This must be the brightest pink building I've ever seen. The historical center of Olomouc is all pastel colours.

It was really windy today in Ostrava, which was actually a relief since it was scorching hot, +29 C. The locals told us this is not typical for this time of year, but it is typical for July and August. I am very happy about the three summer dresses I got from H&M. Let's see how hot it is at the office tomorrow.
Today was a great day because we finally signed the lease for our new apartment! We can move in as soon as the previous tenant has moved all his stuff out - he promised to do it by tomorrow or May 1st at the latest.
My sandals and sunglasses are from India, purse is from a thrift store in Helsinki (I think I paid 2 euros for it). The watch is Hilfiger and I got it at Hurghada airport in Egypt.

I went shopping for summer dresses yesterday since I realized that the office where I work does not really have air conditioning. So if we're going to have 3 months of this kind of heat, I need something new to wear to work. I got 3 dresses at H&M. Yep, I am now living in the Czech Republic but I am still shopping at the same old Scandinavian stores: H&M and Ikea (at Ikea, we got some bedding and some hangers).
Here in Ostrava, it suddenly got hot. It was +27 C today and it feels hot!! Just a couple of days ago, I was still wearing gloves in the morning so the weather changed practically overnight. Now the apple and cherry trees are already in full bloom.

We have left Finland permanently and are now settling down in Ostrava in the Czech Republic. This is me arriving in Ostrava with tons of luggage. Jeans are H&M men's jeans (10 eur on sale!) and the down jacket is from Sisley. I bought it in Verona, Italy on a freezing cold day. Luggage by Samsonite.
