#1: A crêpe with my name on it that I tried at the supermarket. The name was made of chocolate. Yummy!

#2: The most misogyny sauna hat you could imagine. In translation from Russian, “I’m a great cook. I don’t talk too much. I never have a headache.”

  • This was such a fun post to look through! I can’t get over how cute little Katya was – and I actually LOL’d at the sleeping sales person!

    I’m so glad you had a great trip visiting your friends and family. 🙂

    • Ohhh thank you, Kathryn! I love that picture in pink dress too. My mom made this cute dress for me and I was like, “I don’t like handmade stuff.” Nowadays I have a completely different approach. I would love to wear handmade clothing but I don’t have any. I guess I learned to appreciate things made with love. Actually, I am a DIYer now!

    • Thank you, Jenny! I love reading other people’s travel posts too. That’s the power of blogging: it allows us to feel that we’ve been somewhere while we are just reading about it on the blog.
