Bloganuary: My 3 fave ways to travel

Here are my 3 favourite ways to travel

Number One: By cruise ship

I live in a harbour city, so it’s easy to travel by ship. Everything is done for you. The food and the entertainment. You sleep in a cabin. All you need is to relax. I’ve been on a cruise to Stockholm the most. Then to Riga and Tallinn at Christmas. Then to Saint Petersburg, Russia some years ago.

Number Two: By train

It’s a bit more expensive than by bus, but it’s the fastest. I travel to Helsinki twice a month. The most challenging part is the sleeping arrangement. I find it difficult to sleep sitting up, so my sleep is light. I’ve also travelled to Lapland by train, but then you have a bed to sleep on.

Number Three: By bus

It’s the same on a train. I can’t sleep sitting up, but at least I can rest a little bit. You can’t move like you can’t on a ship or a train, but it’s easier than driving yourself. I don’t like to drive long distances either, so the bus is my 3rd favourite way to travel.

Bloganuary: Achievement in year 2023

weekly planner

Bloganuary 2023, What is something you want to achieve this year?

First, I had an awful Christmas and an even worse new year; terrible flu hit me. It feels like I have never been this sick in my life. I have a cough, and I have had a high fever. The fever is worse at night. I don’t know how long this will last. It’s been on for over a week now. The flu gets you drained. It’s the coughing that does it. I hope this will be over soon. I want the taste back, and my ears popped. Now I feel horrible. I lose my voice after all that coughing. My eyes are tired, and they are also dry. Not a very lovely way to start the year.

Despite not feeling well right now, I will begin Bloganary about what I want to achieve this year. I don’t usually make any goals in advance because they don’t come true anyway. I have things I wish I could achieve. One achievement is finishing my filmmaking education and completing my assignment on time. The education is only part-time. There will be other things to think about, too, at the same time. The year will be pretty busy for me.

I have three concerts to see and the travelling to those. Then there are at least two movie premiers, Guardian of the Galaxy 3 and Indiana Jones 5. Those are the achievement that I’m sure it’s going to happen. Other achievements will only be a plus.

In 2021, that is. You didn’t expect that twist, did you? 😁 The year has gone fast once again. I only had two achievements this year. The first was the most important thing: the driving license. The second was the course in UI/UX design course. It has been a quiet year for me. I haven’t blogged that much either. I also got two corona vaccines.

Next year it’s gonna be a better year. I’m gonna attend two concerts. Duran Duran on my birthday on June 2, and then the Toto concert in August. I really hope they won’t be postponed. I’m looking forward to them.

The year is coming to an end, so I say goodbye to 2021. I leave you with photos of my Christmas trip to Stockholm, Sweden.

When we (dad and I) got back home, there was even more snow. We had a white Christmas ❤️
