Catherine the Great’s memories of Reposaari
My husband is playing with dolls; my son hates me and I’ve been too busy with this renovation of Russia stuff. I’ve been thinking about some craft beer and smoothie pop up bars in the Hermitage – now that we’ve gained budget deficit back to people. But, I’m just too fed up with too many think-tanks and meetings – My start-up is going to turn into burnout if I don’t get to chill immediately.
That’s why I came to Reposaari – a place filled with true organic beauty. I want to live my life to the full, and I want to express my love without shackles. Here I don’t have to think about what my Twitter followers think about me. Reposaari is like the look in your lover’s eyes before the first kiss. Here you can live the vintage vibes of the sea – not only buy some stupid stuff from the so-called craft market.
Every building here has its own story, and the only scene you need to get into is the countryside where everyone is welcome. This is like a silent approval from the pickiest vegan baristas. I’d like to live here for the rest of my days, but someone has to get all the hipsters working as a team at home.
Catherine II (1729–1796)
EMPRESS OF RUSSIA
