Summer 2014 – Moscow Arrival


Hello there my Dear Readers,


Are you ready for summer 2014? This summer is promising to be full exciting and interesting mini posts on my side! You might wonder why? Well, first of all it has been a year since I haven’t been back home in Moscow. I landed in Moscow a few nights ago and I am still adjusting to the lifestyle here. It is not just the lifestyle that requires adaptation, it is also the people and their mentality along with their attitude. However, these are all a little too generic and I will talk about these in one of my later posts. The thing that really changed for me is actually my house. My childhood home is now long gone and my family just moved in to a brand new house. In fact the construction is not entirely over yet. I mean these are really the last touches like finishing off the staircase for instance, but still it is no fun waking up to the noises of the vacuum machine.

I feel a little like a stranger even in my own room, I feel alienated. I guess it will take some time for me to really feel like home around here. My room is beautiful and it fits perfectly well with my personality. I have my mum to thank for picking out the perfect design! Funny thing is that my brother feels a little bit the same about the entire thing. We are super happy to have this amazing change and yet we still feel a little weirded out by the situation. Do you ever feel this way after moving in to a new place? At the same time this sudden realisation hits you – any change requires adjusting and one always feels strange at the beginning of the process! Something tells me, once we adjust and accept this place will become a home for many memories that we will create with our friends and family! And this is the most important thing in the world to be surrounded by people that love you!

Anyhow, this is just the beginning of my summer adventure! Watch out for more posts on various topics and remember summer is the time to have all the fun!
