So, let's see what I got for this week starting from F.
This is me, my husband, and my friends celebrating the last event of the Christmas holidays. It is a day when Jesus Christ was baptized in the Jordan River. Christians of Eastern Rite celebrate it on January 19th.
That was a great time. We traveled a lot and our trips made us good friends. A few years ago we had a memorable journey, just a few close friends, to celebrate this festive day in a small village in the Carpathian mountains that is known for its unique traditions. We are wearing our traditional Ukrainian embroidered cloth.
This amazing person also became my friend after a trip. It was very adventurous and not always in a good meaning. But sometimes challenges make people closer. We are friends for 15 years!
I’ve had a period in my life, our weekends and parties were always very fun. Sometimes too fun :))) It wasn't long, about 2 years I think, just before I met my husband. Our children grew up a little and we could feel more freedom.
And these are my ex workmates. There were 4 of us, the craziest girls in the company. We worked a lot but also had a lot of fun. Our parties were all fooling around, pranks, jokes, and laughter. Then, I moved, the girl on the right got married, and it all slowly faded away... Should I say I miss them?
Haha, not the one you expected to see! My Fox is a cunning fictional character who appears in Carlo Collodi's book "The Adventures of Pinocchio". Not even that. This is a girl who plays a Fox from The Adventures of Pinocchio.
My old friend lives far from the city in an eco settlement. Once a year, on the spring equinox they celebrate a day of their settlement. Once I was lucky to come over. It reminded me of my study time when we organized parties. All were done with their own hands: menu and meal, a place to eat and rest area, scene, decorations and costumes, and amusing contests. The common people but very kind, opened and benevolent.
At these shots, it is the same day I wrote about in the first entry. A day Baptism of Christ in a mountain village. When I got up and checked the weather in my phone I couldn't believe it. It was -21 C degrees. Freezing cold, a real winter!
And... we have a tradition for that day in Ukraine: to swim in the ice-hole. The river was covered with thick ice, and they cut out holes for swimming or bathing. You can open the photo in a new window and look at my friend's face :)
Another shot brought from my travel around Ukraine. This piece of log is the best way to make a fire in the wild. The director of the National Reserve told us of this method. It is very fast and fuel-effective, but the main thing is it is safe for the forest.
We prepared dinner for a big party on this one piece of log.
Khotyn fortress is a landmark located on cliffs above the Dniester River. A venue of annual knight tournament, reconstructions and folk festivals.
It was first mentioned in 1001, and very well preserved.
That's all folks!
