"My Travels" el_ruso's Profile
I was born in Russia, but now live in Miami, USA (which I have quickly grown to love). I have also lived in Houston and New Orleans.
I LOVE to travel, as you can tell. I think one experiences so much more when he travels, that it will take a month at home to match the dose of excitment you get from beeing at a new place for just one day.

Thank you for visiting! I hope you enjoyed the pics and found the tips to be useful.
My plans for the next two years:
Chicago - I am amazed I haven't been there!
Kiev, Ukraine - my family is actually from Ukraine, the Cherkassy province, and I have been to Ukraine last time when I was very very little. Hope to get to know Kiev and see some family.
Southern Spain - always has been a place I was imagining. I am eager to see it with my own eyes!
Italy - I will probably have to divide it into two trips, since there is so much to see and asorb!
Turkey - see the St Sofia and other places.
Israel - obvious reasons.
Great Britain - one of the greatest countries in the world (hopefully though the exchange rates will be more favorable :D)
Well, these are the plans. Let's see how much I will be able to accomplish.
