Kseniia: I must admit, looking at the enormous captions Alex is posting on Instagram lately, I start feeling a bit guilty. Seriously, not all my blog posts are that long!.. Wait a minute! But doesn’t it mean his captions can actually make a great post? Well, we’re about to find it out, as I’m posting his latest Instagram update here. Right now. As a real blog post. Call me lazy, or call me creative (cause I still did an effort to pick photos!), but it’s happening.
