One more month!

Exactly one month from today, my parents will be boarding a flight to leave the West behind...and to come visit me in good ol' Mother Russia!

I'm so excited - I can't wait to explore St. Petersburg with them and show them around the incredible city that's become another home to me these past seven months: Moscow. If any readers out there have some tips for "must-sees" in either city or any restaurant recommendations, send them my way! I'm starting to work on an itinerary and I really want to make sure my parents have the best trip ever. Russia is such a cool, fascinating country, and I know I've only barely scratched the surface in my time here so far.

Mum and Dad, just think - in one month you might be flying somewhere over the Atlantic and eating this:

My hearty English breakfast with British Airways back in August


  1. I don't know if you have been yet, but take them to Sky Lounge--on the 22nd floor of the Russian Academy of Sciences- the drinks are quite pricey, but it is worth it for the view of Moscow.

  2. I absolutely cannot wait. Its all I can think about. How many sleeps?

  3. Thanks Robin! I haven't been yet but I just checked out the website and it looks amazing! We're catching a night train to Petersburg so I think we might go to Sky Bar to get a drink beforehand - awesome tip!
