EVERYDAY RANDOMS N°3

Hello, everyone! We've been on the road since Monday now and reached our destination on Wednesday. It is so good to be home and great to see my family! I have a lot of posts I'm working on in my head, but it is probably going to take a little bit to get them on the computer screen. I thought I'd share some snaps from my travel days.
Isn't this first photo the most Norwegian thing you've ever seen? For me it is. Ferries = gambling on whether you get old and stale coffee or not (it's surprisingly good on Norwegian ferries, almost always). I couldn't not share the beautiful view on the second picture as we were passing through the Norwegian mountains.

Oleme esmaspäevast peale sõitnud ja jõudsime kolmapäeval Eestisse. Nii tore on sõpru ja sugulasi näha, aga negatiivne külg on see, et pole eriti jõudnud sisukaid postitusi kirjutada. Kuigi mul on mitu mõtet peas ringlemas, läheb tõenäoliselt veidike aega, enne kui need arvutiekraanile jõuavad. Mõtlesin, et jagan mõningaid pilte meie reisist. Kas see esimene pilt pole teie jaoks kõige norrakam asi, mida te olete näinud? Minu jaoks küll. Praami peal olemine = kohvi joomine ja igavlemine. Teisel pildil on kaunis vaade, mida üle mägede sõites nägime. Ei saanud jagamata jätta.
  So this was something. I've talked about my love for the hotel in Oslo called Losby Gods before, but we got so lucky this time. The bartender offered to give us a house tour, complete with lounges, an old gentelmen's smoking room, library and a wine cellar! It was glorious! The pictures here show a large conference room and the main wine cellar used for tastings. I was so struck by the other rooms I even forgot to take photos! Aren't these two beautiful though?

Olen eelnevalt juba Losbyst juttu teinud, aga seekord saime eriti toreda kogemuse - kui läksime hotellibaari paari klaasi veini jooma, pakkus baarman, et viib meid majatuurile. Nägime kogu ajaloolist hotelli ning näiteks vana aja džentelmenide suitsetamistuba, antiikset raamatukogu (läidetud kaminaga!) ning veinikeldrit, kus toimuvad pea kolm korda nädalas degusteerimised. Väga lahe! Vasakpoolsel pildil on tegemist suure konverentsiruumiga (vapustav kroonlühter!) ning teisel pildil veinikeldriga. Nägime veel nii palju ilusaid tube, kuid unustasin pilti teha! 
The Tallink boat is always a great excuse to do some shopping. Allthough I've travelled the Stocholm-Tallinn way more than I could count, I still found some nice bits to take home! Like this perfume for example. I have to take back my own words that I don't like sweet smelling scents. This would not be in my repertoire normally, but I was craving for something sweet and simple and this perfume delivers! 

Tallinki laev on alati hea põhjus veidi ostelda. Kuigi ei plaaninud midagi osta, sattus ikka üks-kaks asja kätte. Pidin ka iseenda sõnu sööma, et "kerged lillelised lõhnad ei meeldi", sest just selline minuga kaasa rändas. Mis ma saan öelda? Just täpselt selline kerge ja lilleline isu oli...

I cannot not walk by Christmas trees and not take pictures... I have like a million in my phone already. They're always so cute and I'd like to take them all home! The first photo is from a department store in Pärnu and the second one is made in a fantastic café in Pärnu called Supelsaksad. It's one of my favourites. I'm contemplating on which smart phone to get (I put mine in the washer, yay, me!) and Ahto was showing me the photos his camera can make. Can you believe this second photo is a smart phone picture? It's so good. I might have to get the same phone he has! :)

Vaesel Ahtol on telefonis 101 pilti ehitud kuuskedest (ma teen tihti tema telefoniga pilti, sest sellel nii hea kaamera), mõni mehisem arvaks, et tal on väga huvitav hobi.. Mõlemad pildid on tehtud Pärnus, esimene Pärnu keskuses ja teine ühes mu lemmikkohvikus, Supelsaksades. Viimase pildi tegi Ahto, demonstreerimaks, kui hästi teeb tema nutitelefon pilte ja pean nõustuma. Kuna ise panin kogemata telefoni musta pesuga pesumasinasse (jee, ajud!), siis peab vist jõuluvanale kirja kirjutama hakkama... Loodan, et need pildid väga igavad ei olnud ja soovin taaskord mõnusat jõuluootusaega!
