KALAMAJA 2016

Kalamaja16-1

Ühe tallinlase ajaarvamist määravad täiesti selgelt kohalikud festivalid – igal aastal annavad suvisele hooajale avapaugu Kalamaja päevad ning suure suve lõppakordiks on Uue Maailma tänavafestival. Ja nii nagu juba kombeks, toimuski sel maikuu imelisel nädalavahetusel Kalamajas taaskord festival, mis tervitas külalisi suurepärase ilmaga, pakkus meeletul hulgal maitseelamusi ning avas ametlikult selle võrratu suvehooaja. Olles Kalamaja päevadel igal aastal eeskujulikult kohal, väisasin üritust ka sel aastal ning, nagu ikka, klõpsasin terve hunniku fotosid. Lisaks tegin tutvust ka oma sõprade vastavatud food truckiga, millel nimeks Kolm Nuudlit ning mis pakub uskumatult (!!) häid aasiapäraseid roogasid. Kes seekord nende juurde head ja paremat maitsma ei jõudnud, siis nende rõõmuks võin öelda, et see food truck rändab sel suvel mööda Eestit ringi ning on kindlasti esindatud ka suurematel festivalidel, nii et hoidke silmad-kõrvad lahti! Ja kas pole mitte tore mõelda, et suvehooaeg on ametlikult alanud ning et kõik need kolm toredat kuud on alles ees?!

Within only a few years, Kalamaja Päevad (Kalamaja Days) has already become a legendary event. It takes place every year in May and is pretty much the opening party of the summer season. It is being held on the streets of Kalamaja, a local trendy neighbourhood in Tallinn, and there are tons and tons of yard cafes, music events, and everything else that street festivals tend to have. This year, luckily, the weather was just as perfect as we had hoped for, so the festival was entirely awesome! And isn’t it wonderful to know that the summer season has now officially begun and that the entire thing is still ahead?!

There’s talk on the street

Here are some photos from today – went to a street festival, ate a lot of food and enjoyed the hell outta this warm weather. Oh, September, I love you!

Summertime madness

Tomorrow will be the very last day of my vacation which means that summer is, at least to me, more or less over. I am very excited about Autumn – it will be super busy, full of work, and there’s so much to look forward to in the coming months. But the end of summertime is always bittersweet, especially when it has been one of the most amazing summers yet. I have done a lot of things that I have never done before and have truly enjoyed life. I attended three festivals (Schilling, Surfilaager, Positivus), visited three islands (Aegna, Saaremaa, and my all-time favorite Vormsi), took many road trips, explored Eastern Estonia, had a lot of fun with my friends, tried new water sports, and so on. A lot of excitement, new people and priceless memories.

So here are some unpublished photos from this summer. Luckily, there’s still a few weeks ’til September, so hopefully there will still be some awesome weekends ahead!

I am off to Positivus festival – this marks the end of my second vacation and is also the last festival that I am planning to attend this summer (I think I’m already suffering from the Post Festival Depression). I will definitely try to take as many photos as I can – I have already edited a bunch of photos from other festivals and will publish them all together after Positivus. Meanwhile, make sure you follow me on Instagram (@britta) and have a lovely weekend! Hopefully I’ll see some of you at the festival as well! :) Cheerios!
