June 2017 Photo’s

Just some photo’s i have taken over the course of this month, nothing special or spectacular:

Yalta Zoo – Yalta – Crimea – 2015

I used to love Zoo’s, perhaps that’s because i seen them through kids eyes, but with adult eyes, they look depressing prisons for animals that should be out and enjoying their natural habitat.
Last year in Moscow zoo, the animals seemed to want to hide from the heat, on top of that the park……

Cheburechnaya #1 – Saki – Crimea – 2015

On the way back from Shtormove, we stopped off at a traditional cafe, which is called Cheburechnaya #1, they specialise in Chiburekki, a delicious snack, or a meal if two or more are ate.
This food comes in a few different forms, with meat, with meat, cheese and tomato and just cheese, now i am……

Shtormove – Crimea – 2015

When over in Crimea this year, the parent in laws took us to Shtormove, where we stayed for about five days, the place had a real beach with sand and not a pebbles like Sevastopol, whilst there i took some photo’s, of the food at the place we stayed, the beach, the creatures and plants……

The place is called……

A Random Russian Cake – #Crimea #Sevastopol

Cakes and buns in Crimea are quite different than what they are back home in Ireland, i am used to buns and cake made with fresh dairy cream and i love that taste, cakes in Crimea however do not seem to have fresh dairy cream and the texture of the bread feels different.

That being……

My First Adventure With Haggis

Haggis is a traditional food of Scotland, originally it was made inside the stomach of a sheep, but most butchers have moved from that to just using sausage skin, its ingredients include lamb and beef, with oats and spices, i had always wanted to try it, but didn’t quite muster up the courage and even……

Images Of Navy Day Parade – Sevastopol – Crimea – 2014

The first time i seen this, was about two years ago and then Ukraine and Russia performed the parade together, which i think was the first time they did this, before then, Russia performed the parade themselves and its back to that way this year.

I wasn’t that close when i was taking the photo’s, most……

Some Beautiful Swans In Crimea
