30/7/11- Russia


I don't know about you, but Russia is one country I've always wanted to visit. There is something so mysterious, dangerous, impressive and so interesting about the place.

We had two days in St. Petersburg. Because of visa rules we either had to purchase a Russian visa for those two days, or book a tour with the boat. We booked a tour. Day one was an overall view of the city, with some free time to wander.

I find Russia hard to describe, so lets keep it simple. I really enjoyed our time there, and am so interested to return one day.

Day two we took a day trip out of the city to marvel at the beautiful Catherines Palace.


  1. It sounds strange--but I'm fascinated by their alphabet. A friend of mine took a LOT of Russian in college, and both the spoken and written word were really difficult for her but AWESOME when she got the hang of it.

  2. Oh I agree, I am also completely fascinated by the alphabet and took so many photos of signs!

  3. Oh I would love to go to Russia! I've enjoyed reading about your trip as, although last week I said I had never been on a cruise, I am now going to be going on one at Christmas! It will be quite different to yours as it's a different part of the world, but it's nice to know that you enjoyed yours and got to see so many places!x

  4. PS, I'll definitely let you know how I get on with The Hummingbird Bakery book!

  5. Oh I love it! I feel like Russia would be one of those places that looks and feels like nowhere else in the world! How exciting :) I'd love to go, well I think I'd love to go for a day or two.

  6. Oh, so jealous! I've always wanted to go to Russia - love your pics! x

  7. PS - is that some lovely Picnik editing I spy? ;-)

  8. Thanks for the comments ladies!

    JB- that is very exciting about the cruise, I look forward to hearing about it via your blog I am sure!

    T-That is exactly the case, it was hard to figure out what Russia was like, as I was trying to compare it to other places, to really figure it all out. But really, I loved it.

    Elle-Thanks! :) Yup, Picnik is great! Thanks again
