First off, I was in Poland and forget to tell you, oops. Haha, I actually only noticed when I was already there. :P I was visiting the perfect and lovely [livejournal.com profile] aredhela and I had such a great time! I took some picture and I'm gonna post some soon. (They're not that good though, just be warned. :P)

Then when I got home from my mini-holiday it was sooo weird. I actually felt really sad today when I got back. :( So I bought some Christmas lights to cheer me up!

And then even better, the Christmas card from [livejournal.com profile] gothikmaus arrived! Thank you sooo much for this, I love it! :D It just cheered me right up, haha. It's so awesome and pretty and argh, just look at it yourself, my dear flist!!



Isn't it perfect? <333 Thanks again!! :D

ok, so my incredible journey today from Berlin to Kassel today...

ok, first off, we have two train stations where the ICE (our fastest train) stops in Berlin, East and Main. The friend I stayed it lives nearer to East plus it's where the train starts, so you always get a seat even if you haven't reserved one (6 euros, no ty). Naturally I thought I could get on the train there. Well, I know my Berlin public transport, so I left so I would've been at the east station half an hour early because I know my "Pappenheimer"... (idiots really)

then I had to change trains which went ok. BUT THEN. the train directly to the East station (as well as the Main station btw, it's just a matter of when to get off) starts to leave and then just stops. Driver tells us that there's a broken down train in the East station and so none of their trains in that direction can run, and could we please take the metro, busses or trams.
well, those don't run directly to the train station tho. we stayed on the tracks without moving FOREVER and I was already late-ish at that point, so I thought change in plans, I'm gonna go to main (it's there 15 mins later) and tried to take a metro/train combination.
well, one nervous breakdown later I was on the right train, and thought about making it just in time. train arrives at Main station, I see the ICE leaving....

AND I HAD A TICKET WITH WHICH YOU CAN ONLY TAKE ONE CERTAIN TRAIN BECAUSE IT'S CHEAP

then I went to the railways system people (the company also owns the breaking down Berlin trains...) and asked to have the thing with the specific train removed. Basically the woman I talked to acted entitled as fuck and accused me of lying..... ummmm...

well, in the end she did remove it, and I could take a later train at least. BUT HER FUCKING BEHAVIOUR I CANNOT!!

At least I am home now, and can get into the Christmas spirit, haha <3

So, turns out I wasn't exaggerating when I said it'd be months before I got around to posting some more pictures... Who'd have thought! xD

I proudly present you here: photos from my travel across the Baltic states way back this summer! Today: Lietuva aka Lithuania! :)

So, to jog your memory a bit, here is the last post I made, the one about Latvia. So check it to see what this post is about (in the likely case that you've forgotten it over the last two months xD), if you want to. :)

To match it to the last post, it'd be nifty to start with a song again, yes? ;) Aaaand I chose you, glittery Eurovision band! xD



I actually really love this song and still think it's a shame they didn't make it to the finals. The text also is very Baltic, so I guess it fits in here. :)

Image-heavy glory this way comes! :D )

So, yeah, those were a lot of photos... :)

Hope you enjoyed it and see you again in the last part about Estonia? ♥


ETA: So... I just noticed I haven't resized the pictures beforehand... I won't go through them now because if I do I might go insane! So yeah. Hope you have good bandwidth.

God, this took me an eternity... and it will be another till I finish it. But I will, I have lots of photos to show off! ;)

Okay, let’s start with some background stuff. My entry title is from the song composed for the "Baltic Way", an event where about 2 million people from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania formed a human chain 650 km long between Vilnius and Tallinn via Riga. It happened in August 1989 as a peaceful protest against the Soviet Republic. When I read about it, it made me cry, so I thought, I should bring it up here. :)
Here is a video with the song:


And the lyrics and a translation can be found here.

(Obs! For given reasons the following post is image heavy! ;))

Okay, but enough with history (awesome, AWESOME history), let’s get on with the photos, shall we? )

My next post will have pictures of Lithuania and tons of them at that! :D I guess I will also put some more pictures of Latvia in there, since we crossed it again on our way to Estonia.

So, stay tuned for post number two! It will only take months a short while! See you! :D

ETA: Part 2 can be found here.

Back again.

*yawns*

*stretches*

So, hey, I am back from two awesome, interesting, adventurous and just plain wonderful weeks in the Baltic States.

Eestimaa, Latvija and Lietuva were all amazing and I can't tell which I like more than the others, I just love them all. ♥

I have taken massive amounts of photos and thinking of doing lots of spamming here, if anyone is even remotely interested in seeing them. :)

And I'm so sorry about if you didn't get a card because I read you reply too late!! I should just start putting those posts up earlier! Sorry!

I'll see if I can catch up with LJ but two weeks is just a long time... :/

Anyway, I wish you a good night and leave you with that for now:

Photobucket
Night sky over Riga.

LJ doesn't let me comment or answer comments for two days now! >(
When I posted this Finland entry it took me about 100 tries, and now this?! Grrr...
So, you might have to wait some more till I get around to answer comments, but as soon as I can, I will! Promise! :)

In other good news (good for me at least, hehe...):
The book department in Galeria Kaufhof is quite shitty at most times, but now they had a sale on some travel guides! :D I just LOVE travel guides, I love to read them before I go to bed, and the imagine trips to just about everywhere as I fall asleep. It may be a little weird, but it just makes me so happy. :)
And now they had them for only 1€ each! Of course I couldn't resist and bought three... They mostly had stuff about popular destinations during the summer months Turkish beaches, Spanish islands and such, but I found some more interesting ones, or rather ones that I find more interesting. About...
Portugal,
Scotland,
and Dubai.
I've started reading the one about Dubai and this whole country sounds kinda batshit insane to me! xD But that doesn't stop me from saving for a one day stay at Burj Al-Arab...

This brought this site to my mind again. And now, don't tell me you don't kinda think it is weird?

Already looking forward to reading the other two guides! (And hoping to be able to comment soon...)

Oh, and btw, [livejournal.com profile] ai_chi, I just have to ask now since I can't comment, please explain what is the whole story about Ceiling!Mohinder! Please? :)

ETA: Oh yay, seems like I can comment again! :D
