The Bucket list #1: There’s a rumor in St. Petersburg.

Back in March my best friend came up with a really good idea! She pulled two notebooks out of her purse and handed one to me “Let’s start making a bucket list! We will carry these books with us and whenever we come up with a new point for our list, we can just write it down.” On that day we wrote down the first few things on our list and I added more and more ever since. I thought it would be a nice idea to make a post about every thing on that list that I checked of. Well, today is the day: Number one of the Bucket List is completed!

#1 There’s a rumor in St. Petersburg

When I was in Elementary School my friend and me would meet after school and watch this movie together – Anastasia. It was always this movie, we loved it so much :) Here is a short resumé for all of you who haven’t seen the movie:

The daughter of the last Russian Tsar, Anastasia, is found by two Russian men, Dimitri and Vladimir, who seek the reward that her grandmother promised to the ones who’ll find her. But the evil mystic of the Tsar family, Rasputin, still wants the Romanov family to be destroyed forever.

At one point in the movie the 18 year old Anastasia is coming back to the empty palace. While wondering around in the palace, Anastasia finds the ball room which helps her remember her childhood as a princess and she starts to dream about dancing through the room with her dead family.

I always wanted to do that too! Not dancing with my dead family of course, but being there, in that palace, in that very room and feel the magic! :) So I did it! And lucky me, I got to take pictures too. So here you go :)

  1. What an honor and privilege to share with you in your first bucket list completion!!! What a beautiful palace it was, rivals with none other in my book, above the Vatican or Palace of Versailles…

  2. How funny! I was looking at the map the other day and I marked some cities I would like to visit in the next few years. St Petersburg is one of them! Are you going to share more photos and info about the city?
