Second day in Uppsala. We did more walking around the town and visited The Uppsala University Palaeontology Museum, which was awesome. All these old animal and dinosaur bones and fossils were fascinating… and also really really scary to me xD History frightens me and I get scared in museums, even though I absolutely love visiting those places.

In the evening, we caught another overnight boat back to Estonia. It was a great trip, I loved it a lot. Sweden is a beautiful country and I am absolutely in love with their nature and landscape.

We got back home and unpacked. I took a long nap and then I spent the rest of the evening baking some cakes for the open gardens café event during the Pelgulinna street festival the next day.

 Also, Loki helped me unpack

 Nomnom. Sadly, I have no idea what most of this was as I didn’t order it myself and I couldn’t read the menu anyway. It was delicious though!

 Baked tomatoes, chicken and other meats on a stick

 Rice with butter and some sauces. The salad was sadly very bitter 😦

 Cake and ice cream

We took Loviise to her horse clinic near Uppsala and then proceeded to just hang out in Uppsala with my boyfriend. We went to Ikea where we bought a bunch of unnecessary stuff with a few useful exceptions xD Then we just walked around the city centre for a long while and visited Museum Gustavianum where they had a lot of ancient Egyptian artefacts on display. I had never seen a real mummy before… it was so cool and it also freaked me out a lot. I mean, one day you die, you get buried and then thousands of years later you end up as a museum exhibit. How fucked up is that? I felt weird taking a photo, because it used to be a real person once, so I didn’t.

Anyway, I had a great time walking around and in the late evening we had dinner at a Persian restaurant together with Loviise and her clinic people. It’s odd to me that horse training sessions are called clinics xD

Game On 2.0

Apparently I am a hopeless case when it comes to blogging. I have big difficulties with sticking to my daily posting… It looks like that I let my moods control my life too much, because the sole reason why haven’t updated for a while again is that I simply haven’t been in the mood to do so. Such character. Wow. Such determination. Unbelievable that there used to be a time in my life when I blogged up to 10 times a day… Sure it was just personal ramblings in a semi-personal journal, but at least it seemed to come easy to me. Nowadays… nothing written comes easy.

Anyhow, we went to Sweden again last month. Our objective was to visit an exhibition called “Game On 2.0” which was basically an exhibition of computer and console games. We also wanted to visit that huge sci-fi book store again :3 It was a great fun trip altogether.

Arriving in Stockholm

Matching manicure!

A little bit of Viking history

Playing tourist

Exhibition time!

As it turned out that you couldn’t really walk into the game exhibition whenever you wanted, we decided to explore the science and technology museum where it was held as well.

Satellite

An early microwave oven

Tetra packs

I remember seeing those condoms for sale in Estonia as well when I was a kid, but back then I had no idea what they were xD

Dishwasher

And on to the game exhibition.
Hello Miss Lara

Pachinko

Early arcade games

This looks like childhood 😀

Not only were there different consoles on display, you could also try out some ancient games. Most of them were emulated, but were still pretty fun.

Boyfriend is not doing so well with this one xD

Yay Tetris!

Even though they let only a certain amount of people into the exhibition area, the place was still super crowded and it was sometimes difficult to get a chance to try out a game.

Mega Man

Playing a Japanese bullet hell game xD This one was super nuts! I loved it :p

Hand held games

Super Mario concept art

From crappy graphics to silly remakes


Tron! 8D Though I was disappointed that it was a tank game instead 😦
Now the exhibition was great and all, but I really didn’t like that there was a time limit for the exploring. I didn’t have time to read anything about the consoles, only got to try a few games and by the time we reached the last hall, they started ushering people out of the door already 😦

Anyway…

There were some Brazilian inspired stage shows happening on the boat on our way back.

Wasn’t anything special, but fun to watch still.

I was sadly one of the few people who thought so xD

Great trip, can’t wait to go again :p

This was the first sign that greeted us when we got back to Tallinn… apparently Estonia has been renamed to AleCoq Country…
