Hey, howdy, hi!! What’s kicking, people? 😁🙋♀️
And no I’m back! And no I’m not crying and running away like the last time 🤭… I’m actually back in spirits! (And NO I didn’t think it’d happen either😂🙆♀️💪)
After the last couple of posts I was a tad bit dubious about my schedule but well, here we are!😁
Seeing as you’re reading this, you’re probably in the same situation as me wondering how on earth summer sped by without you stepping out of the house. 😶🙄 This was the first such summer for me. And the first ever one without a beach in the picture *bawls her eyes out*
(I’m possibly the only idiot still holding onto summer when everyone’s raving about autumn and the festive season ahead. On top of that its cloudy and raining too hahah👏)
Though we’ve all pretty much resumed our jobs and studying, I can’t help yearning for a holiday.🥺 So I thought why not go down the memorylane and go travelling in our heads? 😁😍 And so its St.Petersburg for today!!😁
Although I must say, St. Petersberg doesn’t classify as one of those beach holidays. It was fairly cold for summer, with chilly, windy evenings. But it was SO beautiful that I’m really not complaining😂💕 This is a continuation of my travel to Moscow for my dance excital last year (YES!🤩), after which we took the train to St. Petersburg.
Taking the Sapsan Train to St.Petersburg
Sapsan is a Russian, high speed electric express train, named after the world’s fastest bird, The Peregrine Falcon.🦅
Me being energetic, I held my phone over every Russian word and this time, it automatically translated “Sapsan” to “Pergerine Falcon” and I weirdly wanted to clap my hands🤪😂😂
We stayed at a gorgeous little boutique hotel. And then off to touring!
Yaayy! My FAVOURITE ever street in whole of Russia because it’s a shopping street! Woohoo.*dances🎵* And the buildings were as usual extra large! *fist pumps*
(Oh those darling Chanel stores)
(When it got darker and the lights came up!)
Cheers to the last beautiful summer I had, travelling last year, before this pandemic struck doom on all our heads😶 Though I know we’re the luckiest lot this year!😣🤞
Random buildings and stores!
Getting a little historic…..
The Church of the Saviour on the Spilled Blood
That’s the ceiling💕 (The entire time I was walking only with my head fixed towards the sky😂) It’s an orthodox church, which currently functions as a museum too.
St. Issac’s Cathedral
Canals and Rivers! (My favourite!💕)
And finally, That’s the famous River Neva which overlooks the Winter Palace. On a closer look…
Here’s a part of the Winter Palace, which is St. Petersburg’s most famous building,
There’s also the Summer Palace along with the Winter Palace. But I shall be covering the Palaces entirely on the upcoming post since I figured this was getting long😂 But you got the sneak peak of the Palace here!
I loved visiting St. Petersburg more than Moscow. It was a quaint little place – so dead gorgeous and interesting that I absolutely adored every bit of it. I suppose it could also be because I didn’t expect this much out of the country- which turned out to be a lovely surprise! Infact I tried to record every information on my phone as we passed because I so badly didnt want to let go.😃
Stay tuned for the Upcoming Post on the Palaces in St. Petersburg and also as to why there are so many palaces here in the first place.
I hope you enjoyed this virtual tour to a foreign land. 😂😍 And I hope the sights, streets and buildings were a feast to your eyes, since we aren’t able to go out much these days. 😐 I loved every moment of putting together these pictures, because for some time I truly lost myself in a different land😇
Which picture/place was your favourite? Have you been to Saint Petersburg? What do you think? Let me know in the comments below!
P.S. Thank you so so much to everyone who genuinely gave me all your support when I felt so lost. Your love and support was truly irreplaceable. I was so overcome that I had to take some time before replying to your sweet words in the comments , and for once this chatterbox became speechless😇😂 *bows*
I honestly want to show how much I appreciate the love, instead of just saying “thank you” repeatedly😂🥺 But do know, I am and will always be grateful to you. Kindness is never lost. And I’ll be there whenever you need💕 because I’ve somehow landed into this amazing community of people who actually listen to me and hold my back, while the rest of the world judges. And I’d only be an idiot if I didn’t realise that. Thank you again. :))))
