"My Travels" SandiMandi's Profile

First trip

My first trip (as far as I can remember) was to Sweden and Scotland in the early eighties. Me and my family went to Gothenburg, Sweden to see some relatives and from there we went to Newcastle, England by boat. Our final destination was Edinburgh, Scotland where we stayed at my aunt's, who lived there (and still does). Unfortunately I don't remember much about this trip, because I was only about 6 yrs old at the time. I made a few more trips to Edinburgh in 1980's and 1990's.

St. Petersburg

In 1998 I was living in St. Petersburg, Russia for three months. Back then I was studying Russian translation in the University of Helsinki, and when I got a chance to study in St. Petersburg I took it without hesitation. It was quite an experience! I've made a couple of short trips to St. Petersburg after that, too. I think it's an amazing city, and I'm already planning to visit it again in 2012!

Outside Europe

My first and so far only trip outside Europe was in 2004 when I went to Dubai with my mum. We stayed there for a week, and although it's quite an artificial place, I really liked it as you can easily combine both city and beach holiday. Also I love shopping, and Dubai was great for that, too, with all its huge shopping malls. I wish to go back some day and see how the city's changed.
