Gingham and Freddies of Pinewood

This week I have been stung by nettle many times, eaten buckets of raspberries and found several kilos of mushrooms. I'm sure it's getting repetitive now, hearing about how many things I have found in the forest and eaten...but I swear that it is a totally normal thing here! Mushrooms in Russia come in a wide range of varieties and flavors, and can be fried and served with mash (which is how I like them) or pickled.

Something I always love about being here is that I can actually enjoy spending time outdoors. In Australia I would never just go for a walk in the bush like its no big deal, let alone walk in long grass - or even lie in it for that matter! Basically it's a good day when I have gone for a run in the park and haven't encountered a brown snake on the footpath.

  2. Never! Please keep sharing and regaling us with everything that you so and see in Russia. These posts and tales warm my heart and fuel my own dream of setting foot in that vast, storied nation one day all the more.

  5. That last photo! So old Hollywood glamour! It's amazing how you make even jeans look movie-star worth Harlow. Plus, the forest stories never get old. We simply don't have anything like this at all in Australia. ❤

  8. It just sounds like such an amazing break to be able to spend time in the Russian countryside walking in the woods and picking food to eat! I'm sure people can do that in Australia too (though like you said it's a bit more dangerous, haha) but I just never do it myself so it sounds so charming and sweet. x
