Hi all! Last time I wrote in this journal, I was about to leave for a vacation in the UK... Since, I've been to the UK and back, plus to Stockholm and to a pile of Finnish outdoor theatres. It's been a busy summer, this one.
The UK trip was pretty fantastic. Me and my mom visited Nottingham, Birmingham, Liverpool and Belfast. I got to see some really interesting cities, amazing museums (seriously, if you're ever in Nottingham, go go go visit the Galleries of Justice Museum. It's maybe the number one best museum I've ever been to), beautiful manors, and even the Titanic museum in Belfast. If you've been watching me here since forever, you might recall I've also been interested in the story of the Titanic since forever... So it was a bit of a dream come true. The whole trip was, to be honest. I've been curious about the UK outside London for a long time, and though a week and a half and a couple of cities is just scratching the surface, I've seen at least a little bit more of the country now. Plus it was fun!
And then, back home, plenty of outdoor theatre. Does your country have outdoor theatre during the summer? Finland has insane amounts of it – and my summer mission was to see as much as I could. If you feel curious about that, I wrote about my experiences in my blog. Spoilers: naked butts, moonshine and jukebox musicals.
I've also been doing an internship for some study credit. And now, all of a sudden, the summer's almost over. The fall's looking exciting too, though, with a plenty of musicals and also some journalism school. Can't just scoot around seeing theatre all the time... Nor would I have the energy to, to be honest – this summer's been so full of things to do, I think I'll just sleep and do nothing for the last two weeks of my vacation. Maybe draw some scribbles, but that's it.
How has your summer been like? Let me know about your adventures!
