I found the apartment on Noviy Arbat #16 via Lonelyplanet.com and reserved through the website. On the confirmation, it provided a telephone number to call to arrange access. Thankfully, my girlfriend is fluent in Russian, as neither the lady doing the check-in nor the contract were in English. The contract has some tricky clauses that my girlfriend quickly singled out, and with a little discussion these were ultimately altered in writing before I signed.
The apartment we got, was actually a different apartment we had booked (so #16 is not the apartment we stayed in, but can't remember the actual number). Somehow, the apartment we had booked was not available. Our apartment was a little further from the centre (but on the same road) and bigger. For the 2 of us, it was huge, although the furniture was old, it was in a pretty good condition apart from the bathroom that suffered from leakage from the apartment above.
Our worst experience was on the last night, when we found the key not to be working late at night. After repeated attempts, we finally got hold of someone at the leasing agency. This took us hours. When he also could not open the apartment, we were finally offered an alternative close by. By then, it was early morning, but we slept okay in that place. They next day, we could retrieve our luggage from the original place and they agreed to a late check-out.
All in all, it was not a bad experience as it provided a much better deal then a hotel, but the service was dismal.

Sergiev Posad

Following my breakfast of boiled sausage, ham and eggs, and black coffee, I was met in the foyer by Maxim who was to be my guide and another man who was to be my driver for the day. A third man, Nicholas, was there to collect my 9,500 roubles (AUD 290.00) for a days visit to Sergiev Posad. I had decided that as I had already seen the French impressionists at the Puskin Gallery and the traditional Russian art, including the famous Andrei Rublev icon of the Trinity, at ...

... to the famous Nikulin Russian Circus, one of the oldest in Russia. After some backs-and-forths and ups-and-downs, I make it to the hostel conveniently located in an ally, off an unmarked street, with a small green sign that is of course in Russian. You get what you pay for.

*Nikulin Circus is a top tourist site, but I've been forewarned it's not the ideal visit for animal rights ...

... and the flight time was 3hours 20 minutes. We were sat in Premium Economy along with 6 other passengers leaving the other 23 seats in the cabin vacant. I wish all flights were as spacious as this!

3 hours 20 gave me more than enough time to watch an in-flight movie. I chose ‘Beyond the Candelabra’, a biopic about the showman Liberace starting Michael Douglas in an award winning performance as the flamboyant pianist. The film certainly was ...

... raged through the workshop and which was never rung! It is massive with the broken piece weighing 20 tons just itself. We were then led through the beautiful garden which borders the Kremlin Walls and could look down and see the Helipad which is used for Putin to get to and from the Kremlin. Our next visit was to the Cathedral of the Archangel Michael. This is the burial place of the early Tsars before the capital was moved to St Petersburg, with tombs lining the walls. ...

Once again we have had a very full but also very exciting day in Moscow. The purple or Chameleon Group shared busses with Green and Orange again and also shared their guides with the exception of the Moscow Metro where purple was reunited with our own guide. Today we were bussed to Red Square. This square is very large and rests outside the walls of the Kremlin. The walls of the Kremlin serve as a backdrop on one side of ...
