I couldn't pass up the chance to get a Soviet Union keychain. Exciting!

This one is straight out of a Russian grocery store in a very strange, ritzy mall. They also had a bunch of MLP kinder eggs!

More fun from Russia! I got really excited when I saw this because I was able to read Lenin's name in Cyrillic. There is a set of four shot glasses inside. I still haven't used them though!

I also was recently introduced to an amazing Russian band, ХЛЕБ, and I have been obsessed over their music ever since. Here is the song that started it all for me. It even has English subtitles- you're welcome! Let me know what you think!

Here is my keychain from St. Petersburg... Russia, not Florida! I'd been wanting to go forever and it was as amazing as I had hoped. It really helped that I had at least learned to read Russian before going even though my speaking grammar leaves something to be desired.

The keychain shows the bridges going up each night although I didn't get to see that. I did get to see the one thing that I really really wanted to see in Russia though: the Church of Savior of Spilled Blood! I couldn't stop looking at it as it is lovely.

The auction called this a horned beast lol and I guess they aren't wrong! I hope everyone else fared well during the hurricane.

I have a soft spot for virgin mary keychains. I don't have one of her holding raptor jesus yet. Maybe some day I hope!

I was going to write this on the new posting thing but it was too scary so here I am back at the old lol. Anyway, Josh needed some pop so we popped (ha) into a grocery store. I saw this keychain so he bought it for me. I like how it has the old watchtowers on it. This store also had kinder eggs so that was a double bonus right there.

I got this rabbit. The European types seemed to have these all over their purses so now I have one too. Yay!

Here I am with this keychain from Estonia. This keychain was super on sale and I think I got it for just a euro or two. It actually has an entire poncho tucked up inside there! I thought that was pretty neat.

Estonia was an unexpected high point of the trip. Talk about a hidden gem! I mean, does anyone ever actually go there on purpose? It had all sorts of towers and walls from the dark ages, old orthodox churches, and little winding streets that I love to meander through. It was nice and hilly too which always makes me think of Pittsburgh, one of my favorite places.

It was very lovely and picturesque. I rarely go to places twice but Tallinn seemed like a really nice place to go for a long weekend if it was a bit closer. Loved it!

I got this keychain from a little market in Klaipeda, Lithuania. It is always so easy to find locational keychains in Europe. I wish we were that advanced here.

Anyway, the keychain is full of little bits of amber. I wanted to take the ferry to the beach to find my own amber bits but I took so long to choose a keychain that we just missed it and there wasn't time to wait for the next one. Oh well.



I loved this creepy statue thing. It was kind of a foggy day so that only added to the charm of this slavic ringwraith type thing. It is supposed to be a ringwraith, right?
