Myshkin and River Cruising

 

I definitely needed that cruise. I feel so much better today! It was such a wonderful trip to me. The weather was good, there was a tiny bit of rain the first night but after that it was food. There even was sunny on our last purely cruising day. I think we will cruise a lot more next year, especially as there budget-friendly weekend options available. It was a three-day (starting late Friday) cruise with only one stop on a way: Myshkin. Myshkin is most likely named so not because of Mouse (which shocking for Russian speaking person having it mascot animal as mouse and even as part of coat of arms) but as letter changing from original Myskin (mys is cape in Russian). But there is also a legend of Russian ruler being saved by running mouse from poisonous snake. A lot of people believe that both stories are true. Anyway, right now Myshkin is all about mice, there are tons of jokes (for example stating both human population and approx mice population head to head), tiny monuments and themed souvenirs. After USSR finished Myshkin decided to be a touristic destination and I love it for it. I did enjoy touring in it, visiting countless museums and learning new.





My outfit is very warm and comfortable as I wanted to walk a lot not bothered by weather at all. Frankly on the river I mostly wore a hoodie or just a top if I wasn't going to stand outside for a hour or so. I chose bright accessories to my outfit more attractive and thus blogging friendly.
























I was wearing:
H&M Metallica top
Befree jeans
Uniqlo hoodie and jacket
Fila sneakers

 

Have a nice day,

  28. Sounds like a wonderful cruise. I find river cruises much nicer than those that ruin the oceans....I enjoyed reading about Myshkin - it sounds very East European - like something from Gogol.

  47. Cheers to the Metallica top! And most of all, congrats on getting away in the midst of all this chaos with the pandemic. I'm jealous as we just cancelled our cruise for January due to so many restrictions I don't want to deal with for 11 days. You look COLD thought and I hate being cold, but you're smiling and having fun, so it must not have been a huge deal, good for you!

Circus

Hello! Last time I went to the circus 9 years ago and also in March. You probably wonder how come I remember it so well. Actually we went to the circus thanks to my parents the day we applied to get married (in Russia you had to (or still have I am not sure) apply to get your marriage registered two months in advance). My own parents been super worried and nervous back in their day and they celebrate the application day even more than actual wedding date. I think it's super adorable. That's why when I had an opportunity to visit circus I immediately said say. I was provided tickets to the circus of dancing fountains 'Aquamarine' Moscow by 55555 club. It was super awesome because not only I got the ticket for myself I had more to share. So I took my husband and my sis' family to the circus. They say kids love it the most so I just had to take my 5 year old flexible niece and my suddenly very grown up 12 year old niece with me. By the way, the latter shocked me being

Oil museum VDNH

  Talking about fun stuff. My husband did several museums projects and he is about to do some more. I am very excited because a) it's fun b) it's extra money to enjoy whatever c) I get to go to the museums because we need to. That was the main reason to visit the museum of oil located in VDNH, Moscow. And it's also super close to the climbing center we have a pass to. It was so much fun! The whole museum is interactive and you get to touch, move, look, put on or scan everything. It gives a lot of information on usage of oil (and it's actually a lot wider than I have thought before). Shows a lot of information regarding actual mining and transportation of oil as well manufacturing with oil. I l absolutely loved the time capsule in the museum and information from interactive book with usage of oil in various ancient cultures (the book it self is not that good by the way, they show text information with a flow, text changes but it is self for a very low reading speed, it i

Kids Fashion Week

ENG: Yesterday on the 8th of March I celebrated Women's Day the best way possible: I attended a Fashion Show. And to make it even more special and beautiful it was a Kids Fashion Show or fashion shows even because I could see a lot of brands presented the collections during the event. I have admit producer center 'Grani' outdid themselves. It took place in Central Kids' Department Store, beautiful and famous old building filled with everything your kid might desire. RU: Вчера в день 8 марта, я отметила Международный Женский День самым лучшим образом для меня: я посетила показ мод. И даже ещё лучше: это был показ детской моды в рамках Kids Fashion Week, самой полной и отвественно неделе детской моды. Надо признать, продюсерский центр "Грани" превзошли даже смелые ожидания, работая над этим праздником моды. Показов было множество, равно как и брендов, представивших свои коллекции на любой случай для маленьких модников и модниц. Проходило это мероприятие в Цент
