Seaside adventures: beach and the military

July 28th was the blissful day when I and E. were finally able to relax on the beach, even by the seaside in Karepa village (it's in Northern Estonia). By the way, we also went there last year on the 23rd of July and here is my blog post about our previous trip. And what a coincidence that I even wore the same bikini back then! Oh the memories!

But this year we additionally discovered a place called Rutja Airfield (Estonian: Rutja lennuväli) which is a disused military airfield on the northern coast, located 13 km west of Kunda. The airfield was built during the Soviet era and until its closure in 1990 it was home to the 66th Soviet Attack Air Regiment, flying up to 45 Su-17 Fitters.


Since its closure the airfield lies abandoned and most of the buildings at the airfield have been stripped bare. As some of you may already know, I and E. pretty much love forsaken places. Mainly because of the historical values, the interesting tales behind the locations and the excitement but also because of several fascinating findings.We always debate about history and try to build some liable story in connection with the deserted place. Well, it's simply exciting!

Anyhow, before driving back to Jõgeva we had to deal with massive hunger, so fresh-baked pizza from Brezza in Rakvere totally saved our day. Oh, and as usual, I succeeded in fast shopping and tracked down two tops from Lindex: a bright red crop top (7,95 2,39) and The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn part 1 tee (14,95 4,49) from children's section.


fruit scarf - thrifted; sunnies - Emporio Armani; top - thrifted DIVIDED by H&M; denim shorts - Amisu (New Yorker); bikini - Censored (New Yorker); flip-flops - Gisele Bündchen Ipanema (closer photo); Hello Kitty rings - received with cheese curds of the same name (haha).


By the way, when it comes to The Twilight Saga I finished reading Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer during my summer vacation. It just became addictive and I could not stop before I was finished, though afterwards I desired more and felt sad because The Saga had ultimately ended. My goal was to put an end to the book before the last film, so mission accomplished! And additionally I can wear the tee whenever I feel like reminiscing. What is your relationship with The Twilight Saga?


Altogether we spent a pleasant day off together and I hope you enjoy the photo-overload I've compiled. Let me know your thoughts because I wholeheartedly love hearing from you!

  14. I get what you mean about discovering old places. It's always, always so exciting! I'm glad you were able to visit the beach. I still need to do that. I've been so busy, sigh. Anyways, I like the Twilight Saga. I'm not crazy over it, but it's good. :]

    P.S. I'm sorry I haven't been around to visit your blog. Thank you for checking out my ASOS outfit!

    You have so many awesome tatoos! I have only one and it's fun to see yours! I also like how you wear a headscarf! so stylish! All the pictures are absolutely beautiful (especially the magnificent sunset). I also love your black and white photo!

  20. Love the photos :) I love how Summery your Summer photos are and Wintery your Winter ones are - obvious, I know, but it seems like you have extremely seasonal weather where you live!

    I read the Twilight Sage maybe 3/4 years ago and was totally addicted. I was doing my end of school exams, the most important ones, but was so caught up in it, I just read until like 3am every night and before I went to school haha. I loved it so much and have re-read them all so many times. I get really caught up in characters and feel really sad when books finish because I don't wanna leave them behind. Same situation when I read The Hunger Games!

    Anyway, great post, pictures and your nails are amazing!

  22. Girl, I'm in love with your tattoos! Not a big fan of Twilight, but I heard "Shades of gray" is like twilight but more pornographic :D , so you can check it out. Everyone loves it.

  23. Dear Maiken, I am the ultimate Twilight fan! :) I hate the movies of course, they are pathetic, but the books are fantastic! Very well written and consuming. I loved reading them, I finished them for less than 5 days, I was so obsessed. And I have to say that I had a moment when I found every hot-blooded man really unattractive. I know that's ridiculous, yes :)))
    You look amazing on these photos and I absolutely love your tattoos :)

    Kisses.

  24. You are such a babe, love the casual beach outfit. ALSO TWILIGHT!! I love it, I don't care what people say I was completely addicted from book 1 and made all my friends addicted too. haha. How can you not! So excited for the last movie.

  25. I completely share you opinion! Damon is... wow! How can he be so handsome, ah?!
    Do you watch True Blood? I'm so into these series. This TV show is so hilarious, I'm a huge fan of its sense of humour. And it's a lot more deeper than a classic teen vampire drama. It's really good and there is one vampire named Eric... sooooo hot :) I recommend this show :)

    Kisses.

  26. Wow Maiken you look incredible! Deja vu that your wearing the same bikini at the same place as last year!? The views are incredible and that deserted Airfield looks incredibly interesting and also a little eary. I think my curiosity would over ride my fear going to a place like this,to see what you can find and learn.
    Love your nails! gorgeous colours and nail art.Love the adorable hello kitty rings and of course theres always time to shop! Loving your new tops x

    The last photo of the sunset is absolutely beautiful x

  27. Oh, this is such a great idea! I'll have to try it! It sound perfect for me, because I can't stand sitting in the chair for so long, I always find myself with my legs on my head... I'll try work out while watching them. I watch all kind of series too. My favourites are TVD, Pretty Little Liars, Misfits, Game Of Thrones, How I met Your Mother, Heroes, True Blood, Drop Dead Diva, Lost, House MD and so on, and so on... I can't even count them all...
    It's so nice we have this TV Show obsession in common :) And what's your favourite movie?

    Kisses.

  33. Looks like you had fun! Your nails are so awesome; I wish I could do that myself. The coral shade is so perfect for summer. Your headscarf is equally summery and has such a great vintage/boho feel to it. Love!

  36. It looks like you had such a lovely day by the seaside - and discovered some fascinating things, too. I share your interest in old and abandonned buildings; I love to see the history they hold and I also think there is something very interesting about the way building slowly decay over time when they aren't in use. I would love to see this airfield one day!

  45. Your headwrap is such a great accessory and your nails are beautiful (and damn girl, share some of that bikini bod with the rest of us!) I must admit that I hated the Twilight movies, never read the books though.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Okay, first of all, you have a freakin' hot bikini body. I'm super jealous. These pictures you took are gorgeous. It looks like such a pleasant place to take a trip! There aren't a whole lot of people around. People are so annoying; it's nice to go places where you can be alone.

    May the force be with you.

  49. I love the fruit print scarf, it is so cute! And oo is the water cold?? I can never swim completely in the ocean or lake because I am afraid of the cold. I have read the Twilight saga too! I liked it a lot but I haven't reread it in awhile because I was too busy reading the hunger games :)

  50. Hopefully i'm going to the beach in two weeks or so, I need to be in the water. I actually read the books before the movies came out and loved them although I can't stand the movies.
