    I'm planning my trip to Russia next year. But I am an independant traveller. Tours are boring and expensive most of the times. So I prepare all required ducuments by myself, get them translated by https://pickwriters.com/russian-translation-services. These days you can learn about places just by using Internet. Wikipedia is free! And for me personally, I like freedom and flexibility and I like to do my own things. Otherwise if you don't want to plan your trip - then your choice is to take tours.

    If you have any questions - feel free too ask. Plan is a great thing to make your trip safer.

    A belated merry Christmas to you too. I had no idea that you celebrate it on a different day to the rest of the western world.

    Not only us, but also the Georgian, Serbian and Jerusalem Orthodox churches and monks on Mount Athos.
    It's because of the discrepancy between the duration of the astonomic year and the calendar.

    Everything is melting now in Moscow

    And I've been involved in a minor car accident with a piece of ice flown from the truck on highway. I was a passenger and it flew right into the driver. No injuries, only sad picture.

    It's the right time to feel nostalgic about Summer :-)

    Thanks so much for showing us around! Not likely to ever see in person but who knows? That blue coupe is fantastic! Very nice custom work.

    I’d like to visit Russia one day. Sometimes there are tensions between the Russian and American governments. How is the feeling of just regular Russian people toward Americans?

    Beautiful country. Too bad Putin and the Oligarcs are robbing it blind.
