... span of a goldfish so normally really struggle with museums but our guide somehow brought it to life. I have never met someone so well versed in history and art, on top of this she was clearly passionate about it and has an incredible memory. I tried to catch her out by reading the tags to see if she was getting the information correct and on every single one she was right.

That night we boarded an overnight sleeper train to Moscow, It was tight and cramped but ...
