home and away

between seeing the ancient towns of izborsk, pskov and novgorod, venturing north to finland (joensuu and helsinki) and finally seeing tallinn, i was really only in saint petersburg for about two full days.
all of these places are so lovely, so charming in vastly different ways. i'm still reflecting on and processing my impressions; there is a whole collection of photographs, drawings and herbariums still left to share.

from top left: 1) rest stop near joensuu 2) koli national park, finland 3) picking gooseberries at our country house 4) izborsk 5) pskov 6) novgorod
