Zdravstvuite

Apparently that means HELLO in Russian (pronounced: Strav_stveetia).

Now I just need to try & remember that!

We're packed & ready to go! We managed to fit everything into 2 backpacks so we don't have to check bags (YAY)!

Passports - check
Flight paper tickets (WHY all tickets aren't electronic now I do now know!) - check
Hotel confirmation - check
Train tickets - check
Ring in safe - check (just in case! don't wanna attract any extra attention - but OUCH it hurt to take it off - feels WEIRD not to have it on)!

AND we're off to Moscow this afternoon!!!!

We arrive at 10:30pm tonight (we have to go via Frankfurt & there is a 3 hour time difference).
Then we have all day Saturday & Sunday in Moscow to explore! Sunday night at midnight we are catching an overnight train to St. Petersburg which arrives at 8:30am Monday morning. I'm SUPER excited about the train! Neither of us has done an overnight train journey before - and we splurged and got a private cabin for just the two of us - ekkk I'm EXCITED!

SO we'll be back in London Monday night! This is our belated second anniversary trip - since we didn't go anywhere in May. GOSH I'm excited!!!!!

Oh and today is my 400th blog post - WOW - kinda cool :)

Oh - and a great quote I came across yesterday about travel...........

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
Mark Twain
