Dunrobin Castle – Seat of the Earls and Dukes of Sutherland – Kessy

Dunrobin Castle – Seat of the Earls and Dukes of Sutherland kessyandjoey.com

People that know me better, also know that I can be quite a princess sometimes haha. I sometimes wave like a princess and I also have a princess-name for myself (one of my weird characteristics haha). Therefore I’m also super into castles. Scotland was perfect for that kind of stuff – we saw numerous castles and fortresses. Some of them were still in use, some were totally ruined. By far the most beautiful castle was Dunrobin Castle on the east coast of the Northern Highlands. Parts of the Dunrobin castle even date back to the 13th century.

Panoramas and Impressions of Scotland – Kessy

Panoramas of Scotland

A few weeks after I came back from my exchange semester in Sweden I went to Scotland with my family. I was in a intensive travel mode haha – I just wanted to see more and more. We went to London for a few days and then made a road trip from London to Scotland. The trip included all the major cities of Scotland, like the capital Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and the home of golf St. Andrews (also the city where William met Kate ; ) ), and other iconic spots, like Melrose Abbey, Loch Ness (which is really unspectacular) or wonderful castles (more about the awesome castles in another blog post soon). Thankfully, my mom planned the whole trip, so I was just enjoying. : ) Continue reading Panoramas and Impressions of Scotland – Kessy

Exploring Saint Petersburg – Architecture – Kessy

Russia-3-2

The second city on my trip was Saint Petersburg in Russia. I have never thought that I will make it to Russia, so I was pretty excited about this city. Normally it is quite hard to go to Russia because of the Visa but as we went there by ferry boat with an organised tour we got the 72h admission to visit the country. As well as Tallinn‘s historic center, also the historian center of St. Petersburg is a UNESCO world heritage. Continue reading Exploring Saint Petersburg – Architecture – Kessy

Exploring Tallinn – Kessy

Tallinn-1

The first stop from my trip last week was in Tallinn, Estonia. We had a guided tour through the city, which is so untypical for me haha. I always explore cities by myself but in that way we heard interesting stories about the city and the Estonian people. For example, I did not know that Estonians love singing and had an event called ‘Singing Revolution’. The city only has about 430.000 inhabitants and I have to say it is a really small city, at least the city center. Continue reading Exploring Tallinn – Kessy
