Happy New Year!

In Russia New Year celebrations are major and a lot of people have some time off. For me it also means meeting with friends and following the traditions. One of said traditions is an early run on January the 1st. It is call a run of commitment or promise or resolutions. We gather with some other runners (this year due to we-all-know-what there were over 50 spots on maps of Moscow, on average there were 15 people on a run so it was easy to keep the distance), write on number plate without an actual number and run for as many meters as the new year. It actually works, well, mostly. I always write something about basement but we haven't yet did up will our desires yet. May be 2021 will make it different for my basement. My resolution trick is to write things I want to achieve but I can work on. So if I want to do something I want to move forward to completing it, even if I couldn't make it in the end, I can see how much I improved or moved forward. It makes me happy as well. I don't think I will be very active this week forward but I will try to show my face a little more online.






 

Have a nice day,

  5. Keeping a list of goals is a great way to stay on top of working towards them, even if you only make a list on the new year. Good luck on the basement, you'll get it done!

  6. Yes! I'm the same way, I don't want to make resolutions that I won't keep, but work towards something to make me feel like I've accomplished something.

  30. Happy new year, Lyosha! I hope 2021 is amazing for you and your husband. My new year was far less exciting than yours. I spent it at home in my pajamas with my cat. Lol. But I did get to go outside and see some fireworks nearby, and I really enjoyed that. I am excited to see what this year brings for all of us.

  31. Happy New Year! I love this tradition, it's such a fun way to kick off the year on a positive note. We always go for our 'first day hike' where we pick a random local trail to hike with the pups. Getting out with nature has been a major source of peace and tranquility for my husband and I, so it allows us to start the year with the right mindset.

Merida, part 2. Dzibilchaktun

As a huge lovers of ruins and history and old stones we couldn't possibly passed on an opportunity to visit the ruins. Dzibilchaktun was a marvel and we enjoyed the ruins of the old city so much. It added a lot that we were allowed to almost fully interact with the zone, climb up, sit on the stones and such. Too bad the cenote was closed but when it's opened we'll make sure to visit again. The place says it all really, I loved it SO much. I found it most curious that it was an actual living vibrant and kinda big city years back, ot a religious place, it was a place where people flocked to live their lives. Very fascinating! I chose a loose dress and a polo. It's very comfortable to wear, has minimal impact of local weather (if it's hotter I have move coverage but generally won't feel hot since the fit is loose; if it's colder I have longer sleeves and a tiny bit of layering. a win-win). The whole outfit looks pretty and I loved the mix. I was wearing:

Merida, p1

Our first trip around Mexico as residents and as parents. I was so excited and happy to just to do it, it didn't really mean much to me how much I will be able to see and explore. We ended up spending three very wonderful days in Merida and today I want to share with you the first of them. I know it might be confusing because I have just posted about Valladolid getaway before but actually these Merida moments took place two weeks earlier. I've just had too many photos to sort and been a bit lazy here and there. So here goes the first day. We wanted to visit the far off museum right away because I day was a day of arrival which is broken anyway. It's called Mayan World museum and it hold the largest exhibition on the history of Maya. We were super curious and motivated to visit it because we live around Maya and our curiosity is very high. The museum is amazing and totally worth your time. Bonus points from us because it held a temporary cycling exhibit. My cycling heart l
