Good day to all reading this blog, and to all those not reading it too!
The weather in Lappeenranta is said to be not as summer-like, as it normally should be. When leaving Lappeenranta for my professional practical training, I must have taken the summer warmth along to Moscow, as the temperature rarely drops below +25 °C here.
During the last days of my stay in Lappeenranta, the weather was very rich in lovely summer days, and I managed to capture it with my phone camera. In this blog today I would like to share the passion that I have to the nature of beautiful South Karelia, pictured on the modest works of mine. I do not claim to be a professional photographer, so do make an allowance for the low resolution of my camera and the amateurish skills.
There is no excuse for anyone to stay at home when the weather is like this. It is a criminal negligence, so to say. There was no excuse even for me, although I had four exams knocking at my door. Simply irresistible charm.
Do take a bike ride or a walk. In doing so, you will most probably be rewarded with an even more beautiful view. I made this shot on my way to the university. A pleasant view to behold every day. Believe it or not, I never get tired of it. It is like a breath of fresh air.
If you take just one turn off the beaten track, you might discover a sunlit meadow, at which you can walk, play sports, exercise or have a picnic with your friends.
While cycling slowly on one of the numerous bicycle lanes, you will hear the wonderful birdsong that will accompany you all the way. Astonishingly, I rarely wake up to the sound of my alarm clock, but I am very much likely to wake up to the birdsong and the sunlight flooding my room. It is often so, and I need just a single glance to awake.
One of the lovely mornings in May.
You definitely would not like to miss the chance and take a bike ride or a walk along the shore of Saimaa Lake. The sceneries are spectacular! I know from my own experience that it is also a very good place for jogging. The forest paths and trails are much better for the feet than the asphalted ones.
While on your way home, you might contemplate a wonderful sunset which will not leave anyone indifferent to the charming beauty of South Karelia.
The photos that you see in this blog are just a few of the many beauties that you can get to see here. Come and explore yourself, and you will definitely encounter the even more spectacular sceneries.
This is all for today.
Have a nice day and see you soon :)
