Cities I have been to, part II

Looks like this it's time for travel recollections: Kyoto, Barcelona and Madrid... so many memories!

Tämä näyttää olevan matkamuisteluiden aikaa: Kioto, Barcelona ja Madrid... niin paljon muistoja!

There and back again

More oldies but goldies... Maybe it's a high time to read the book and watch the movies again?

Lisää vanhoja klassikoita... Ehkä olisi jo korkea aika lukea kirja ja katsoa elokuvat uudelleen?

Cities I have been to

These arrived both yesterday, bringing many memories within... I visited Rothenburg o.d. Tauber in 2007 and Hamburg (last time) in 2016. Oh well, now I really feel like wanting to travel to Germany after a while!

Nämä molemmat kortit saapuivat eilen ja toivat kasoittain muistoja tullessaan... Rothenburg o.d. Tauberissa kävin vuonna 2007 ja Hampurissa (viimeisimmän kerran) 2016. Yhtäkkiä tuli kova hinku matkustaa Saksaan - johan edellisestä kerrasta on pieni iäisyys!

Sakura

This card flew from Japan to our flat yesterday - I can not believe that it's been more than two years (!) already when we visited the country. I did not get to see sakura back then, so a sequel is needed at some point...

Tämä kortti saapui eilen Japanista postiluukkuumme - tuntuu hullulta, että siitä on jo yli kaksi vuotta (!), kun kävimme kyseisessä saarivaltiossa. Silloin en tosin päässyt näkemään kirsikankukkia, sakura-aikaa, joten jatko-osaa odotellessa...
