Greece

GREECE | Sunday, 17 May 2009 | Views [619]

Mike and I arrived back from Greece this morning. We spent 3 nights in Athens, and then 5 in Batsi on Andros Island in the Cyclades. It was consistently warm and sunny eveyday. Visiting the Acropolis was awesome, we also saw the changing of the guard ... Read more >


Tallinn

ESTONIA | Thursday, 20 Nov 2008 | Views [401]

We boarded the Viking Line ferry in Helsinki, bound for Tallinn.  The ferry was a huge ship that seemed to be more of a cruise ship than anything.  There were lots of bars, restaurants and an entire level of cabins.  There was even a live band playing ... Read more >

Helsinki day 2

FINLAND | Tuesday, 18 Nov 2008 | Views [370]

We started the day with a sauna at our hostel, which was different. It's pretty cold here (about 0), with a cold wind off the sea today. I visited the Helsinki City Museum, which was interesting, then Mike and I got the tram uptown to the Ice Rink ... Read more >

Helsinki

FINLAND | Monday, 17 Nov 2008 | Views [473]

Mike, Nick (our friend from the St Petersburg hostel) and I got the morning train to Helsinki. The border control on both sides was easy - the Russians didn't ask us a thing, even though I had all our various paperwork ready. After checking into our ... Read more >


St Petersburg days 2 & 3

Day 2 in St Petersburg, we saw: The Bronze Horseman (statue), Peter & Paul Fortress & Cathedral, a German pub, the Field of Mars & eternal flame, and several wedding parties. I tried caviar for the first time, and didn't like it. Day ... Read more >

St. Petersburg

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Saturday, 15 Nov 2008 | Views [392]

The train trip from Moscow was uneventful.  We slept for most of the 7 1/2 hour trip.  For once there wasn't someone snoring in the cabin with us.  We arrived at 6:30am.  It was still pitch dark outside and the full moon was still quite high in the ... Read more >


Moscow day 3

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Thursday, 13 Nov 2008 | Views [398]

First thing this morning, Michael and I got the metro to a market for some souvenir shopping. The metro at rush hour was mad - a sea of people, and the trains come about every 30 seconds. I read in a guidebook that more people use the Moscow metro ... Read more >


Moscow day 2

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Wednesday, 12 Nov 2008 | Views [402]

What a brilliant city. I didn't expect Moscow to be this beautiful. The weather helps.  It was well above 0 today and not a cloud to be seen.  We went to the Kremlin this morning. While inside the Kremlin we visited a few churches. Inside the Archangel ... Read more >

Moscow

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Tuesday, 11 Nov 2008 | Views [453]

We arrived into one of the many railway stations in Moscow early this morning, and fought our way to buy a metro ticket among masses of people. Our hostel is in a great location, only about a 10-15 minute walk from Red Square. We left our heavy packs ... Read more >


Nizhny Novgorod 2

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Monday, 10 Nov 2008 | Views [392]

Mike and I went to a Russian tapas-style place for lunch, and felt pleased with ourselves for deciphering the menu using the phrasebook (although we ordered one dish twice). After spending a couple of hours in a cheap internet cafe, we saw the latest ... Read more >

Nizhny Novgorod

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Sunday, 9 Nov 2008 | Views [396] | Comments [1]

A few hours sleep made us feel much better.  I woke up with a terribly sore neck though.  I think it's from sleeping on short beds, with hard pillows.  Maybe I'm just getting old.  Our hotel is horrible.  It's another Soviet era disaster.  The sink ... Read more >
