First time in Russia

In September 2012, I was very fortunate to have an opportunity to visit Russia via St. Petersburg to attend an annual meeting of the North Atlantic Fisheries Organization.

On my first day I got an amazing orientation from fellow VTer Natalya2006. When the day was done I had seen most of the cites in the city centre and most of the 140 kilometer perimter of St. Petersburg! I was so grateful that I thought I should start contributing to VT once more and I have a new plan.

Instead of exhaustively uploading pictures and tips, I will upload my photos in the galleries and only concentrate on providing quality tips to VT!

    Very insightful and thoughtfully written tips. I got a real sense of 'being there' from your page.
