What's in my carry on?


Since I'm traveling tomorrow I thought it would be fun to share my carry on essentials, must have things when traveling. 

1. First of I always have hand sanitizer with my anywhere I go because you never know when you might need it. Also lip balm is also important cause the air on the plans are usually very dry and so that's a must. Also something that I've started to carry with me now when traveling is bronzer because I usually look super pale and tired after a flight and putting on a a little bit bronzer will help you out! Also something that I have that I don't have in the picture is hand lotion. 

2. Well this is a no brainer, you need your passport and wallet when traveling. I always have both cash and card with me, sometimes there might be problems with cards. You never know! 

3. I get cold very easily, reason why I almost every time have extra clothes with me wherever I go. And planes can be cold when the AC kicks in, therefore I always take a pair of wool socks with me. No cold feet for this girl! 

4. Doesn't matter if it's a 3 hour flight or 12 hour flight I will always get bored that's why I always have a couple of magazines and a book with me. 

5. Always have my camera in my carry on, safest that way. 

6. Also ever since I got my MacBook I've took with me to most of my trips, also I like to move pictures from my camera to my computer every now and then cause you never know what happens. 

7. I added a number 7 here to add some things you can't see here but are with me. Of course I have my phone with me and chargers to all the electronics. I also have gum with me to chew on during take off and landing cause I hate when my ears get blocked. Also a water bottle is must. Sometimes I bring one from home (a empty one of course) but sometimes I buy one from the airport and fill it up when I can. 


Those are some of the must have things with me when traveling! 
Any questions feel free to ask! 

Now I need to get some sleep before an early wake up!

Zippy

So this past Tuesday my friend took my to a place I've never been to before, a adventure park! Never ever have I done anything like that in my life. You had to climb up, across things, go from one thing to another high up in the air, use swings to move from A to B. My favourite part must have been the zip lines. So much fun to fly trough the air in a forest.


They had different courses, the green being the easiest and the black the most difficult one. We did not go for the red and the black one since it was our first time and the blue one was hard enough. You have to have to be some what fit to do those cause they require a lot of strength. My arms, legs and stomach muscles were so sore the next few days. It was a great workout that's for sure! 


We had to wear a helmet and security harness. Also we bought some gloves to save our hands from burns. And good thing is that no one looks good in that helmet! haha ! 
It was such a fun experience and one I know I wouldn't have done on my own. Very grateful for my friend coming up with this idea and taking me there. And because it was the first time for both of us we were both as clueless.  And we treated our self with some ice cream afterwards. Well needed! 

Zippy was the name of the place and I do recommend it for anyone who wants to try out new things. The personal there was very friendly and helped out if you got stuck and didn't know how to pass a obstacle. I added the link for anyone who wants to check it out, read more about the courses or just interested to know more. It's in English ;)  


But now I've distracted myself enough from packing! Better start !

My week in pictures

It's been a busy week for me, filled with work and seeing friends. I finally had some morning shifts (after 2 weeks of just evening shifts) which meant I had finally some time to do things after work. Monday I met up with a friend who I haven't seen in awhile so it was nice to catch up. We made plans to see each other on Tuesday again when she'll be giving me my birthday present. No clue what it is, but it's something we'll do together so I'm excited. 
Tuesday met up with my bestie and went to get coffee and ended up meeting two other friends and watching a movie. I still don't know why but I've been super tired this entire week but I just need to push trough this week and then I'll be on my way to sunny Crete! 

 

For me it's the small things that matter, like getting some free tea and fries when you're bored at work from friends. That made my Thursday when I was working in the pouring rain. Friday was spent with friends and pizza and couple of drinks. Also ended up driving around town for the entire evening. 


And to finish off this post with a couple of pictures I took yesterday when I went fishing with a couple of friends. Unfortunately we didn't get any fish but it ended up being a great day, sunny during the day and then these amazing views in the evening. Must say it's been a successful week !

Tallinn

I was going to do a post about my trip to Tallinn earlier but ended up being to busy and had a lot of other things on my mind so it took longer than anticipated. Sorry about that!  Last Tuesday my friend and I did a day trip to Tallinn, left early in the morning and came back in the evening the same day. We were very lucky with the weather being nice and sunny, made walking around the city much more enjoyable.


The day was spent by shopping and walking around old town while enjoying some lemon sorbet. I love walking around the old town especially during the summer cause the streets are full of people, there's a bunch of small boutiques and cafes here and there. The whole part feels like you're in a whole different place. Such a cozy place during summer. (If the weather is nice) 


Came home with way less money than leaving but all so worth it. Here's a couple of my favourite things I bought. The long vest was one of my faves, it has a rope so you can either have it open or closed. And then the phone case, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. Other things I bought was a very pretty white jumpsuit with a lace figure top, kind of a bomber jacket but a bit thinner and then couple of summer tops. 

All in all it was one of the most fun days of this summer so far. Had a blast with my friend and to have those memories together is irreplaceable. Cherish them for a long time!
