality hits and as you grow up you realize that being an astronaut is another level of commitment and not meant for most. Nice pictures.

  28. Who didn't want to be an astronaut growing up? :) Really cool museum!

    1. thanks! It was not that easy you know, I did't have zero g to pose!
      and thanks for mentioning running. It is a great fitness activity for me: it is outdoors so I enjoy beautiful views, it's affordable, it provides me with me time and I don't have to go anywhere to do it, just leave the door. I find organized runs a great motivation to keep up, without it it is hard sometimes to push yourself to do better for yourself

  37. I did not want to be an astronaut. I wanted to be a singer. I still sing, just not professionally. I would love to visit there as well, looks like a lot of fun.

  39. Congratulations on another run in the books! I love the colour of that top on you - it's so much fun!
    I would love visiting a museum like this. While I never pictured myself as an astronaut growing up, I have always been fascinated with the idea of space travel and the science behind it all. If I'm ever in the area, I'll definitely need to check it out!

  42. What fun it would be to travel among the stars. I wanted to be a teacher, or singer/actor when I grew up. Funny how now I approach 50 in a few years that I still don't feel "grown up".

  43. One of my daughters enjoys everything related to astronaut. She would enjoy this trip. Thanks for sharing with us.

  44. I always knew I wanted to be something to do with the arts (singer, writer, etc), but I am still SUPER fascinated with space and the thought of being an astronaut! As an adult, I am even more aware of the fact that I could *not* cut it in space 😅 but I am so amazed at everyone who aspires to go up there and change life as we know it, and I'd love to visit some of the awesome museums that are around the world!

  45. I love museums and I've never been to an astronaut/space one. This looks very interesting.

  46. I love that you were able to take some time during your weekend for a fun visit to the space museum! I love to see all your posts about running as well. You are definitely dedicated and always improving. I'm looking forward to hear more about your future runs and see your progress.

Touriste Russe about Tula

Last week I did something creative and unusual for me. I visited an exhibition tied with presentation of new issue of sport travel magazine "Touriste Russe" or "Russkiy Turist". The magazine has a very long story (it's over 100 years old) but suffered from hardships over the years. Currently the project is crowdfunded. The latest issue is dedicated to region of Tula and it is opening the series of magazines speaking closely about ways to explore the region and best routes for it. Cycling, kayaking, Nordic walking, backpacking even SAP - you name it, they have it. In fact you can definitely use the magazine as a guide to plan your perfect trip. Be you interested in nature or more urban locations you will find a lot of support there. Tula region is also very closely tied with Leo Tolstoy, the famous Russia writer so if you are interested in him I highly recommend you to visit this region (have in mind that most interesting parts are a bit scattered so save couple

Cat-eye and blue: Glassesshop GUDVUE glasses review

You do know I have a lot of glasses. Like really a lot but I do wear them all and this luxury allows me to store a pair everywhere I might need it which is a blessing for a person who wears glasses occasionally, not all the time. I don't have to look for different pair, I just grab what I have near by. I am so spoiled. And am spoiled even more by wonderful and beloved by me shop Glassesshop.com They have a new brand GUDVUE and they offered me two pairs for a review. Today I want to tell about about my new most worn frames. Big, cat-eye and blue. Do I really need anything more? Yes I do. You know I always vouch for quality when it goes for Glasseshop but here they outdid themselves. It not feel great, it feels lux! And I definitely LOVE it. As always light but not too much, perfectly fit for my face (as well as overall quality), the lens are so good, I love the screen protection so much! Awesome! I am sorry for being so positive about it, I just can't find any flaw. Even the
