From Russia with love

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Hard to pin point as SO many awe inspiring moments- The Hermitage, Church of spilt Blood and that ceiling , Faberge , The Kremlins size and St Basils, I could go on.....

What did you think of your group leader?

Marsha was adorable- her knowledge, her love of Russia, her concern for our enjoyment and well being, her smile again I could go on....

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Check weather! Took far too many winter clothes as was expecting -20 temps but it was not! MAYBE if ice on streets take studs for shoes! I took mine but did not need them! But could see times when essential! when not outdoors you can boil alive they do not skimp on heating in Russia!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

In the mornings get up early and explore on your own rather than lounge in hotel bed and likewise go out after group meal at night as by night places are so lit up just as they are grey and mysterious at this time of year in the morning!
